Cycle path
The Cycle Path of the Venosta Valley

Lush green meadows, sparse forests and tranquil villages cross your path from Parcines up to Resia. A predominantly tarmac cycle route takes you along the Adige river through the diverse landscape of the Val Venosta valley. Thanks to the well-developed Val Venosta railway line, any desired section of the route can also be done by train.
