Circumnavigation of the Schlern and Rosengarten massifs with breathtaking views of the Dolomites and the regions of Seiser Alm/Alpe di Siusi, Val d'Ega/Eggental and Val di Fassa. An 80 km long, moderately difficult tour that is just as doable with a normal MTB as with an e-bike.

ATTENTION: path [519] partially closed. Detour from Moena via [519A] to Tal Crist and then along path [519] to Passo Costalunga/Karerpass.

Directions

From Seis am Schlern you take the Seiser Alm cable car directly to Compatsch on the Seiser Alm. First, the tour leads on the road in the direction of Panorama, past the Edlweiß and Almrosen hut and the Mahlknecht refuge to the Mahlknechtjoch (Passo Duron). Now the pleasant part begins. Across the wide Duron valley with its many huts, the route runs downhill for about 10.5 km until Campitello di Fassa. Always along the Avisio River, the trail goes on flat stretches through the Fassa Valley to Moena. The route is surrounded by woods and meadows that offer a beautiful view of the peaks of the Latemar and the Catinaccio.

Now the strenuous part of the tour begins. On a 9 km stretch you have to overcome 600 m of altitude difference up to the Karer Pass (Passo di Costalunga). From there it goes relatively flat below the Rosengarten massif to the Niger Pass (Passo Nigra) and then downhill to the mountain village of Tiers am Rosengarten. If you want to save yourself the descent, you can also take the new cabrio cable car from the Frommeralm to St. Zyprian. The next section leads 10km along the main road to Prösels, where the impressive Prösels Castle is located and can also be visited. The route finally leads to Völs am Schlern and Seis am Schlern back to the starting point without any notable differences in altitude.
