Tras La Val

Starting at Ofenpasshöhe down to the abbey in Müstair – Tras la Val is the tour for people loving singletrails and nature. There is no better way to explore the Val Müstair. The tour takes you 21 km and 1400 meters down through the whole valley. It starts at Ofenpasshöhe Süsom Givè, which you and your bike can get to with a shuttle. To get up to Alp da Munt, in the middle of the ski area Minschuns, you need a bit of muscle power. After that you can look forward to one of the most flowy singletracks of the area, winding itself through meadows and past Swiss pine forest.

From Alp Champatsch you ride through the woods down to Lü, where you can fuel up in the restaurant. From there on you ride mainly on singletrails all the way down to Müstair. As a cherry on the pie there are a few tricky switchbacks waiting on the last bit down to the abbey Müstair. You can always finish the tour in one of the other villages in the valley.

Local riders built several parts of this tour in volontary work to make a flowy trail experience happen.

By the way. The tour ends at the house in Müstair, where Danny MacAskill does his famous front flip in the film «Home of Trails».

Passo Gallo

Passo Gallo is an extention of the classic tour through Val Mora, for everybody who wants a bit more singletrails or just wants to go a bit further.
The tour starts at Ofenpasshöhe Süsom Givè, which you and your bike can get to with a shuttle. Just at the start you’ll find your first highligt: A flowy singletrail takes you down to Buffalora, from where you’ll climb up to Jufplaun. Instead of riding directly down to Val Mora, you take the turn to Passo Gallo on the Italian border. The following trail with a view onto Lago di Livigno is one of the best trails in the Alps. It’s very flowy, only at the very end you have to push your bike for a little bit. After that you’ll reach the lake area of Lago di Cancano, where you got the possibilities to fuel up in one of the restaurants.

Over Passo Val Mora you and your bike reach the Val Mora gorge which gets wider and wider and is ridable the whole way through. The more you ride toward Döss Radond the more the valley of Val Mora opens. The unique landscape reminds of Canada – no wonder, you are in a “UNESCO Biospheric reserve”.

From Döss Radond you can either ride down to Sta. Maria on the fire road or you take the singletrails, which got built by the local riders. A secret trail is «Hom dal Chapé». On a corner a wood chopper – a massive wooden sculpture which you can’t miss – is guarding the entrance in one of the most interesting singletrails of the area. It is fairly technical but still really flowy so the tour definately ends on a high.
