Fourth day – From Nauders to Goldrain – 70 km, 1300 m elevation gain
Via the Plamort plain and Lake Reschen, and with the magnificent Ortler within view, we'll head for the warm Mediterranean Vinschgau. Here we'll enjoy the narrow Waalwege (irrigation paths) as we constantly discover new trails through the apple orchards on our way towards Goldrain.
Fifth day – From Goldrain to St. Walburg – 55 km, 1950 m elevation gain
Now it's about to get chilly. The ascent to the 1922 m high Naturnser Alm requires intense concentration. At the summit, the fantastic mountain world of the Ortler presents itself. On a tricky downhill, we'll ride over flowing trails down into the Ulten Valley towards St. Walburg.
Sixth day – From St. Walburg to Tuenno – 60 km, 1650 m elevation gain
Over varied forest paths, we will roll from St. Walburg to St. Gertraud and admire the ancient larch trees. After a steep climb and some pushing passages, we'll get to the almost 2500 m high Rabbijoch. With a bit of luck, we'll be able to get some roasted chamois with polenta at the Haslgruber hut. The downhill is one of the best in the Alps. On our way towards Tuenno, we'll enjoy every meter.
Seventh day – From Tuenno to Riva / Torbole – 80 km, 1250 m elevation gain
In the winter sports resort of Andalo, our route takes us through lush apple orchards. We'll ride along Lake Molveno with the gigantic backdrop of the Brenta Dolomites around us as we near our destination. One last trail will lead through the Marocche before we'll wash away the dust of the journey with a dip in Lake Garda. At the farewell dinner, we'll enjoy the best cuisine of Trentino.
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.
„The Uina Gorge is among the most spectacular things the Alps have to offer for mountain bikers. It's fantastic to be able to experience it. While we encounter many riders crossing the Alps in the other direction, pushing their bikes, we can, to a large extent, ride most of the trails and ravines. The Rabbijoch has also changed radically since 2011. On an incredible trail, we'll now surf downhill for 1000 meters of elevation. It's gigantic.“
