Cycling and Mountain Biking in the Venosta Valley
Venosta Valley is long and varied and therefore ideal for exploring by bicycle. The tours along the bottom of the valley are optimal for moderate-level cyclists and families. More ambitious cyclists can find challenging destinations for racing and mountain biking on the pass-roads and along the mountainsides.
Cycling holidays in South Tyrol – mountain bikers, downhill cyclists, freeriders, enduro cyclists and all-mountain cyclists will find an extensive network of more than 80 well-marked trails in Venosta Valley. Some of the Single Trails are ideal for beginners, while others are more suitable for passionate, experienced high-altitude mountain bikers.
Venosta Valley has many sunny days due to its dry climate, and mountain biking is therefore possible from mid-March until the end of November. The winding trails lead through the forests and mountains and offer spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and high peaks. Along the way there are many places to stop for traditional local food.
Panoramic bike paths lead comfortably through the valley and offerings such as the Train & Bike ticket are ideal for cyclists and families on bicycle trips throughout South Tyrol. The ultimate challenges for a biking holiday in the Venosta Valley are steep slopes and roads such as the Stelvio Pass road, with its 48 bends. The Giro d'Italia stage leading up to the 2,760 m high Stelvio Pass is a highlight for every cyclist and a must for any biking holiday in South Tyrol.
