Mountain biking in the South Tyrolean Dolomites

In the summer heat, under a clear, bright blue sky, jet down a gravel path outside and let the cooling breeze blow into your face? Or get on your mountain bike on a fresh spring morning and cycle from village to village along a babbling mountain stream? If that sounds like a dream to you, it can become a reality in South Tyrol. For mountain bikers, the South Tyrolean Dolomites are the place to be, and for good reason: over 300 different tours can be tackled by mountain bike. The combination of green alpine meadows and the impressive, rugged mountain rocks of the Dolomites offer a backdrop that you can't experience anywhere else in this form. With the mountain bike you can discover the mountain world with a lot of fun and sport. 

Mountain bike regions in South Tyrol

Mountain biking is possible in almost every region of South Tyrol. Many places have extra mountain bike training parks, so that even beginners can first become more confident in handling the mountain bike and the ground conditions of the mountain world before a larger tour. After that it's free for the mountain bike tours in the Dolomites.

The route up to the famous Three Peaks is particularly well-known and popular. However, this route is not for beginners! The mountain bike route in the Three Peaks Dolomite Region takes you up to 4,000 metres in altitude - which requires quite a bit of fitness. Less challenging and more family-friendly are easy routes through the regions of Val Gardena and Alta Badia. Here, too, there are great mountain panoramas to marvel at and the mountain bike takes you up through valleys and gentle hills. Of course, there are also opportunities to try out more difficult mountain bike trails in these two regions. Especially in Alta Badia you will find exciting single trails that lead through forests and down towards the valley. The Alpe di Siusi, the largest high alpine pasture in Europe, is another region where many mountain bikers go. The reason for this, apart from the beautiful landscape, are the many bike hotels that are specially adapted to the needs of cyclists and mountain bikers in the South Tyrolean Dolomites. E-mountain bikes can be charged, there are usually repair offers and, of course, guests are offered a high level of relaxation so that you can get back on the bike saddle the next day freshly refreshed. Kronplatz is a particularly varied place for mountain bikers: the region offers scenic variations like hardly any other South Tyrolean region. There are coniferous forests to discover, wide highland plains and the typical, impressive jags of the Dolomites to see. The Eisacktal valley is known for offering mountain bike trails that are particularly close to nature. A mountain bike tour, especially close to the nature of the Dolomites, is unique. The Val d'Ega is enriched by its mountain lakes, which are beautifully clear and range from deep blue to almost turquoise. And what could be better than the idea of jumping into an ice-cold mountain lake for refreshment on a hot summer day after an extensive mountain bike tour?

By the way: As a mountain biker in South Tyrol, you don't just have to stick to the signposted mountain bike trails. Here you are allowed to experience wild mountain bike fun on every bike trail - of course with due consideration for all participants of the trails.
