The MTB Gardena Ronda is with 40 km and a difference in elevation of 3000m downhill and only 350m uphill, one of the most beautiful cycling tours in the Dolomites. The tour is, due to its technical difficulty, only suitable for bikers with downhill experience and can just be done with our qualified bike guides. The cable car to the Rasciesa (2100m), Seceda (2500m) and Alpe di Siusi (2000m) allow the accomplishment of 3000m of altitude. The bike pass for the cable cars can be purchased against a fee only when accompanied by a bike guide.
