Breathtaking guided panoramic tour on mountain bike around the Sella Group in the Dolomites, UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.
Until recently, the imposing Sella Massif represented an impregnable fortress for lovers of mountain biking. Thanks to the transport of bikes on the ski lifts, you can easily access the slopes of the Dolomite Passes of Gardena, Campolongo, Pordoi and Sella. In one day you can go around the Sella massif either clockwise or anti-clockwise. Accompanied by experienced and professional guides the tour starts from S. Cassiano to then reach Corvara, where you will join the trail. The quite technical descents occur mostly on single trails and only partly follow the road.
