Selected bike tours

  • Cycle route from Monguelfo to the Gsieser Tal valley

    This cycle route starts in the heart of the village of Monguelfo and heads into the valley along the banks of the Gsieser Bach stream. Stay on the old Gsieser Tal valley road until you come to the hamlet of Oberplanken, where you cross the stream. In the hamlet of Preindl, you should follow the main road for a brief period – but you can return to the bank of the stream once you come to the small Church of Mary of the Visitation. The tour then continues on to San Martino, after which you head uphill to the Talschlusshütte mountain hut in Santa Maddalena. The return journey follows the same route in reverse.

    One of the most celebrated and popular cycle paths in South Tyrol is the Drauradweg cycle path that heads over the border to the Austrian town of Lienz. The route to Lienz consists of a well-marked cycle path that is suitable for bikes of all kinds. Although it is 55 km long, the relaxed nature of the route makes it a straightforward prospect – even for families. Riders then board the train for a comfortable return journey from Lienz. Another appealing aspect of the tour is the opportunity to explore two countries by bike as you head from South Tyrol in Italy to East Tyrol in Austria.
