To customize the search results of the suggested Smart Tours to your needs, the following filter options are available. Each time you make a change, the number of Tours that match your filter criteria will be displayed.

Note: The filter options are only available for Tour suggestions. They cannot be applied within Collections.

Duration/Distance

Move the slider to the desired Tour duration. The selection ranges from 30 minutes to 10 hours. If you want to take a three to four-hour Tour, move the slider from the left side to 3 hours and from the right side to 4 hours.

Alternatively, you can choose to Filter by distance and select a distance from 0 meters to a maximum of 200 kilometers. The maximum kilometers may vary depending on the search area.

Difficulty

There are three difficulty levels, which are also indicated by color codes for each Tour. An easy Tour is marked in blue, an intermediate Tour is marked in red, and an expert Tour is marked in black. The difficulty level of a Tour is based on the required fitness level, the type of sport, and the technical difficulty of the route. Here you can find detailed information about the difficulty levels for each sport.

Start from

You have the option to choose the starting point for the Tour suggestions. You can start from Anywhere, choose a Car park as the starting point, or consider using Public transport as the starting point.

Attention: Currently, the filter option Start from is only available on the website.

Elevation

If you want to take a Tour with at least 500 meters and up to 2,000 meters of elevation gain, move the slider from the left side to 500 meters and from the right side to 2,000 meters.

Surface

Route Type

Circular refers to routes that form a loop. The Tour will bring you back to the starting point. The starting and ending points are the same.

Out and back refers to routes that lead you from a starting point to a certain destination and then require you to reverse your path to return to the starting point. Essentially, you travel "out" to a point along the same route and then come "back" along the same path to where you began.
