On this tour you will appreciate the full beauty of the Livigno Valley! Starting on the cycling path we continue through the woods along a super-flowy trail on one side of the valley. Our return brings us back on the other side, with a slightly more technical route. This tour can be reduced, by taking short cuts here and there.

This is the “must do” tour for all cross-country bikers, as well as for those who have an all-mountain or enduro bike and who are not afraid of tough climbs! Two hard up-hill sections will respectively take us to two passes, after which the super-flowy descents will reward us with an adrenaline rush all the way down!

On this tour we are going to visit two valleys around Livigno, Val delle Mine and Val Federia, by using two gondolas, Mottolino & Carosello. Flowy on one side, slightly more rocky on the other. During the trip, we will admire breath-taking views of Livigno from one of the peaks that surrounds the village, so don’t forget your cameras! It’s also possible to split this tour, by taking only one of the two gondolas.
Same as above, but with an extra ingredient: Val del Gallo, where we will discover a hidden part of the Livigno Lake with it’s wonderful views while trespassing into Switzerland. We terminate with a technical descent to start with, which becomes fast and flowy at the end!

Also on this tour we are going to take both Mottolino and Carosello gondolas. After a few berms and jumps on the bikepark, we will take the right-side towards the Foscagno Pass where, after a short climb, a super-flowy trail through the woods will bring us down to the Livigno Lake. After this first fun part, we will take a full-way run with the Carosello gondola, where the new Flow-Trail starts (10 km of flow!!!) and will take us, after a long traverse full of berms and jumps, back down to Livigno!
NEW 2015! Val Minor, the new trail + Lago del Monte (AM - EN)
This is a tour which starts in Livigno, goes over the swiss boarder through the beautiful new Val Minor trail and returns to the Livigno area through another valley, Val de Fèn. There will be some bike pushing-carrying, for more or less 30’, but all this hard work will be well worth it for the last great descent of the day; from Lago del Monte, one of the many alpine lakes around Livigno, back down to the town after loads of exciting switchbacks along the trail!
From Stelvio Pass to Livigno, through the World War One trenches (AM-EN)

Today we are going to do one of the most rewarding tours around Livigno! After a 1h30’ taxi transfer to the Stelvio Pass, we will start with a rocky downhill section that will take us to the Umbrail Pass, where the first climb of the day awaits us, with some pushing now and then. At the top of the Bocchetta Forcola, you will receive some historical information while being shown the World War One trenches and other military constructions. Here the longest descent of the day begins, nice and smooth at the beginning, technical and rocky towards the end. After having lunch in one of the mountain lodges along the Cancano Lakes, the last climb of the day (you’ll build up enough energy for this one with your lunch!) will offer us a special reward: a super-flowy and fast descent to Livigno!
NEW 2015! Piz Umbrail, the peak! (EN)

This tour will take us right to the top of the mountain, Piz Umbrail (3033 m). Starting from the Stelvio Pass, an initially rocky descent will take us to the Umbrail Pass, followed by a 50 minute climb (there are also some sections with chains to help you!) It’s well worth the effort, because once at the top we’ll be rewarded with breath-taking views of the highest peaks of the Alps, giving us a burst of adrenaline for what comes next; an amazing descent along the ridge of the mountain, continuing through the whole valley, alongside little alpine lakes and sparkling water-falls. After all this fun, a short climb followed by a flowy descent through Val Mora will take us to the Cancano Lakes, where we have two options for our return to Livigno: a shorter climb with a fast descent on a wide-gravel road or a hard climb followed by a flowy and fast single-trail; it depends on you guys!
NEW 2015! Val Minor + Bernina Freeride (AM - EN)
Training: High | Length: 36 Km | Duration 6h - 8h

Questo tour ci porterà ancora una volta a percorrere il nuovissimo sentiero che conduce all’imbocco della Val Minor, dal Passo Forcola (dove è tuttavia possibile arrivarci con un transfer, per evitare la prima salita). Dalla bocchetta che sovrasta la Val Minor, prendiamo un sentiero che ci porterà in prossimità del Passo Bernina, dove parte il classico e sempre tecnico e divertente Bernina Freeride che conduce a Poschiavo, buon divertimento a tutti! Da notare che è possibile fare anche il solo Bernina Freeride, su richiesta!
XC = cross country: relatively simple routes though certain parts could have some technical passages. Both hardtail (with just front suspension) and full suspension bikes, with more or less shock absorption are suitable for these tours.
AM= alla mountain: on these itineraries you can find harder technical sections, where a full suspension mountain bike with at least 120-130 mm travel is suitable, allowing you to get the most out of the descents as well as the climbs. Knee guards advisable!
EN= enduro: these are the most technical and challenging trails, where we can find however flowy parts letting our bikes run smoothly, but mainly rough and rocky sections where it is best to have a 150-160 mm travel bike (enduro bike) making most of their movement! Knee guards are a must!
S0: gravel or packed earth. No particular difficulties. Mostly forest and meadow paths.
S1: smaller obstacles like roots and small stones. Erosion damage may increase difficulty. Soil may be loose in places.
S2: obstacles such as large rocks and stones. Soil is often loose. Steps are expected. Wider hairpin turns, steepness of up to 70%. Requires some advanced riding skills.
S3: many sections with large obstacles such as boulders and large roots. Many hairpin and off-balance turns. Slippery surface and talus sections may be found.
S4: very steep and difficult, with sections having large boulders and roots. Frequent loose debris. Very steep sections with very tight hairpin turns and high steps that will cause the chainring to hit the ground. Some trials techniques will be necessary.
S5: very steep and difficult with big boulder fields and debris, and landslides. Speed must be carried for counter-ascents. If at all only short passages are available for accelerating and braking. Very few Mountainbikers can actually ride at this level.
