- The Dolomites Mountains cycling route, passing through the provinces of Belluno and Bolzano, is a long pedestrian and bike path made for the most part out of the old railway tracks, abandoned since 1964. It passes through the Val di Lando and the Toblach Lake, letting you make stops in the many villages of the valley and the old railway stations, as well as churches, museums and workshops. The path is not recommended for children and requires a minimum level of training to conquer it. The best time to go is during the summer months.
