Mountain bike tours in Cornaiano/Girlan and surrounding area

Well saddled through impressive landscapes

Sure you can pedal away in the Gym at the Weinegg spa hotel but we guarantee that one of the many mountain bike tours that take you right through the charming vineyard scenery of South Tyrol's south and high up to the Mendola/Mendelkamm are much more beautiful.

Popular mountain bike tours lead through the Monticolo/Montiggl forest, into the vineyards, past castles and estates, turning biking into a feast for the eyes and cycling in South Tyrol is an extraordinary pleasure with great views high up surrounded by steep rock faces.

Sample the rich variety of mountain bike tours on offer to the full. At the Weinegg hotel we have free bike hire, guided mountain bike tours are also on our weekly programme.
