The Furcia Pass Tour is an interesting alternative way of exploring South Tyrol by heading north from Alta Badia. This stretch has formed part of the famous Giro d'Italia several times and is perfect for training on.

Route: From Pederoa head north on the main road 244 down to Piccolino and Longega. Here you turn off to the right and ride gently uphill on the main road as far as San Vigilio and then on a flat road to Marebbe. Just before the centre of Marebbe head for the Furcia Pass, first climbing gently and then with gradients of 10 % or even 15 %. The road to the Furcia Pass is narrow and has some sharp bends. When you reach the pass (1,758 m), the road winds down again to Valdaora di Sotto. Then you continue gently up and down around the Plan de Corones until you come to Riscone and San Stefano. From here, the gradient is slight to moderate as far as Pliscia. You then head down to Longega, from where you return to Pederoa on the 244 road.
