This panoramic tour of the Alpe di Siusi promises stunning mountain views without any great effort. The aerial cable way Ortisei - Alpe di Siusi that takes bikers from Ortisei to an altitude of almost 800 meters, makes this possible. The route on either well-built secondary roads or on gravel paths also contributes to making this troublefree for first-timers to mountain biking and for those less well trained. A few short sections of trail and cosy refreshment facilities, for example at the hut Baita Rauch, complete this easy tour.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the starting point in St. Christina you roll alongside rio Gardena at first nearly always only downhill as far as St. Ulrich. Here the Seiser Alm cable car with its round cabins that take two bikes and two bikers without any difficulty is already waiting for you. Just a few minutes later you reach the highest point of the tour at almost 2,000m above sea level. Already here at the mountain station you are in the midst of the most beautiful panorama of the Dolomite Mountains. The view of the Schlern, Rosszähne, Plattkofel and Langkofel mountains cast no doubts on the name given to this tour. An easy descent on gravel with a subsequent ride on tarmac ends at Gasthaus Icaro, the first stop for refreshments. Only a few kilometres further, now downhill again, the traditional and quaint Rauchhütte with its excellent cuisine is located on the left of the road to Saltria. Fully refreshed, you reach Saltria a few minutes later. There then comes the only climb of the tour worthy of mention on the gravel road leading to Monte Pana. With the Langkofel and Plattkofel mountains right under your nose these 170m of difference in altitude are also quickly completed. From now onwards the slope is almost only downhill. From Monte Pana to Ciaslat a few very beautiful trails feature some changes in riding technique in this otherwise very easy tour. You roll along via Wolkenstein and the cycle path on the former railway line to La Pozza, change over to the other side of rio Gardena and in this way reach the starting point of the tour in St. Christina.
