838 - Tour dei Forti
Spectacular route among the Austro-Hungarian fortresses of the Alpe di Folgaria. Challenging, it requires good training in the first section, from Folgaria to Fort Dosso delle Somme. After that it runs along the ridges and back to Folgaria with mostly downhill stretches. It is a succession of panoramas, suggestions of history, climbs and descents.
This is not the tour for those who feel 'strong', but a wide mtb tour among the forts of the Great War. And it's no joke, there's pedalling, there's sweating, there's climbing, but it's worth it. If you are not so well trained, we recommend the E-bike. The view from Forte Dosso delle Somme over the Pasubio massif, the deep Val di Terragnolo and the Brenta Dolomites is priceless. So is the panorama from Forte Sommo alto, over Folgaria and the Val Orsara. A long, scenic tour that deserves well-deserved gastronomic stops: at the Rifugio Baita Tonda, the Osteria Coe, the La Stua restaurant or the Rifugio Stella d'Italia, you'll be spoilt for choice!
