Surrounded by the mountain ranges of the Sesvenna group as well as the Ötztal and Ortler Alps, the sunny Venosta Valley culture region in South Tyrol is an ideal destination for a varied holiday by touring bicycle
. From the apple orchards in the valley over the high plains around Resia Lake to the peaks of the Ortler mountain: with its challenging pass roads and panoramic routes, the scenic Venosta Valley region is made for true road cycling enthusiasts.
One of the ultimate challenges is the Stelvio Pass road
, which leads to one of the highest situated passes in the Alps. The panoramic pass road to the Stelvio Pass
(2,760 m) is also a famous stage of the Giro d'Italia – with 48 bends it is a real highlight for road cyclists. The challenging mountain bike path to Val Martello is no less popular, leading from Coldrano/Goldrain over 1,235 m uphill to Martello/Martell and back.
Road cyclists will find unique and leisurely routes through the valleys, such as the cycling route following the historic Via Claudia Augusta
and panoramic bicycle paths leading through wine and fruit gardens. Offerings such as the Train & Bike Ticket
also help turn holidays into a relaxing experience.
