Experience the freedom of biking
Mountainbike and downhill biking – no limits at the Kronplatz
The Pusteria Valley and especially the area of the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones promise a host of thrilling adventures for mountainbikers. The vicinity of Olang / Valdaora has developed into a veritable Eldorado for bike enthusiasts. Do you like easy bicycle rides, or are you an ambitious mountainbiker or downhill racer? In any case, you’ll find the right kinds of paths and courses here. The total length of trails belonging to this network has steadily grown in recent years, and there are plenty of connections so you can switch from one path to another. The Famelí Bike Shuttle will conveniently bring you and your bicycle to the various different starting-points for a variety of tours.
Of course, we can also arrange to pick you up after your tour and bring you back to our active vacationing hotel.
The Kronplatz / Plan de Corones is an absolute highlight for mountainbikers. Here you’ll find South Tyrol’s first official downhill trail: The Herrnsteig. This challenging course was inaugurated in 2010, is entirely prohibited for pedestrians, and open from June till mid-October. You can ascend to the facility by taking the Kronplatz 2000 gondola-type cableway in Reischach / Riscone. But there’s an easier way: In recent years, the Furcia Trail, Piz de Plaies Trail, and the Gassl Freeride Trail were added. They are open from July till September. You can also reserve tours and the necessary equipment at the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones. The best place to go for that is the Kronplatz Outdoor Center.
Of course, Katja and Wolfi Gasser – both enthusiastic bikers – would be delighted to give you helpful hints for the best tours in the Pusteria Valley, like the light Innichen / San Candido – Lienz route, more-challenging route to the Angerle Alm, or the athletically demanding roundtrip around the Kronplatz / Plan de Corones. And here’s another recommendation: There are trains on which you can transport your bike leaving from Olang / Valdaora every 30 minutes.
The train stop is only 500 meters from the Famelí vitality hotel.
