This tour is extremely demanding in terms of physical condition, but all the more rewarding for it in terms of scenery, with a breathtaking panorama of the Dolomites, and runs along a popular Transalp route for long stretches. There are hardly any technical challenges, apart from a pushing section.

The long and steep climbs on partly gravelled paths to the Limojoch and the Forcella da Cians are exhausting. Once at the top, we are offered impressive views of the Fanes plateau (from the Limojoch) and Wengen's local mountains Neuner and Zehner (from the Forcella da Cians), which reward us for the efforts of the ascent. Between the Tadegajoch and the Col de Locia we enjoy a very nice, flowing trail. After the Col, however, a very demanding, sometimes even unrideable single trail awaits us, before the route continues flowing again on forest paths down into the valley from the Capanna Alpina. The rest of the tour is mainly on asphalt or gravel paths.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the valley station of the Piz de Plaies cable car, we take an asphalt path through the Rautal valley to the Pederü Hut and continue on partly rough gravelled and at the end steep paths through the Fanes valley, past the Fanes Hut, to the Limojoch (2172 m). From here, the trail descends to the Große Fanesalm and climbs slightly again to the Tadegajoch. A flowing trail now leads us over to the Col de Locia. Here follows a short pushing section before the trail continues on a single trail towards Capanna Alpina, which is still very demanding. Only towards the end does the trail become smooth again. At the Capanna Alpina car park, we turn onto trail no. 11, which leads us along the Valparola pass road to St. Kassian. Here we go through the village and at the end of the village we join the Valparola pass road. Follow this until a road branches off in the direction of Sottrù/Oies. Passing the hamlets of Valgiarei, Arciara and Furnacia, we ride above the Val Badia to Wengen (1353 m). For the most part on gravel roads, we now take trail no. 5 up to Forcella da Cians (1832 m). The long descent that follows brings us back to San Vigilio di Marebbe on well-maintained forest roads.

Restaurants are available at the Fanes Hut, the Große Fanesalm, the Capanna Alpina and in the towns of San Cassiano and Wengen.
