Valbruna and its Val Saisera
Riding from the Valbruna village up its own valley, Val Saisera, is a fantastic mountain bike ride along trails and dirt roads with incredible views. Multiple trails and roads allow for different levels of riding and a loop ride to the end of the valley takes probably 2 to 3 hours (depending on riding intensity and number of photos taken!) with limited elevation gain and a great variety of terrain: trails, roads, river crossings, open meadows, river beds and more!
Ride description: Valbruna-Kraniska Gora-Lake Fusine-Valbruna              
From Valbruna all the way to Kraniska Gora in Slovenia along the bike path created on the site of the old railroad tracks. On the return you can take a short detoru to the beautiful Lake Fusine before returning to Valbruna on the bike path. This ride can be done on road or mountain bikes; if riding your mountain bike you will have the option to ride a scenic dirt road from Lake Fusine Superior through the forest of the National Park of Tarvisio for a portion of the return itinerary. The ride is about 60 km round trip with moderate hills and total elevation gain of about 400 m (1,200 feet) if taking the detour to Fusine Lake or less than 200 m (600 feet) when you don't climb to the lake, which by the way is totally worth it!.
Ride description: Valbruna-Resia (return via train or car pick-up)
A slight downhill all the way from Valbruna along the 1870s old railroad line with bridges, tunnels and stunning views makes this 40 km. ride a fantastic trip through the Julian Prealps and along the Fella river! The ride ends in Resia where you could have rotisserie chicken that will possibly hold in your memories as the best you've ever had! The ride can be extended into Val Resia for an additional 30km round trip back to Resia for the rotisserie chicken and fries, served here since 1973, that will make this ride a memorable experience!
