This tour for experienced cyclists commences with a steep ascent above the Argenschlucht as far as the Argenvorsäß. The Argenschlucht is one of the loveliest gorges in Vorarlberg, with its interesting rock formations and impressive gorge faces between 80 and 100 m high. Opposite, you can see the Auer Ried, a nature reserve and home to over 50 endangered species of plant. The tour takes you via lovely alpine paths uphill as far as Vorderkriegbödenalpe and on to Damüls. Via a mountain road and, later, an alpine path, you continue upwards to Ugaalpe. From here, you have a magnificent view of Damülser Mittagsspitze. A steep descent takes you to a stream crossing. Following a gentle ascent, you arrive at Mittelargenalpe. You now return to the valley and cycle to Au (by road from Argenwald).

Author’s recommendation

If you have enough power we recommend you to go by foot to the summit Kanisfluh (2.044m). About 1 3/4 hours walktime up and down.
