During this adventure, you will ride on slightly exposed trails from time to time. You should also be able to determine when to stop riding and walk through a difficult section.

      Though riding an e-bike will help you tremendously, riding will get difficult and require some technical abilities.

If at some point you won’t be able to finish a section for that day, there will also be an option to get transferred to your accommodation.

By staying at hotels and huts like these, you’ll get to know the Alpine way of life, feel like the locals do, and try out delicious traditional food.
