The cycling path crosses the Fiemme and Fassa valleys, following the same route as the Marcialonga.

This is the kingdom of snow which, in summer, makes way for green meadows and Dolomite rocks. The backdrop is provided by the majestic Latemar and Catinaccio Dolomites. The cycling path of the Fiemme and Fassa valleys winds over a distance of over 40 km among the woods and dense forests of fir and beech. The route mainly follows the track of the Marcialonga and the route of the ancient Ora - Predazzo railway.

Turn-by-turn directions

Leaving behind you the majestic peaks of the Dolomites, at the bottom of the Val di Fassa, you can take the cycle trail that skirts beautiful villages along the valley floor ‒ featuring lovely bell towers  ‒ and travel through lush green pastures and woods that surround them: Fontanzazzo, Mazzin and Vigo (of Sen Jan di Fassa), which was recently awarded the title of one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. 

Not to mention the larch and fir woods which, despite the devastating Vaia storm at the end of 2018, blanket the slopes of the mountains and have an essential role in preserving the environment. 

Crossing these valleys on the cycle path that links them together and, for the most part, runs along the Avisio river that rises right on the Marmolada ‒ the Snow Queen ‒ you can admire the jagged Dolomite peaks, first of the Catinaccio and then of the Latemar mountain ranges, or places which have made history in the sporting world, like the ski centre featuring ski jumps near Predazzo and the Centro di Fondo del Lago di Tesero (cross-country skiing centre), which hosted the Nordic Skiing World Championships in 1991, 2003 and 2013.

Finally, near Cavalese, in the small village of Cascata, don’t miss the 25-metre high waterfall that creates a truly magical atmosphere. 

Taking the route from Val di Fassa towards Valle di Fiemme allows you to avoid cycling up steep gradients, however, be careful when you ride downhill. For your return trip, look at this page to book the shuttle bus service.

Along the route there are some refreshment points like the Moena and Predazzo “bicigrills”.
