Sellaronda by bike instead of skis

Following in the footsteps of the 'Sellaronda Hero': 60 kilometres of cycling, four major mountain passes, 4,300 metres of difference in altitude and a lot of adventure

It's beyond belief. Anyone who has done the Sellaronda tour on skis will remember it forever as a truly fascinating experience. Now you can experience the same by mountain bike in summer. The Sella massif is also referred to as the Ladins' Gralsburg (castle of the Holy Grail). At the massif, all four Ladin valleys (Gadertal/Val Badia,Grödnertal/Val Gardena, Fassatal/Val di Fassa, Buchsteintal/Val Cordevole) meet. In the course of the years, the steep rock faces of the Sellaronda were/have been made accessible. On all four sides, ropeways lead to the top. With around 1,200 kilometres of slopes and more than 400 ropeways, Dolomiti Superski has developed into the biggest skiing arena worldwide. Now the Sellaronda is being discovered as a biking paradise. The fantastic MTB tour around the Sellaronda must be led by an experienced guide, otherwise bikers will not get the necessary lift tickets. Your MTB challenge: 60 kilometres of single trails, downhill routes, hiking trails, linking paths, numerous ropeways, 4,300 metres of difference in altitude (of which you will be cycling 750), four mountain passes, the highest point at 2,500m above sea level (PortaVescovo), and a spectacular mountain panorama not to be found anywhere else in the world. Your reward: a truly unforgettable adventure for any experienced biker. Follow in the footsteps of the 'Sellaronda Hero'.

All the good children live on the sunny side, they say. On this hike, we will explore the world of Heidi, Peter and Schnucki, the goat, three cartoon characters living in the Alps. The hike crosses the sunny southern slopes of the Ahrntal valley, taking us past wild water on a beautiful trail leading to an old mountain farm, where cheese is produced. One cheese is called Heidi, the other Schnucki; and there is a good reason for these names. Just wait for the story!

Snowshoe Hike with Graukäse Cheese Tasting

Snowshoe Hike with Graukäse Cheese Tasting

The valerian spikenard or Alpine valerian (valeriana celtica) is a delicate flower with light blossoms. The Speikboden in the Ahrntal valley is named after this medicinal plant, which is endemic in the Eastern Alps. The place is a popular skiing area in winter and it seems unlikely to find quiet spots there. We will, though. Allow us to take you on a snowshoe hike to a special place that will enchant you.
