The Isel cycle trail

All along the Isel

Covering some 29 kilometres in length and with an average incline of one percent, the Iseltal cycle trail is a great opportunity to leave the bustling little town of Lienz behind for a short time and ride easily to Matrei.


The cycle trail is mostly asphalt and there is just a small section of country road to negotiate to the final stop at Matrei.

From Lienz to St. Johann im Walde (14 kilometres) you get to cycle on a completely asphalted cycle trail with no gradients, along the Isel. From St. Johann i. W. to Huben (6 kilometres) you ride via the old country road, past the Kienburg Ruins, to Huben. From Huben to Feld (4 kilometres) the route then ascends slightly on a country road which doesn’t have much traffic. From Feld to Matrei (5 kilometres), the trail proceeds through a shaded section of forest and then along the main road to Matrei in Osttirol, the main town in the Iseltal.
