This tour promises not only breathtaking Dolomites views, but also unforgettable impressions of the beautiful Lake of Carezza (Karersee). An ebike is recommended in any case, as the tour with a total length of 110 km and almost 4,300 high meters is quite demanding. In order to keep the metres in altitude within limits, several lifts are used. Overall, the tour offers a wonderful mix of thousands of panoramas, single trails, gravel roads, cycle paths, forests and meadows.

Turn-by-turn directions

The start is in Selva di Val Gardena. Thanks to the Ciampinoi lifts, you save metres in altitude. From Ciampinoi, a path (attention: hiking trail, so please ride respectfully) leads to the Comici Hut. Take the meadow path to the right of the gravel road downhill to the Gran Paradiso chairlift, which takes you to the highest point of the famous Stone City (Città dei Sassi/Steinerne Stadt). Via the Stone City you reach the Sella Pass and after a short ascent you reach the regional border between Val Gardena and the Sella Pass. From here a great natural trail, named Rodelline, leads downhill toward Val di Fassa. First it runs flowing over the ski slope, then briefly left along the gravel road before the natural part begins on the right in the forest. There are two difficulty variants and both lead over roots, sticks and stones to Pian Frataces. From here continue along the Infinity Trail to Canazei. On the beautiful cycle path that connects the entire Val di Fassa, you cycle past the various traditional villages of the Val di Fassa to Predazzo. With the new Gardonè cable car and the following chairlift, you reach Passo Ferdo. Now it's a short ride on the ski slope and then on gravel roads and trails through forests and meadows to Obereggen. Of course, a detour to the beautiful Karersee lake is not to be missed; its beautiful turquoise-green colours make it well worth the trip. The route then descends to Welschnofen. Once again, thanks to a lift, metres in altitude are saved and then it's a leisurely ride along a forest road to the Karer Pass. From the pass there is only the asphalt road back to the Val di Fassa to Pozza. From Pozza we take the cycle path back down into the valley to Campitello and up on the Col Rodella cable car. Now the Icarus Trail and a short way back to the Sella Pass await us. The short section uphill to the top station of the Gran Paradiso chairlift is a must, because the subsequent Paravis and Family flow trails or, for the more daring, the Jump Line to Plan de Gralba, make this biking day perfect. From Plan de Gralba, the trail leads back to the starting point in Selva Gardena.
