Mountain bike holidays? Dolomites is the best choice.

The Lagorai is a mountain range in Trentino, from the geological point of view belongs to the Dolomites. From the point of view of tourism, the Lagorai chain is a very interesting area for those who are fond of hiking, of ski touring and especially of mountain biking. The term "Dolomiti Lagorai Bike" indicates an area particularly suited for mountain biking, which extends for more than 1100 kilometers. The most beautiful areas of the Lagorai, in which you can go mountain biking

are Val di Fiemme, Val di Fassa, Valsugana and San Martino di Castrozza.

Val di Fiemme offers the opportunity to visit many real natural paradises, as the Latemar Group and the Natural Park of Paneveggio Pale di S. Martino. The Dolomites bike path runs through the Val di Fiemme, allowing you to ride for about 50 miles, from Molina di Fiemme to Canazei.

Also Val di Fassa offers many possibilities for bicycle enthusiasts. The passable routes are numerous and varied, some more easy and accessible to all, and others more challenging for those who are endowed with a certain physical endurance.

A great variety of trails for mountain biking are also present in the beautiful Valsugana, the region in which the combination of environment and sport reaches its maximum expression. Again there is plenty of choice, ranging from a leisurely tour around Levico and Caldonazzo lake, more suitable for beginners, to the more difficult trip around mountain top Cima d’Asta, ideal for experienced bikers.

San Martino di Castrozza and the valleys of  Primiero and Vanoi, are real paradises for bikers, especially in the period between April and October. These areas are particularly rich in all the services that may be useful to bikers: bike shops, bike schools, hotels and facilities equipped for the bikers who choose to spend a mountain bike holiday in the Dolomites.
