The tour takes us on wide forest paths over the panoramic Malettesböden above Mals. On the fantastic trails down to Schluderns we get the opportunity to put our riding skills to the test.

The serpentine forest path from Mals climbs up the slope at a constant gradient. From the Malettesböden we enjoy a fantastic panoramic view over the Vinschgau Valley to the glacier mountains of the Ortler Group and the northern sides of the Ötztal peaks. With a view of the Ortler, we enjoy a gentle downhill ride to Muntetschinig. Finally, at the Chapel of the Holy Family, a partly challenging single trail begins, which leads us down towards Schluderns.
