In South Tyrol, rail and bike can be combined almost seamlessly. At many train stations bicycles may be rented out and can be returned at different rental points. We decided to test these connections by taking a realxing tour through the val Pusteria valley.
The Plan de Corones is the leisure area of the Val Pusteria. Especially in winter but more and more also in summer. We accompany Michaela, Macke and Hans, who enjoy the Plan de Corones with their mountain bikes. With professional lifts, demanding cycle tracks and gorgeous downhill trails.
The Valle Aurina valley makes hearts leap for joy by mountain bikers. Whether pros or families – numerous cycle tours with different levels of difficulties are available. Idyllic places want to be discovered. Also the Klausberg hiking area can be perfectly experienced by mountain or e-bike. A fantastic destination at 2,500 m asl., with a breathtaking view on the alpine world of the Valle Aurina valley.
The combination of bike and train is an optimal way to discover South Tyrol. An excellent network of well-maintained bike trails that seamlessly connect to public transportation systems along with many bike rental stations, makes South Tyrol a paradise for cyclists. An example of this is a relaxing biking adventure through the high via Pusteria valley from Valdaora to San Candido.
The Fanes-Sennes tour. A very scenic but challenging mountain bike tour through the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Reserve. The ascent, as well as the descent, requires some technical expertise. We start in San Vigilio di Marebbe and bike to Pederü before heading to Pices Fanes. Next, we go through the Passo Limo to Lake Limo, bike to Gran Fanes, then down to Ponto Altes and the Sennes mountain hut before finally cruising downhill to Pederü and San Vigilio.
An entertaining and diverse cycling experience in the Val Pusteria Valley. We cycle from Valdaora to Lake Braies where we enjoy the beauty of the eastern part of South Tyrol: picturesque villages, high mountains, dense forests and maybe the most beautiful lake found in the Dolomites.
Cycling in the Val Pusteria is a particular experience, and is possible or along the paths in the valley - such as the Pusterbike cycle path - or on difficult mountain trails high above the valley basin. Moreover two important cycling events are taking place in the Val Pusteria: the Dolomiti Superbike and the Maratona dles Dolomites.
