22.06.2017 - Seiser Alm Valley Tour
Varied and demanding tour from village to village in the Seiser Alm region. The valley tour combines the localities of Kastelruth, Seis and Völs in one seriously demanding but rewarding round trip at the base of the Schlern. Difficulty S1. The tour starts in the centre of Kastelruth and leads from church tower to church tower over gentle hillsides alongside hamlets and forest lakes. The first stage starts off gently and then heads along the Seiser Alm road towards St. Valentin. You are treated with a continuous unimpeded view over the valley as you roll back down the hill and cut through the village of Seis. It then runs parallel to the main road on diverse downhill bike paths past the characteristic onion-shaped tower of little St. Konstantin church and onwards through the small village of St. Anton up to Völs am Schlern. It is always worth stopping for a break in the picturesque centre of Völs, before taking the same route back towards St. Anton. Here, the path branches off towards Völser Ried and heads through peaceful Weiler until just before St. Konstantin. Here, it is worth making a quick detour to see the Konstantiner Weiher natural pond. You will need a good sense of orientation if you want to take the lonely tour around the lake until Fallhof. Cheese-enthusiasts would then be well advised to follow their noses and make a pit stop at the cheese dairy and shop, before carrying on to St. Vigil. Now, experienced technical riders can really test their mettle along the narrow trail and, in parts, very steep descent. Then it continues uphill and the tour leads on to the Malenger Mühle and across the Furscher Hof towards Seis. Here, you start by following the main road to Kastelruth, but soon branch off towards the Laranz Forest. Then you head past the Telfen sports centre and across the Misaltweg over the steps of a narrow hiking path back to Kastelruth. The last section includes a short part where you have to push, before having completed the impressive valley tour — with a total distance of 26.6 km — behind you.
