Mountain bikers take note. Great tour in Alta Pusteria - starting from San Candido by bike to the hiking and skiing area "Helm".

From the starting point, the route always follows a wide forest path, no. 4 or 4B, up to the Helm. Again and again, especially in the last third to the highest point, there are steeper sections to negotiate. The first place to stop for refreshments is the Jägerhütte (1820 m). From there up to the Helmrestaurant - keep to the right and continue along the forest path in an easterly direction. However, a detour to the Hahnspielhütte is also recommended - only about 10 - 15 min. away! Otherwise head downhill in the direction of the Lärchenhütte and further down to Sexten in the centre of the village. At the main road there, keep to the right and head out of the valley. From the main road, turn left into the Sonnwendweg and continue on the orographic left side of the valley on a forest path to the Klaus restaurant. Cross the road here and continue along a path on the orographic right until, after an uphill section, you rejoin the forest path that you already know from the outward journey.
