Encounters with the mountains
Enjoy mountain bike tours in La Val – in the heart of the Dolomites in South Tyrol.
The heart of the Dolomites – this is the accolade often given to Val Badia/Gadertal. The area around La Val in South Tyrol is suitably spectacular, with its pristine nature and untouched landscapes, and is the perfect place for relaxing and active vacations. Mountain biking is a good way of exploring the area.
La Val (Wengen) in South Tyrol is placed between the varied Dolomites landscapes and right in the middle of the Fanes-Sennes-Braies/Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park and the Puez-Odle/Puez-Geisler resort. Those places are ideally suited to mountain biking activities. Thanks to its many gravel paths and technically demanding trails, Alta Badia is extremely popular with mountain bike fans. Beginners and professionals alike will find many trails to their liking.
The many tours in the region include the Giro d'Italia road cycling stage in Plan de Corones/Kronplatz, the Maratona dles Dolomites, cycling marathon across spectacular mountain passes, Sellaronda Bike Day, Sellaronda Hero, Europe's hardest cycling marathon, and many other exciting mountain passes and downhill trails through shady forests and rolling Alpine pastures. The one thing all these tours have in common are spectacular views!
