The tour takes you through the UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve Sila National Park. In addition to deep forests, many lakes and beautiful views over the Sila await you here.It starts at Lake Cecita. From the bank you cycle directly into the forest and follow the road up the mountain. You reach the highest point of the tour on Monte Pettinascura at an altitude of about 1,560 meters. After a well-deserved long descent and a slightly uphill stretch, the route leads to Germano at an altitude of 1,263 meters, a hamlet near San Giovanni in Fiore.The landscape is now more open and you can enjoy wonderful views of the forested mountains and Lake Ariamàcina, which you half circle around in a large arc. At the junction to Croce di Magara you also have the opportunity to take a detour to the “Giganti di Fallistro” nature reserve, where you can admire five hectares of pristine pine forest.After you have passed the village of Sculca at an altitude of 1,360 meters, turn off towards Silvana Mansio. In the charming village at 1,470 meters above sea level, you finally reach the destination of the tour.
