3 countries traverse

our transalp alternative

The 3 countries traverse is our personal highlight of the bike season. It is an action packed badass transalp mountainbike traverse with a group of highly motivated people, just packed with your personal belonging all fitted in one backpack and a enduro mountainbike. The style of riding we would refer it to is a backpacking enduro trip full of super long trails with a high diversity of singletrail styles.

The week starts in Austria, then to Switzerland, Italy, and we will end up back in Austria. This week we will be descending approximately 12.000m and ascending around 2000-3000m. We’ll be using lifts, busses, bikes and our own legs

The trip starts in Ischgl where we will be meeting on Saturday evening, with a short briefing and welcome drink to get to know each other. The trip ends on Friday night with a few celebration drinks in a top-secret location in the middle of nowhere. Saturday we will have our last breakfast together and say goodbye.

Each day we will be sleeping in another hut, hotel or apartment. The definite itinerary will be announced on Monday evening. So we can stay flexible in case of the weather and riding abilities, and choose the right trails. 6 nights and 6 breakfasts are included. The price is based on a shared 2 person bedroom and in the huts in a dorm style room.

Surreal Alpine Experience

What level of mountainbiking should I have?

This is a bikepacking enduro trip, that means you will be carrying your own luggage. Because we pack minimalistic, you should think about a backpack with approximately 10-12 kg. The longest day we will ascend 1000m, most of the other days it will be 500m-800m.

You should have experience on s2 singletrails and we will be occasionally riding an s3 trail. Because the trip is focused on descending you should have enough power and energy to descend up to 3000m on a day.
