Bike & Hike – Saladinaspitze

In times of e-bikes, cycling can be wonderfully combined with hiking. One of the dream tours is the tour to the Saladina peak in the Lechquell mountains. 32km by bike and 5km on foot. We have tested it for you.

By E-Bike: Lech – Freiburger Hütte

One of the most popular e-bike tours around Lech is the tour to Freiburger Hütte. Together with my colleague I start around 11 o’clock in the Zugertal. Past the romantic hamlet of Zug, I cycle gently uphill through a fantastic alpine landscape. If I recently turned off to the Spullersee with my e-bike, the path now leads me at the turn-off directly towards Formarinsee. We bypass the scenic highlight of the bike tour on the wider road. Again and again, when I am in the back of the Zugertal, I am thrilled by the strong blue of the natural lake. Already around noon we reach the Freiburger Hütte, which we “only” use as a parking place for our bikes.

By foot: A heart in a wall:

From the 1.931m high Freiburger Hütte you continue on foot. At first, the change is a bit difficult, as the hiking trail leads steeper up a meadow slope. After some time, however, we already reach the first pass and look directly at the window wall. The picture is now also known on Instagram, the hole in the rock wall looks like a small heart and is therefore often captured on photo. But from up here we also have a clear view of our destination for the first time: The Saladina peak.

We reach the peak: Saladinaspitze 2.230m

To get closer to the summit, we first have to fight our way through a large rock field. It seems as if the hole in the rock face was not made without a reason. But the closer we get to the Saladina peak, the more beautiful the view becomes. A few short steps on the narrow path before we stand high above the Klostertal after a good hour’s walk. Deep below us runs the Arlberg expressway opposite, mountains of the Montafon are to be recognized and on our valley side both Gehrengrat and Rote Wand are to be seen. What a great panorama mountain!

We reach the Freiburger Hütte – time to calm down!

A little later we start the descent, but not without spending some time under the “Fensterlewand”. From here we can admire the Saladinaspitze once more before we continue in the direction of the “Freiburger Hütte”. While hiking down, we always have a view of the Rote Wand and Formarinsee and reach the Alpenvereinshütte of the Freiburg section relatively quickly. Of course we still stop there – the green sunshades are too inviting. All in all, we are more than happy to have tackled this Bike&Hike tour and can only warmly recommend it to everyone. We are looking forward to the next time!
