The Paganella region in the Dolomite Mountains in Italy is a paradise for mountain bikers of all disciplines and skill levels. Whether you are a beginner or professional, or cross-country fan or die-hard downhill riders, you’ll find awesome trails in the region. e-MTBers will also be happy here. The region understands the needs of mountain bikers and is constantly evolving to maintain its status as a mountain biking mecca. In 2020, a few brand new trails have opened: the Peter Pan trail, the Giada Line, and an uphill tour to the Croz dell'Altissimo hut which is especially for e-MTBers.

Nestled amongst the Adige Valley in Italy, the Paganella is a beautiful mountainous region with secluded lakes. Its stunning landscapes and the calm waters of Lago di Molveno are a well-kept secret compared to popular destinations like Lake Garda. Yet, the region is a dream for mountain biking – you’ll find almost unlimited trails and possibilities to explore.

For riders looking for technical trails and downhill action, the Dolomiti Paganella Bike Park, with its three zones, is perfect. Here, you can let off steam on downhill tracks or fun-oriented flow trails and end the day on one of the two pump tracks. Various cable cars bring you and your bike straight to the start of the trails and homey mountain huts make sure you never go hungry.

If you prefer to experience a breathtaking mountain adventure rather than action-packed trails, the Dolomiti Paganella is the right place for you. With over 250 miles (400 kilometers) of routes, the area offers something for every level of biker. Combining action and nature, the “Ultimate Enduro Experience” offers a unique adventure. On this route, you can take the lifts up to the top of the climbs and then join spectacular trails that are absolutely insane for any biker.

In the Paganella, there are 27 bike hotels and twelve bike chalets to make your holiday even more enjoyable and bike-friendly. The 13 charging stations at different huts ensure that even e-bikers do not run out of juice. And, if you need to hire a bike or you do not want to go on a big Tour on your own, bike hire stations, bike shops, and tour guides are on hand to help out.
