St. Moritz-Innsbruck 8-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 2
An artist with brush and colours, inspired by impressionism, would need weeks for this tour. There would be too many sensual impressions for the artist and the magnificent panoramas of the picturesque Engadin villages like Zernez, Susch, and Lavin, as well as of the wide valleys of Upper Engadin, and of the great forests of the Swiss National Park would be too impressive. Then, suddenly, the scene changes: Welcome to Tyrol! The best place to enjoy conviviality. And also your final destination Innsbruck, a culture city as well as an Olympic city, will impress you with a different cityscape. The artist becomes a bon viveur.
You will cycle on many bike paths and on some forest and gravel roads which are in good condition. The route is slightly hilly and you will cycle up two to three moderate climbs and down many smooth descents
