With more than 1,000 kilometres of trails to ride, Val Gardena mountain biking holidays in the Dolomites offer world-class riding. Discover 30+ well-signposted MTB trails for all ability levels, located between 700 and 2,450 metres in Italy’s incredible Dolomite Mountains.
Val Gardena mountain biking holidays
Tackle the miles of well maintained single track, with challenging ups and exhilarating downs. Of course ski lifts are on hand if you want to take the easy option to the top, and there are dedicated cross country, enduro, downhill and freeride MTB trails to enjoy.
For those of you with previous MTB experience you can tackle the world-famous Sella Ronda ski circuit, which opens for mountain biking in the summer.
Each year, they host the Hero Bike Festival here, one of the world’s most difficult MTB Marathons. Taking on some of the toughest peaks in the Dolomites, this gruelling challenge highlights why Val Gardena mountain biking holidays are so good.
As well as the Sella Ronda, you can also ride the Sassolungo, Sassopiatto, Alpe di Siusi, Marmolada and many more. Tough ascents are rewarded with majestic panoramic views of one of the most beautiful mountain regions in the world.
It’s fun, exciting and challenging riding for serious MTBers – although there are plenty of easier challenges for beginners on Val Gardena mountain biking holidays.
