This trend had to be a success: Perfect curve radii, smooth biking and a long grin on your face. That's "Flow" and that's why the specially created downhill tracks are called Flow Trails! Because hand on heart: even the toughest under the sun don't always want to reach their physical and psychological limits. So if you prefer casual surfing instead of constant shaking, Flow Trails is the best choice for you. Beginners as well as hardcore riders, because it all depends on the course layout and the chosen speed.
Which brings us to Carinthia! Because in the last years here, step by step or better curve by curve, a Flow Trail offer was created, which can easily compete with the best in the Alps! The starting shot was fired in the sunny south of Carinthia, on the Petzen, with a 12km long Flow Country Trail, which by the way was awarded the world's best Fow Trail in 2014. What followed was the expansion of a flowing route network that is characterized by its charm, character and variety. From Naßfeld in the west with its MEX-Line over the Weißensee with three near-natural Downhills in the nature park to Bad Kleinkirchheim, where with 15km the longest Flow Country Trail in Europe has just been created. In the east, the offer on the Koralpe is rounded off with a gentle and a rougher flow trail, while on the Turracher Höhe the latest flow trail is being created and will open its gates in time for the 2020 season.
"The whole is more than the sum of its parts." The Carinthian Sommerbergbahnen also appreciate what Aristotle has already recognized and have packaged their Flow Trails into a fascinating overall offer "Flow Trails Carinthia". This way, pleasure-oriented downhillers can perfectly combine their personal "flow" with service and comfort: From selected, bike-friendly partner accommodations in various categories, to practical shuttle services, flexible ticketing for mountain lift use, equipment rental and the helpful Trail Hotline. For the planning and booking of your flowy bike trip through Carinthia, you will find all the proven "Points of Sales" on this page and of course the specially equipped "Flow Trail Info and Booking Center", staffed by the highly qualified Trail Angels team. So nothing stands in the way to your flow in Carinthia!
