EXPLORING THE CYCLE PATH OF VAL DI SOLE
Val di Sole is renowned as the land of bikers, indeed for several years during the summer season, at the side of Monroc Hotel you enjoy exciting races, performances and a lot of adrenaline. This year from the 6th to the 8th of July 2018 it will take place the MTB World Cup with Downhill, Cross Country and Four Cross competitions. Fun is guaranteed!
These paths characterized by breathtaking downhills in the middle of the woods, are undoubtedly not suitable for everybody, for this reason we want to suggest you an easier path, which is still fascinating and will make you discover beautiful landscapes and the hidden wonders of Val di Sole.
Just a few steps from Monroc you can find the cycle path of Val di Sole, which is 35 km long and runs along the Noce River and the small villages of our valley, from Mostizzolo to Cogolo di Pejo at the gates of the Stelvio National Park.
By riding your bike along the cycle path, besides enjoying breathtaking landscapes, between green trees, fields and flowers, you can make some deviations and visit interesting places. We give you some tips.
In Caldes, you can visit the CASTEL CALDES, which is a medieval castle that after a restoration has returned to its initial splendor, with vaulted ceilings, wooden coating and painted stairs. Today it hosts several expositions, exhibitions and cultural events.
In the village of Croviana is located the MMape – MULINO MUSEO DELL’APE, which is a small museum that is dedicated to the world of bees and honey. You can learn about their work, their habits and the products, which come from the beehive. To end with a sweet note, you can taste the honey produced by the local beekeepers. The entrance is free for the owners of Trentino Guest Card.
Instead, in the village of Ossana you can find the SAN MICHELE CASTLE, which is an ancient medieval castle built on a crag that overlooks the village. Here during the summer, as in Caldes Castle, take place several cultural events.
If during your bike ride you want to take a break or have a picnic, you can stop in “Le Contre” locality, nearby the village of Caldes, where is situated a bar, a playground for the little ones and a big field on the banks of the Noce River where you can relax.
Whereas in the village of Pellizzano there is the Bici Grill Bar, just on the side of the cycle path, where also here you can rest and take a look at the surrounding mountains.
If you do not want to ride back your bike, there is no problem! Load your bikes on the Dolomiti Express train or the Bicibus (bike bus) so your return will be more comfortable. The train and the bus together with the bike transport are free for the owners of Trentino Guest Card.
