Exploring the Dolomites by electric bicycle

A panorama tour from Gröden to the Seiser Alm with bike guide Georg Rabanser. When you're on an electric bike, you have a built-in tailwind, thus making e-biking a special experience for everyone. Even steep mountain slopes become a piece of cake for "Sunday cyclers" when riding on an e-bike. And cyclists who want a little bit more of a challenge are welcome to reduce the electrical current and shift to muscle power.



Every week, Georg Rabanser takes all interested parties on an e-biking tour in the Dolomites. High-quality e-bikes are available for hire on-site at the Savoy Dolomites Hotel – what could be more convenient? But before starting, there's a short tutorial on the right way to cycle and especially on the finer points of e-biking.

"Today, we'll be starting from Wolkenstein and towards Monte Pana. The e-bike's little electric motor will aid us in dealing with the elevation," says Georg at the beginning of the tour. Upon reaching Monte Pana, one can enjoy the superb view extending across the Gröden Valley and the Dolomite cliffs belonging to the UNESCO World Nature Heritage Site. The tour continues on to Saltria and Kompatsch. The high-altitude plateau of the Seiser Alm / Alpe di Siusi is extremely suitable for an enjoyable e-biking panorama tour. "After a nice pause for refreshments and lunch at the Seiser Alm, we'll cycle via Pufels back to St. Ulrich and into the Gröden Valley," Georg explains. From St. Ulrich, there's a new bike trail through the Gröden Valley all the way to Wolkenstein. "A highly recommended valley bike path offering plenty of pleasant views either by bike or on foot," says Georg Rabanser. "This trail was established along the historic Gröden Rail Trail so that this eminently important chapter of the history of the Gröden Valley is not forgotten. And in order to tell the fascinating story of the famed 'Gröden Rail,'" Georg concludes. Once we've returned to the hotel, we can look forward to relaxing hours in the "La Salinga SPA."
