Summer: Mountain Biking
Val di Sole is perfect for all those who enjoy cycling holidays, not only does it have numerous lovely routes on unpaved trails that will take you through fruit orchards or silent forests, but it also has a 40 kilometre cycling path that winds its way along the Noce River, giving everyone the chance to enjoy the infinite number of colourful, striking landscapes. There are also several areas along the cycling path that are equipped with benches and fountains so that you can stop and take a break while you admire the amazing views. The trails are suitable for all, safe, and well-kept, and starting from the Mostizzolo Bridge, where the Noce River flows into the Santa Giustina Dam, they will lead you all the way to the town of Cogolo in Val di Peio for a total elevation difference of 1.300 meters.
During the summer season, in both Folgarida and Dimaro, there are two associations that accompany the little ones on what may very well be their first exciting and thrilling biking adventure, as well as adults as they discover the history of the surroundings, local wildlife and plant life, and of course enchanting landscapes and views of the amazing mountains in Val di Sole. All this is possible thanks to the numerous weekly outings that are organized just for guests with a Dimaro Folgarida Card.
