Mountain biking in the Eggental valley

Bike Holidays in the Dolomites, South Tyrol

The Eggental valley offers, along with its many other attractions and an almost Mediterranean climate, ideal conditions for a relaxing mountain biking holiday. Enthusiasts of this sport will feel at home against the fantastic backdrop of Latemar Rosengarten, Schlern and Langkofel in the Dolomites, with routes that the whole family, children included, can come and enjoy.

The Eggental valley midst of the Dolomites acquired fame in mountain biking circles when Raimund Weissensteiner (Heitschi) made his record-breaking speed run of 124.13 km/h there. This successful record attempt enjoyed Europe-wide fame thanks to its inclusion in the “Wetten Dass” TV programme, which showed Heitschi racing his bike down a ski slope against a world champion downhill skier. At lower altitudes, the mountain-biking season begins at the start of April, while higher-altitude paths are open by the end of May. Forest roads and paths run from altitudes of 300 metres / 980 feet up to 2,200 metres / 7,200 feet.

Demanding bikers will find endless single-track trails with exciting downhill stretches and tricky trial sections. Mountain bikes can be hired at our hotel. We will be pleased to provide you with useful tips and interesting route suggestions!
