A demanding tour to Europe's highest place of pilgrimage. With a power-sapping climb and technically difficult descent, the tour is rich with variety.

The tour «Heaven's Door» is by anyone standards a challenge and diverse. The start is the car park for the cable car Savognin. From here the route passes by Dorf Riom and Burg Rezia Ampla and onto Tigignas. The castle provides the setting for the annual Origen Cultural Festival in the Raeto-Romansch language. From there the route takes a steep incline forest road and then a single track to Ziteil, the highest place of pilgrimage in Europe at 2433 metres. A visit to the church is well-worth it. The giant church window affords an exceptional panorama over the Surses. The downhill is pure joy for any biker who has no fear of demanding single trails. The way leads through the mountain huts of Munter to Salouf a great place to rest and enjoy the restaurant terrace. Then the last stretch leads back to Savognin.

Wunderschöne Tour! Allerdings: Der Text mit der Tourenbeschreibung stimmt nicht ganz mit der ausgeschilderten Route (und der hier abgebildeten Karte) überein: Man fährt über Salouf hoch, alles auf einer Asphaltstrasse, bis Munter, dann unbefestigte Strasse/Weg bis Zitail. Runter auf grossartigen Singletrails via Cre digl Lai und Tigignas, zurück nach Savognin.
