The Guggenberg is a wonderfully pleasant mountain to the west of Hermagor. The route leads along asphalt roads, gravel roads and short passages along a forest road.

It is known for its magnificent views far over the Gailtal and reveals a unique panorama of the Carnic Alps. Especially the trail down to Jenig offers a lot of riding fun for everyone, because the route is easy to ride and all you need for safe riding is a solid riding technique.

The tour is also suitable for e-bikes.

Bike rental directly at the starting point!
