This route is better enjoyed if ridden clockwise! The section through the Valle del Vanoi unfolds on nice secondary paved roads. A steep forest road leads the two huts of Fossernica with a short hike-a-bike section. The downhill to Caoria on an old mule track is steep and very slippery after rainfall. Food stops are the Rifugio Refavaie and the Fossernica di Fuori shepherd’s hut.


Here nature hasn’t lost its harmony; the Valle del Vanoi is the green heart of the Dolomites and is one of the few areas where flora and fauna remain essentially untouched. the wedge-shaped valley is surrounded by the Lagorai peaks. the highest peak, the cima d’Asta, is a huge granite block that reaches the awe-inspining elevation of 2847 m. this tour offers plenty of opportunity for quiet and solitary time.
