Turn-by-turn directions

Head off from Selva di Val Gardena towards the Passo Sella on the bike path for what is a long and extensive MTB circuit. From Plan onwards, the terrain becomes steeper and steeper, following an easy woodland path via Plan de Gralba to the Mountain Resort on the Passo Sella. Cycle past the City of Stones, across the highest point of the tour, just under the Gran Paradiso mountain station; here, the Comici Hut beckons you to stop for a rest (small repair box and e-bike docking station available). The mountain descent features small steep tracks, meadows, and woodland paths. Cycle by the commune of La Selva and continue on the main road to return to Selva di Val Gardena.
