On this mountain bike tour we master two steep climbs and reach beautifully situated vantage points. Numerous alpine huts offer us the opportunity to stop and take a long rest.

From the starting point in Fiè allo Sciliar we first cycle in the direction of St. Constantine. Then we cycle steadily uphill in the direction of Tuffalm. On the way we pass the Völser Weiher and the Huber Weiher. At the hut we have the opportunity to stop and taste Tyrolean dishes. With numerous attractions, e.g. a playground and a petting zoo, there is also plenty on offer for children.

Then we cycle downhill for a short distance before we tackle the next climb to the highest point of the tour. This section pushes even the well-trained bikers among us to their limits.

We then ride downhill and a little later reach the Hoferalpl at an altitude of 1,364 metres. In the middle of the Schlern-Rosengarten Nature Park, we have a view that on fine days reaches as far as the Texelgruppe in the Ötztal Alps. At this point we can take the next break and linger over the magnificent Dolomite panorama. Then we continue our tour downhill towards Ums.

Now the next ascent awaits us, which becomes increasingly steeper shortly before the end and makes us sweat quite a bit. At the Tschafonleger we catch sight of the Hammerwand and the Tschafon.

On the following descent we pass the Schönblick inn, where we find the next opportunity to stop for refreshments.

As the loop continues, we reach the Schnaggenkreuz, where we have a beautiful view of the 2563 m high Schlern.

Finally we cycle via Ums back to our starting point in Fiè allo Sciliar.
