Turn-by-turn directions

Head off from Selva di Val Gardena and take the Ciampinoi cable car for a 2,200 m climb. Once you’ve reached the top, revel in the beautiful view across the Sassolungo to the north and Val Gardena to the south before setting of on the trails downhill. Bike past the Comici Hut, and take a detour to the Gran Paradiso lift, continuing towards Sasso Levante. Your destination will be Plan de Gralba: crossing the City of Stones on the nature trail to the Sella meadows and the flow experience on the easy Family Trail. From Plan de Gralba follow the ski slope and from the sports ground in Plan you can return to Selva di Val Gardena on the bike path.
