This adventure starts at the valley station of the Millennium Express in Tröpolach. A leisurely ride, including bicycle, to the top station on the Tressdorfer Alm, and optionally on to the highest point of the tour, the Madritsche. At the top there are 11.7 kilometres between you and the valley. The route downhill leads mostly over gravel and requires a good deal of fitness - especially in the upper arms. On the way through the Carnic Alps you will pass impressive rock formations and the typical flora and fauna of the region, i.e. the panorama that previously caused amazement from the valley.

Author’s recommendation

Don't race downhill, but enjoy the landscape that surrounds you and consciously perceive the environment, the pure mountain air and the flora and fauna! There is certainly still time for a stop at the Rudnigalm - Gailtaler Almkäse, buttermilk, yoghurt, Scots and of course Brettljausn are waiting for hungry bikers!
