Panoramic tour that crosses the villages of Le Ville - Daiano, Castello di Fiemme and Cavalese, through wide meadows and forest roads. The itinerary hides an unexpected military outpost, now camouflaged in the vegetation.
The route winds through open and airy meadows and pastures with a view of the Lagorai chain. It crosses the small villages around Cavalese and then plunges into the dense forest of the Solombo area. Not far from here you will discover unexpected details, such as the trenches that are now one with the vegetation. A short walk in the forest along these remains of war leads to a strategic observation point on the Dolomite Road. A section of the following cycle path crosses a particularly valuable natural area of the valley, the Brozin Biotope.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and it is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
Cycle from Cavalese towards Tesero and after about 2 km take the road on the left going up to Varena.
This panoramic trail takes you on some forest roads, passing among the fields that connect the towns of Varena and Daiano. Pay attention to the short but steep and hard 300 m climb (over 15%) on a porphyry-paved road in Daiano.
After 14 km, a wooden plaque reminds us that in this area the Great War was fought. From here starts a loop ride to discover seven Austrian trenches (push your bike).
On the descent back to the S. Lugano pass, we suggest riding slowly and carefully. From San Lugano continue to Cavalese, first on the cycle route to the Brozin biotope, then on a short stretch of dirt road and finally on the paved street passing through the town of Castello di Fiemme.
