  • Everybody talks about it. VA tried to then be able to write back. Magnificent scenery, silence, fragrance and sounds of nature. The Drava flows beside a bubbling and you feel alive and full of energy. Makes you want to sing ... I can't wait to go again!!

  • the bicycle route (also accessible on foot if fit, given the 40 km) of great beauty, surrounded by the wonderful mountains of the Austrian border. The first the sunny side, the second in the shadow of the Woods. path maintained and improving all along the rivulet/Brook Drava which is accomplished without much effort, in fact in the 45 km (from san candido to lienz) the gap is 500 mt. about and makes the path almost perpetually slightly downhill: easy and suitable for young children. highly recommended.

  • We did the trail in the stretch from San Candido to Lienz with the whole family and even though the date was an unforgettable tour. The first stop on the playground in Sillian, a must for the amount and the originality of the games for kids also gradicelli. Next stop the Loacker, drug dealing with sale of products even of tastes never before seen. The track after leaving for a few minutes the factory goes into the Woods and really, the scent of freshly cut trees and the fall colors have an enchanting atmosphere. The downhill, some steep for children, increase and riding is great fun for parents and their children non-sporting more reckless. Many outlets a few metres from the track well marked. The redo!
