Don’t get too comfortable when reading the technical data, this tour requires a high level of physical fitness and preparation, and good riding skills after all. In summer a stop at the Rifugio Lagazzon is a nice add-on for this tour.

Directions

Villages in the Dolomites are characterised by a very unique charm. Falcade counts just over 2000 inhabitants and belongs to the province of Belluno, in the Biòis, the heart of the Dolomites, between the Marmolada and the Pale di San Martino and underneath Passo di San Pellegrino. Those who are after a few moments of peaceful solitude will find it on this tour. This route passes many mountain villages at the base of the cime d’Auta. The destination of this tour is the picturesque cappella Jore (chapel), at 1456 m of elevation. the locals meet here for mass once a year. on a clear day the view spans from Monte Agner to Monte civetta, reaching to the Pale di S. Martino.
