    PASSION

    SINCE 20 YEARS

    Only if you experience the passion of mountain biking for yourself, you really know what we are talking about. Owner Werner Call has been taking full advantage of the extensive trail network that surrounds his resort to the past 20 years. He already has thousands of biking kilometers inside the nature park under his belt and perhaps knows all the challenges out there better than anyone else. As a professional, for years he has been guiding his guests through the magical landscapes. As owner of the resort, not only does he know the hotel, but also the entire region like his own back pocket.

    BIKE SCHOOL SAN VIGILIO

    CERTIFIED GUIDES

    Our mountain bike team are from Bike School San Vigilio, who were some of the very first bike guides in the Pustertal region and have been offering tours of the Plan de Corones for over 15 years. Our hiking guides underwent training in accordance with the guidelines of the Italian cycling association AMIBike. AMIBike is also accredited by C.O.N.I. (Italian National Olympic Committee).
