The winter season is almost here followed by holidays in a lodge, torchlight processions and snowshoeing in the moonlight and mountain huts and lodges covered in a thick blanket of snow.
Be honest: In a few weeks you are already thinking about putting your bike in the garage in anticipation of spring. But do not fear, our cycling experiences in the sprinkling snow have almost a special fairytale charm.
We have chosen 4 destinations that will make you want to venture out with your Mountain Bike.
Tyrol And South Tyrol
The territory of South Tyrol is made up of ascents and descents, wherever you decide to ride. From the hills to high mountains, forests to steep and narrow Mule tracks. In the surrounding areas of Racines, Selva, Badia or Bressanone, there are numerous trails designed for fat bike and mountain bike lovers. The choice is limited to two options: your decision and your physical fitness.
The high mountain landscape of Bormio immersed in the Selvio National Park is a perfect combination for an unforgettable cycling experience either with a mountain bike, fat bike or road bike. In winter, the high mountain passes are closed to traffic, so all you have to do is get on your bike. If you want to push yourself further, you can ride a fat bike in complete tranquillity, but above all, feel safe on trails which a normal mtb would not be able to reach. The territory is vast and so are the possibilities to ride on snow from Val Viola Valdidentro to Forni in Valfurva.
In winter you can also have fun on the Paganella plateau, on Madonna di Campiglio, on Val di Sole, on Monte Bondone, in Brentonico, in Valsugana and in Val di Fassa, or in Val Gardena. Here in the Dolomites, you are spoilt for choice. And at the end of the excursions, you will be waited on for dinner and a toast in a mountain hut.
We cannot miss Livigno out when it comes to venturing out in the snow, the little Italian Tibet always caters for those who love cycling. The Livigno bike guides also organise excursions during the winter season and sometimes at night in Val Federia. Are you ready to try a new experience?
