Hiking & biking in Racines

Summer in the mountains

The sky is within reach. Discover nature in its pristine state. Admire the local flora right by the wayside. You can experience all this (and much more) while hiking in Racines and its surroundings.
Hiking paradise
Hikers are amazed by the numerous mountain tours in the Ridanna Valley and surroundings: short, easy hikes, extended hiking tours, demanding day tours, hikes on high-alpine trails, extra-long hiking tours, alpine huts and glaciers. Along the Dolomieu Trail you will be immersed into the world of the Dolomites. Turquoise alpine lakes, lush green meadows and forests, traditional alpine huts to complete your hiking holidays in South Tyrol.

Tip: Participate at the guided hiking tours!
Mountain-biking on alpine pastures
Mountain-bikers pedal hard to reach the summit, which gets closer and closer. They cycle up to the alpine pastures on forest roads to reach splendid viewpoints. When cycling downhill they enjoy the wind around their noses.
Cycling, E-bike & road bike
A comfortable cycle along the cycling routes in the valley, to Vipiteno, Bressanone and Chiusa. We recommend returning by train. Road cyclists cycle up to the Pennes, Giovo or Brennero passes.
Motorbike holidays with horse power
Starting from the Melcherhof you enjoy the curvy roads on Giovo Pass, Pennes Pass, over the Brennero Pass to Innsbruck and to the Dolomites - UNESCO World Natural Heritage site.
