The tour into the Vallunga is the ideal introductory tour for first-time mountain bikers or for families. It is toned-down because the tour goes not go into the upper Vallunga, but only just as far as the mouth of the valley.

Turn-by-turn directions

The route follows side roads with little traffic and easy gravel and woodland trails. From the start at the tourism association in Selva Val Gardena you go first of all to the valley station of Dantercepies. The route leads from there more downhill than uphill, until, at the mouth of the valley, you reach the car park with refreshment facilities. The route only takes you about 1 km and a good 50 m in altitude difference into the Vallunga. Bikers, who find that this is not enough, can extend the tour by following the cross-country ski route further uphill. It does not finish until the beginning of Pra da Ri. The way back takes you first of all to the car park again and then on the narrow access road down to the Vallunga and the cycle path west of Selva Val Gardena.

Variations
1. Extension as far as Pra da Ri: Whoever would like to go further and higher, does not go back at the turning point of the tour in the lower Langental (waymarker 14), but follows the cross-country ski run further uphill as far as the Pra da Ri mountain pasture. There you can have a good rest. Return the same way, then continue the tour at waymarker 14 (+ 9.4km, +280m difference in altitude).

2. Combining with the Gardena valley tour: The tour into the Langental can be combined perfectly with the Gardena valley tour. The best way is to take the Gardena valley tour first of all as far as waymarker 61. Bear left there and follow the road for a short distance. At the next traffic roundabout go left and from there follow the road into the Langental. Join the tour described here at waymarker 23 and follow it in the opposite direction as far as waymarker 1 at the tourism association in Wolkenstein.

Getting there

Getting there
Take Brenner motorway A22, coming from the north via Innsbruck-Brenner, or from the south via Verona-Bozen.
The best motorway exit is Klausen/Gröden. From there in about 20 minutes you can reach St Ulrich and a few kilometres further on St. Christina and Wolkenstein on a clearly signposted mountain road.

Starting point
The tourism association is located on the left about 500 m after you enter the village of Wolkenstein.
Parking is available at the the beginning of the village centre of Wolkenstein. Turn left before Nives Platz and then immediately left again into the Nives car park.
The tour begins at the tourism association Wolkenstein.
