A breathtaking scenic tour through the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park, which is relatively easy in terms of riding technique, but all the more demanding in terms of fitness.
Distance 39.2 km
Highest point2,327 m
Lowest point1,347 m
The long and steep climbs to the Limojoch and especially to the Seekofelhütte require excellent physical condition and a lot of strength in the legs. The fact that the paths are often roughly gravelled and almost scree makes things even more strenuous. As arduous as the climbs are, however, the landscape is also impressive. The tour leads past impressive, mighty rock faces and deep blue mountain lakes, for which it is absolutely worth taking a break now and then. The descents are mostly on gravel, but should not be underestimated due to their steepness and sometimes loose ground

From the Pederü hut (1548 m) we go uphill on a wide gravel path to the Fanes hut (2060 m) and continue, steeply towards the end, to the Limojoch (2172 m). Here the descent through the Fanes valley begins. Soon after the Limo lake we turn onto a short, beautiful trail and then descend on a steep gravel road past the Fanes lakes. In the valley, we briefly head north on the road (to the south, the road leads to Cortina d'Ampezzo), before a gravel path that is steep at the end begins to the Ra-Stua hut. From there, the trail continues steeply uphill towards the Senna Hut. Shortly before reaching the hut we turn off and reach the Seekofelhütte (2327 m) on a now flatter ascending path. Here, at the latest, we have really earned a stop for refreshments. We return along the same path to the junction we came to before from the Ra-Stua hut. From here we continue to the Senna Hut and down to the Fodara Vedla Hut. After a very last short climb, we go downhill on a partly extremely steep gravel path back to the Pederü hut.
Restaurants are available at the Faneshütte, the Ra-Stua-Hütte, the Seekofelhütte, the Senneshütte and the Fodara Vedla Hütte.
