Flowing, technically challenging single trails ensure absolute riding fun on this tour.

This tour begins with a long, sun-exposed and steep asphalt ascent from Kastelbell-Tschars to St. Martin im Kofel. However, the magnificent views of the Etschtal valley and the Ortler group quickly make us forget the effort. Those who prefer to save their energy for the downhill can alternatively take the mountain railway from Latsch to St. Marin im Kofel. From there, a super freeride descent leads back down to the valley on single trails, freeride tracks, old cart tracks and panoramic paths. There are numerous places to stop for refreshments during the tour.
