  • Antholzertal Valley: From Olang via signposted cycle route directly into the Antholz Valley.
  • Pragser Tal Valley: By bike along the valley cycle path into the Prags Valley directly to the Prags Lake

  • Höhlenstein Valley: scenic beauty between the imposing rock faces of the two nature parks Fanes-Sennes-Prags and Drei Zinnen.
  • Tauferer Ahrntal Valley: Into the most rustic valley in South Tyrol - framed by 3,000-metre peaks.
  • Badia Valley: Via the quiet side road by bike to St. Vigil and as far as Pederü

An unbeatable duo

Drau cycle path & railway

The Drau Cycle Path is a real crowd-puller that doesn't demand too much from families or pleasure cyclists: from Olang you're in Toblach in no time and from here it's all downhill to Lienz. Now it's time to explore the town, go shopping and enjoy a coffee in the sun. Save your energy, enjoy your day and do whatever you want - because the return journey to San Candido can be made quite comfortably by train. The great bike rental service in Olang, the good train connections in the entire Puster Valley and the use of public transport in South Tyrol with the SÜDTIROL GUEST PASS make it possible and the bike can be handed back at a rental point to enjoy the return journey from San Candido to Olang in comfort on the train!

 

Combi-ticket offers from Südtirol-Rad or Papin Sport include the rental bike and, if desired, the return of the rental bike at another rental point along the route.

This gives you the option of cycling just one route, simply returning your bike at one of the many return stations and then comfortably returning by train - without a bike in your luggage. This is how easy valley cycling is in the Puster Valley!

 

INSIDERTIP: If you are travelling with your own bike, you should avoid the peak times and simply plan your tours with Train+Bike anti-cyclically. This way you can avoid big crowds in the peak season. Or you can take advantage of the ingenious bike shuttle offer from Rent & Go: Find your favourite destination and Kurt's bike shuttle will take you directly there.

With the trekking bike into the Pragsertal Valley and directly to the Pragser Wildsee Lake, the million-fold shared Insta-star of the region. In high season, the road is quota for cars, i.e., from 10:00 in the morning cyclists conquer the road to the picturesque lake. However, caution is still advised when riding on the road.

Tour details

Antholzer See Lake

From Olang it goes by bike through the whole Antholzertal Valley until you reach the Antholzer See Lake and the Biathlon Center at the end of the valley.

The tour can still be extended - over the Staller Sattel pass. The pass road is open every hour from minute 30 to minute 45. 

However, caution is still advised when riding on the road.

Reinbach Waterfalls in Sand in Taufers

The spectacular waterfalls can be reached via short hiking trails through the forest and are definitely worth the small diversions! The thundering natural spectacle is divided into three waterfalls, which overcome up to 50 metres.

Tour details

St. Vigil in Enneberg
