Gafadura Mountainbike Tour

The climb from Schaan up to the Gafadurahütte hut at 1400 metres above sea level is the most popular mountainbike tour in Liechtenstein. Hearty food and wonderful views of the Rhine Valley are the reward that await riders when they reach the hut.

This tour from the lively town of Schaan to the remote idyll of Alp Gafadura is for mountainbikers with a good level of fitness. At the foot of the majestic 'Drei Schwestern' ('Three Sisters') mountains, riders will find a tarmac road leading into the village of Planken, located on a plateau around 800 metres above sea level. After passing the last houses, the road branches off into the cool forest and changes to a gravel track which steadily climbs to the pastures of Alp Gafadura. After all that hard work, the Gafadurahütte hut (open from May until October) is the ideal place to have a rest before heading back down.

This trail is very popular, especially during the evenings and at weekends.
