is a very sunny and lively village in Val Pusteria
in South Tyrol. The village is located east of the 2,272 m high Plan de Corones Mountain
, which has twice been the final destination of a Giro d'Italia mountain stage. The mountain can either be cycled or you can simply take the cable cars up to the summit. Once you are at the top you can choose from several special freeride tracks.
If you are a road cyclist, the nearby Passo Furcia/Furkelpass
provides the ideal training route. Passo Furcia is also the door to the Dolomites and to Alta Badia
And since Valdaora is located directly at the Val Pusteria cycling track
and also has a train station, the village is also very popular amongst pleasure cyclists and e-bikers.
