The three villages of the Gardena Valley

The tour begins directly from the hotel. We go to Selva and by the hotel Oswald we turn left. The route out of the valley mainly follows the left bank of the Gardena River It begins on beautiful woodland and meadow paths directly along the brook and later between Santa Christina and Ortisei on tarmac secondary roads with hardly any traffic. In this way you arrive at the promenade in Ortisei with almost no increase in altitude difference.

At the valley station of the Alp of Siusi cable car you turn right, cross the main road via the pedestrian bridge and reach the centre of the village. From now on it is only uphill. Altogether, it is a good 450 meters difference in altitude to Selva, but the incline is very moderate and makes for a fantastic ride. Shortly before Santa Christina you come across La Poza, a small village behind Santa Christina, on the section you already know from the way there and that you now take in the opposite direction. The route changes there again to the other side of the valley and follows the old, abandoned railway line that has been converted to a cycle path, back to Selva.

Distance: ca. 18 km
