Motorbike tour to Anterselva - Passo Stalle
Starting in Brunico, this spectacular motorbike tour leads over Passo Stalle to East Tyrol in Austria.
Driving from Brunico towards East, in Rasun we turn off into the Valle Anterselva, a side valley to the Val Pusteria. Having passed the small villages of Rasun di Sotto and Rasun di Sopra, we soon cross Anterselva di Mezzo, Anterselva di Sotto and Anterselva di Sopra. This section of our tour offers beautiful views of the Vedrette di Ries mountain group, with its higest peak Mount Collalto (3,436 metres asl).
At the top of Valle Anterselva we reach the beautiful emerald green Lake Anterselva at 1,642 metres asl and pass the famous biathlon centre. After a short rest, we continue our tour towards Passo Stalle, which connects Valle Anterselva and the Defreggental valley in Austria. Attention: Passo Stalle is closed from the end of October until the middle of May. The single lane road section between Lake Anterselva and Passo Stalle is regulated by traffic lights. Arrived at Passo Stalle, a breathtaking view of Valle Anterselva and Lake Anterselva awaits us.
Arrived in Austria, we drive through the Defereggental valley towards Huben, where we turn off into the road leading to Lienz. Arrived in Lienz, we drive to Sillian, cross the Italian boarder and finally reach our starting point Brunico.
