Achensee E-Bike Camp

Sport at the “fjord” is the motto of the Achensee E-Bike Camp. Cycling holidays don’t have to be expensive, and the physical exertion will be kept on a moderate level in the Achensee E-Bike Camp from 31 May to 3 June 2021. Electric cyclists explore the surroundings of the lake in an environmentally friendly way without breaking a sweat.

“Put your fear aside” is our tip: The e-bike is no miracle and the Achensee region offers the perfect surroundings to try an electric bike for the first time, allowing riders a more comfortable and therefore all the more pleasurable way of getting around on the “two-wheeler 4.0”.

Of course, it is important to take the first step, and a little bit of technique is necessary to safely ride a battery assisted bike. The Achensee E-bike Camp from 31 May to 3 June 2021 is an electric bike riding course designed to teach the required skills and basic technique and how to use an e-bike in general. Certified local MTB guides will take riders through the picturesque mountain landscape around Tirol’s largest lake.
