Discovering Trentino with the gravel bike

Riding a gravel bike is an experience that changes the way you look at cycling and the sites you pass through

Large pastures, woods, foamy streams, nature parks, huts, farms, lakes and valleys through climbs and descents of passes exposed to bright Dolomite sunsets.

The Trentino of a geophysical map becomes infinite only by entering it. A great biodiversity reserve and panoramas that cannot fit all together in a single glance. If you love walking, you know well that a slow pace allows you to look beyond the patina of things because it allows you to feel. You know it even better, if your eyes travel on a gravel bike, the one that makes you free to go anywhere at your own pace. In Trentino, you can cycle for days and change scenery, from mountain to valley, from lakes to waterfalls, from chamois to pedal boats, in a single itinerary.

Here, with your gravel bike, your adventurous and heroic off-road travel companion, you just have to get on the saddle and try to explore kilometre after kilometre every road you feel you want to try. We recommend these itineraries, particularly suited to your bike, with the hope that they are only the beginning of a great adventure.

Have a good trip!

#1

Giro del vino 50 Rotaliana Wine Tour

An equipped 50-km long loop itinerary in Piana Rotaliana, a tidy expanse of vineyards through hills, villages and rocks around river Adige, between Trento and Bolzano. An experience to enjoy in complete tranquility, with nice breaks in the cellars or in the recommended farmhouses, where you can delight in local delicacies.

#2

DoGa

A total of 110 km that in separate stages allow you to cross four Trentino valleys for a complete panoramic tour from the Brenta Dolomites to Lake Garda. Waterfalls, apple orchards, villages, castles, canyons and a Nature Park. A biosphere that is too rich to be described in words. Start pedalling!

#3

Val Venegia – Baita Segantini Hut

Are you ready to conquer the Pale di San Martino? A valley of glacial and wild origin within the Paneveggio Pale di San Martino Park that will take you gently to the top to admire the most famous peaks of the Dolomites. Woods, streams and a botanical garden with over 500 species.

#4

Tour of the Vanoi Huts

Loop trail with challenging climbs and relaxation in the end, which will take you in front of the Lagorai in a green and wild valley crossed by the Vanoi stream. For 25 km you will be in a piece of the heart of the Paneveggio - Pale di San Martino Nature Park, in a wildlife and wooded environment that has remained virtually pristine thanks to its natural isolation.

#5

San Pellegrino Pass

There are so many itineraries that you can take in Val di Fassa, from the bottom of the valley to the high mountains. You will be able to cross a forest road to reach the Fuciade basin with its homonymous mountain hut, through woods and traces of the First World War. A truly panoramic loop route at high altitude that will fill your eyes with heaven.

#6

Tour of the Forts - Val di Sole

A 40-km loop trail that starts at high altitude, from the village of Ossana to reach the Tonale Pass. An itinerary that delves into WWI history through the Alpine valleys of Strino, Verniana and Saviana and a spectacular view of the Presanella glacier.

#7

Alpe Cimbra Tour

This path is very exciting, but also long and technical. Therefore, it is good to have a well-trained leg, because from the lower valley of the Centa you go up the Alpe, via Strada del “Menador”, a daring and panoramic climb, which was also traversed by Giro d’Italia on 25 May 2022.
