If you want to enjoy the sunny side of Selva and S. Cristina to the full, you should not miss this tour. There are rarely so many facets to a tour: the Via Crucis from the Vallunga to Daunëi, the gravel path to the Juac Hut with its wonderful panorama, the gravel road that leads to the Regensburger Hut accompanied by the imposing rock faces of the surrounding Dolomites, the wonderful view from Col Raiser and Seceda. The descent on gravel roads from Seceda towards S. Cristina should not be underestimated on this tour, as they demand a lot of driving skills and strength.
Track typesShow elevation profile
The first 5 km are a bike path set in an urban environment between Santa Cristina and Selva di Val Gardena, bringing bikers right up to the entrance of the Vallunga. Turn onto a path below the ruins of Wolkenstein castle towards the Juac Hut. The path leading to the highest point of the tour, at 2,120 m, is speckled with mesmerising ponds and clearings - time waits for no man, but there’s no harm in stopping for a break at the Firenze or Odles Hut along the way. Just a stone’s throw away lies an alternative route to the Seceda; if not, stick to the woodland path coasting the oldest church in Val Gardena, the San Giacomo Church, and head back to Selva di Val Gardena
By roadThe tour starts at the town hall square in S. Cristina.
