World’s best mountain biking spots

Some claim that mountains exist to be climbed. Others counter that slopes should not be scaled but rather should be used to accelerate down in a cloud of stones and dust. We've compiled a list of the six top mountain bike locations on the planet in honour of individuals who enjoy things swift and furious.

Winterberg can rival any place in Europe for death-defying downhill, but what makes it stand out is the abundance of berms, rollers, drops, and gaps. These slopes can keep even the most demanding riders entertained if you enjoy doing tricks. The Vakantiehotel Der Brabander is the perfect option for an all-around "play hard, relax hard" experience. This four-star hotel features a spa with five saunas, a pool, a relaxation area, and massage services.

Finale Ligure, Italy

Beware of newcomers. A network of paths rises above this peaceful hamlet and will challenge even the most experienced riders. Many left from a defunct NATO base covered in graffiti. Great rewards include pathways that pass by ruins and a stunning ending on the beach. La vie est belle is a beautiful bed & breakfast with stunning views and one of Finale Ligure's top-rated accommodations.

Whistler is one of the best ski resorts in the winter, but in the spring, it becomes one of the best places on Earth for mountain riding. Nowhere else offers as many kilometres of downhill biking, and with such magnificent backgrounds, it's clear why bikers adore Whistler. Consider Nita Lake Lodge if you're looking for a peaceful lakeside location to unwind at night. Views, on-site massages, and hot tubs are all excellent.

Leogang, Austria

The Alps are at their most beautiful and ideal for biking on the peaks near Leogang. You'll never be able to complete all of the trails and freeride routes in the area. Not to mention Leogang Bikepark, a facility for riders of all skill levels that served as the venue for the 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Championship. There are plenty of places to rest your weary legs in Leogang, but it's difficult to go past Kleintödlinggut, a rural property with bike storage and views of the mountains.

These cities received the highest ratings from travellers on Booking.com for "mountain biking." A minimum of 500 people is required to support a destination for "mountain riding."
