This tour is a one-way route. If you like, you can drive them there and back in a day. Or you can turn it into a little adventure and plan the tour as an overnighter. You can stay overnight in the wine village of Kurtatsch and start your return journey relaxed the next day.The tour begins in the charming holiday resort Nova Ponente in Eggental. From here a narrow side road leads partly steeply uphill to the Laabalm, where you can treat yourself to a first breather. When you arrive on the high plateau, you can look forward to a scenic drive from alpine pasture to alpine pasture with various refreshment stops: Whether Laabalm, Neuhütt-Alm or Schönrastalm - up here you get your money's worth in every respect.Now a long descent into the Adige Valley is waiting for you, which begins shortly after the Schönrastalm. It leads you to the route of the former Fiemme Valley Railway. The cycle path with its numerous tunnels is a true gravel adventure. Some of the tunnels are not lit so you better pack your lights.Shortly before your destination, you will reach the Etsch via the beautiful Etsch cycle path. Here, a cozy resting place with fresh juices and fruit invites you to take a short break. From here it is not far to the end of the tour in the wine village of Kurtatsch. Lukas is already waiting for you in the Gasthof BikeHotel Terzer with delicious cuisine and a good wine. If you don't want to take the same route back the next day, he is guaranteed to have a good suggestion for an alternative route.
