Mountainbiking in the Dolomites

The Schlern/Sciliar area offers you a plethora of great bicycle routes of all levels of difficulty (from "easy" to "challenging"). The bicycle tours along the Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi – Europe's largest high-altitude plateau – are probably the most fascinating. Here, you can pedal among the pinnacles of the Dolomites and admire the majestic Langkofel/Sasso Lungo and Plattkofel/Sasso Piatto, as well as the Schlern/Sciliar. What could be more wonderful than to vacation in this virtually pristine natural landscape? A holiday in the Dolomites is an unforgettable experience – verdant meadows, the scent of wildflowers, rustic Alpine lodges, all against the marvelous backdrop of the mountains.
