Felixer Weiher, the lake situated on the bilingual border between South Tyrol and Trentino, is a popular destination among hikers and mountain bike lovers, offering many beautiful spots that are ideal for relaxing and contemplating nature.
The route, which is just under 20 kilometres long and about 700 m above Fondo, is described as a gentle hike and the 1413 Tour, from the official list of MTB-Routes– of Val di Non, takes you to the idyllic Felixer Weiher (Lake Tret) on the slopes of Gantkofel. When climbing to the summit of the Gampen Pass along the tracks of the old mountain pass, through forests of thin larches, you can get your adrenaline fix and then rest on the crystal clear shores of the mountain lake. The return takes you along narrow, partly overgrown trails along the east side of the Dos de Solomp. However, those who wish to avoid challenging routes and are short on stamina, can equally enjoy riding along a nice, rugged route through the forest of the Malga di Fondo.
At Felixer Weiher you can choose where to take a break: you can either enjoy a snack directly on the lake shores or treat yourself to an excellent pastry or cake or a delicious meal in one of the mountain huts (The Felixer Alm and the Gasthof Waldruhe).
The wide track leading to the lake is used frequently. Please consider walkers and hikers, and children in particular, taking care when you get off your bike.
Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
This tour can be undertaken with any type of MTB – although a hard tail bike is preferable. For the ride to the Dos de Solomp you must have previous experience of single tracks.
Il tour può essere percorso con qualsiasi tipo di mtb: una front è più che sufficiente. Per quanto riguarda i sentieri nella zona del Dos de Solomp è necessario avere esperienza di passaggi su singl trails.
