Third day – From Nauders to Goldrain – 70 km, 1300 m elevation gain
The Reschensee by itself isn't enough for us. Using the Plamort plain, we'll cross the main Alpine ridge and, with the magnificent Ortler in front of us, we'll ride down into the Mediterranean clime of the Vinschgau. Narrow forest paths and beautiful apple orchards are a delight on our way to Goldrain.
Fourth day – From Goldrain to Nals – 55 km, 850 m elevation gain
A cable car will assist us to aschbach high above Merano. We'll take a capital pasta break with a panoramic view. Fast descent to Lana, then we'll continue at a comfortable pace to our hotel. It features a panoramic pool and is situated in the middle of the Nals vineyards.
Fifth day – From Nals to Coredo – 61 km, 1780 (1000) m elevation gain
From the wine village of Girlan, an ascent over the art trail leads on to the emerald Montiggler Lakes. Over trails and narrow paths, we'll ride through vineyards to Kaltern and then up to the Mendel Pass. Then a sensational descent over wonderful trails to the monastery S. Romedio and its brown bears. A nice hotel awaits us in Coredo.
Sixth day – From Coredo to Fai della Paganella – 52 km, 1780 m elevation gain
On lonely cart tracks, we’ll ride steeply uphill. We'll be rewarded with a glorious view down into the wild Brenta Dolomites. With its vineyards and apple orchards, the Valle di Non has all sorts of treats requiring technical riding in store for us. In the evening, we'll relax in the hotel overlooking the Paganella mountain.
Seventh day – From Fai della Paganella to Riva / Torbole – 60 km, 1150 m elevation gain
We can still amp it up one more notch. The summits of the Paganella and the Monte Gazza want to be conquered today. We will be rewarded with an awe-inspiring descent down to Lake Garda. Farewell dinner.
Eighth day – Departure
After breakfast, the bikes are loaded onto the bus. Return trip by bus back to Landeck. Upon arrival, everyone travels home individually.
„On the second day, we will already conquer the main Alpine ridge. The view from the Plamort plain of the 3000 meter peaks of the Ortler Range is exhilarating. As an additional reward, nice lunch accommodations and often fine hotels beckon. It is vacation, after all. What I especially like about Trentino is the great mix of trails and unforgettable landscapes. The descent down to Lake Garda is pretty outrageous: 2000 meters elevation, all of it downhill!“
