The highlight of the event is the 35-kilometre-long panoramic route through the Nockberge National Park, featuring the stunning alpine landscape and the two challenging mountain stages: Schiestelscharte (2,045 meters above sea level) and Eisentalhöhe (2,038 meters above sea level).

Timekeeping will only take place at the following three mountain stages (26.7 km / 1,806 meters altitude in total). The participant with the best overall mountain time will be crowned "Champ of the Nockis":

- Grundalm – Eisentalhöhe (6.3 km, 536 metres in altitude)
- Radenthein – Bad Kleinkirchheim (8.2 km, 375 metres in altitude)

The finish line is again in Bad Kleinkirchheim at the foot of the Kaiserburg!
