PANORAMA TOUR ALPE DI SIUSI

Start from Active & Events Office – Selva, Nives Square

Biking in a great natural landscape

The HERO is much more than a single race and as proof of such in the days leading up to the main race we are offering both race participants and their family and friends the chance to explore and discover parts of the Dolomites (a UNESCO World Heritage) – on two wheels naturally enough. Our mountain bike guides will accompany you along spectacular routes with breathtaking views – and without too much effort -, as for example the tour of Alpe di Siusi.

Thanks to the cablecar from Ortisei we can save ourselves 800 metres of elevation gain, and arrive direct up at Europe’s largest plateau area. Once up we can bike along paths and tracks perfectly marked and ready to welcome both leisurely orientated bikers and also the Hero bikers looking to have a light training run in preparation for the big day to follow. There is a lot of scope to stop off, relax and have a snack along the way and the route really is an ideal one for the holiday excursionist.
