  • I can only say wonderful day riding our bikes and with small trailer for two puppies. Cycling track surrounded by nature, where peace reigns supreme and you really can breathe fresh air and green grass scented thousand plants. The 40 km in truth flow without great effort. The temperature was agreeable to the period (end of August) also if should have on hand a jacket because you are immersed in the Woods and at certain points it's cool. We spent about 3 hours with a few stops for a photo and then to eat. Remember to keep right because you meet a few brave that go ahead the return by bike but we preferred to return by train and everything went really well. Well deserved

  • departure from san candido where you can rent bikes and go down almost always downhill with some slight slope until Lienz in Austria. You pass through the Woods along a path that runs parallel to the clearly defined and the Drava River. suitable for all kids if they have a minimum of autonomy and a good bicycle-run capability. The return can be done by mounting with the bicilclette on the train back to the station of San Candido.

  • 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!!
