Because San Candido is 500 m (1,640 ft) higher than the endpoint in Austria, even novices can complete the ride in two to three hours.

  • Beautiful Cyclovia, well taken care of and although very crowded it is really a pleasure to reach Lienz by walking it. Not being accustomed to the bicycle we then returned to San Candido by train. Anyway it was a great walk! Highly recommended

  • It ' was a pleasant day, the path, in the middle of the woods, is predominantly downhill and also facing those who are not trained (are 42 km is still necessary to be healthy). Highly crowded. Bicycles rented in S. Candido Station and collected at the station in Lienz from PAPIN, excellent organisation.
