Exciting tour that allows you to cross one of the most evocative valleys of Valsugana: the Val di Sella, known above all for the modern art exhibition of Arte Sella. The route starts from the town of Borgo Valsugana and climbs up a road between the landscapes of the Armentera cliffs and the beech, larch and fir woods, which in Spring and Summer create a magical green atmosphere and in Autumn turn into thousend shades of yellow, orange and red. At the top you should not miss a visit to Arte Sella and a stop in the restaurants of the area for a snack or a lunch with typical products and traditional dishes of Valsugana.

The extra idea: reach the starting point by cycling on the beautiful Valsugana cycle path, or by train with thespecial train + bike service (6 bike- places in low season, 32 in July and August)

Safety information

Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

Always wear your helmet.

Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.

If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.

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.
