With LEVEL 5 the Dolomites start shortly after the German-Austrian border. The traverse of the North Chain of the Karwendel offers wonderful views and descents.

The unspoilt countryside of these mountain regions will be anchored firmly in your memories.

We pass the most beautiful mountains of the Dolomites and we ride down the most spectacular single-tracks on our way south.

Day 1    Mittenwald – Mieders / Stubai-Valley (70 km, 1800 hm)

At the source of river Isar open up the unique and overwhelming Karwendel-Valleys. Through a high alpine scenery, we bike up to the Solstein-hut.

Day 2    Mieders – Sterzing (65 km, 2750 hm)

The hardest day of the week - 3 uphills !

The first gentle climb leads up to Maria Waldrast with its holy water. On trails and forest roads we reach Trins, and after a second climb on a forest road we´ll have lunch at the Gerichtsherrnalm.

After the descent to Vinaders follows the ascent to the Brennergrenzkammstr. Half the way we w'll have a cake breake on the Sattelalm. It gives us the power for the long climb to 2000 meters above sea level. At this point of the main alpine ridge, perfect trails for mountain biking have been built by Mussolini's henchmen.

After 12 km we will reach one of the best downhills in the Alps. Caution addictive! The  destination is Sterzing...

Day 3    Sterzing – St. Vigil (71 km, 1950 hm)

On comfortable bike paths past mighty castles we cycle along the Isarco (Eisack), get out of Mühlbach we quell the way to the Rodenecker-Alm on a rarely traveled road.The first famous mountains of the Dolomites come into view - the Geisler group. On the Starkenfeld-Alp we enjoy typical south-tyrolian gastronomic specialties.We will have a wonderful glance onto the ski-mountain Kronplatz and the Fanes Area. Again the Dolomites show their best sides. The tricky singletrail down into Gardertal offers endless bike pleasure.  Todays destination is the Sport Hotel in St. Vigil.

Day 4    St. Vigil – Cortina d´Ampezzo (58 km, 1950 hm)

The day begins with the very steep ramp to Föjedöra - 8.5 km / 1000 Hm, like on a stairway to heaven. There are not many who make it without taking a foot of !

Upon reaching the pass, an incredible view is offered to us. The award for the pains suffered is an extremely fine trail down to Braies Lake (Pragser Wildsee).

An early lunch break at the lake puts us in holiday mood.

The second climb of the day brings us to the Plätzwiese and we get our well-earned cappuccino-break. Amidst giant Dolomite mountains we reach the spectacular Knappenfuss-Valley with its  demanding tracks. Good technical skills are necessary now.

An old railway embankment, rededicated to the cycle route takes us to Cortina.

In the evening, while enjoying a good wine and typical Trentino specialties, we can´t stop telling about our exploits on the trails. 

Day 5    Cortina d´Ampezzo – Falcade (50 km, 1900 hm)

We leave the glamorous town and bike up on a forest road to Croda da Lago. The upper part is again very steep and rough. Beautifully situated at the lake, we´ll find a cozy Rifugio.

The beautiful panorama of the pass Forcella Ambrizzòla inspires us on for the fine downhill path ahead of us. Lunch break in the shadow of Mount Pelmo.
