Villandro has plenty to offer for mountain-bikers. Directly from the hotel, the tours lead through the Isarco Valley up to the alpine high-plateau of Villandro, one of the most beautiful and biggest alpine pastures in the region.
Demanding tours – from to the centre of Villandro up to the high plateau
The tours in Villandro are rather challenging and require some stamina on the part of the cyclist. It's only once you reach the high plateau of Villandro, the flat pasture with a wonderful panoramic view of the Dolomites, that it gets more comfortable. For warming up we recommend the tours to Bad Dreikirchen or to St. Anna. There are however, also plenty of adventurous tours in the Isarco Valley ("Alter Waalweg"!). The highlight is and remains the round tour up to Rittner Horn/Corno di Renon: the splendid 360° view of the imposing mountain world in South Tyrol and further on rewards every biker for the challenges he took to get there.
Comfortable tours on the high plateau
For pleasure cyclists we recommend taking the bus to high plateau with the mountain-bike, and enjoy a comfortable cycle tour on the high-alpine pasture. Cycle to traditional alpine huts and finally enjoy the downhill run to Villandro. A mountain-bike vacation in South Tyrol does not necessarily have to be strenuous.
With the bike through South Tyrol - the Isarco cycling track
The Isarco cycling track leads to Bolzano or Bressanone, Brunico or Merano without any major challenges. In order to avoid the ascent road to Villandro, our guests can take the bus or try the round tour via Ritten/Renon (see tour proposal "Bolzano & Renon"): The cable car from Bolzano to Renon also transport your mountain-bike.
