It's the spectacular highlight of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN – and a rough, rocky and risky challenge: the black, alpine Fernar Trail.

For those who bring the technical skills, a strong head and a strong physique, the Fernar Trail is a true bucket list ride! For everybody else it is a no-go.


You start at the top of the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN: the Tiefenbach glacier (2.800 m). The deepblack track runs through super challenging high-alpine terrain down to Gaislach. Prepare yourself for steep passages, gnarly switchback & massive rocks. To recover and refuel you can stop at the huts at the end of the trail. After passing by the wooden huts and Gasthof Sonneck, Gaislach Trail starts to the right and brings you to the lower section of Nene Trail – another technical black natural trail that winds down through the woods and brings you to the final Schteckler Trail and down to the Gaislachkogl station.

The track is part of the Long Trail Fernar.

Please yield to hikers!



The Fernar Trail is only accessible with an organised shuttle, which rides on Saturday, Sunday & Tuesday if the weather is appropriate. 


  • Limited to 30 riders/day

  • Price: € 30

  • Online-Booking the day prior until 4:00 pm -> HERE

  • Meet 15 minutes before start time Bus stop E behind Gaislachkogelbahn (opposite Sport4You) - to the left of Windau footbridge

  • In case of bad weather the shuttle will be postboned to the next fixed day. In case the shuttle cannot take place your money is being automatically refunded, you need to book another slot on the shuttle on another day.
  • Shuttles can be cancelled on the same day under short notice. 

From 10am until 3pm the trail is accessible for hikers only.
