OUTDOOR & SPORTS WINKLERS’ INSIDER TIP Giogo d’Asta and Alpe di Rodengo Fancy a bike ride to a breath-taking mountain peak? The fun starts in Mantana, where we turn right towards Ellen and face some steep climbs. We continue on a paved road that gives us beautiful glimpses of the Val Pusteria. At the end of this road, we follow the forest path that soon leads us beyond the tree line. Here we enjoy an amazing view of the Odle of FREE Val di Funes, the Sass Putia Premium Holidaypass for the free use and the mountains of the of all public transport Val Pusteria. The summit in South Tyrol* cross of Monte Croce (Ellener Kreuz) can be seen as well. The mountain bike route ends at the nearby alm huts. To reach the peak, we have to push our bikes upwards – after about ten minutes we are standing on the top of the 2,194 m high Giogo d’Asta – the view is absolutely stunning. To return to the starting point, we pass through the picturesque Alpe di Rodengo, Rodengo, Rio di Pusteria, Vandoies and San Lorenzo.
