Bike Holidays in Folgaria
The Hotel Villaggio Nevada in Folgaria, Trentino, is ready to accommodate you and your cherished bicycles. At Villaggio Nevada you will find all the services useful for moving in the mountains on two wheels.
Folgaria is paradise for cyclists of all ages. Even your children, with lessons at the Alpe Cimbra Activity mountain bike school, can experience the thrill of riding on rough dirt tracks.
Folgaria is within the territory of the Alpe Cimbra, which also includes Lavarone, Luserna, and Vigolana, one of the very best places for bicycle excursions, both for mountain bikes or road racing bikes. The Alpe peaks (at around 1200-1300 m in height) have slopes that can be pedalled and the territory is perfectly maintained.
There is very little traffic on the well kept roads and as soon as you leave the roads the silence is only broken by bird song.
The Alpe still bear the signs of the Great War, the First World War of 1915-18. The mountain bike tracks (also used for cross-country skiing) follow many of the paths constructed (often with dry stone walls) by the Italian and Austro-Hungarian soldiers. There are extremely interesting remains, some in excellent condition, of the Forts, which were stone fortifications used as command points for military operations, outposts, or cover for the troops on the two sides of the conflict. For many years this route has been used to hold a classic mountain bike event: The 100 km of the Forts.
