This itinerary is a beautiful and easy bike ride for the whole family, which mostly takes place on paved cycle paths that from the bell tower of Curon Venosta heads north towards Resia, past the moored sailboats waiting for the wind.

The route to follow is not the one that heads toward the border with Austria, but the one toward Resia, in the direction of the western shore, beyond the valley station of Belpiano, from where a small slope begins that runs along the lake. Continue to the southern shore with the dam and the panorama offered by the Ortels (3905m) behind the Muta di Malles.

Near the dam wall, turn north, enjoying the view of the lake and the mountains on the way back to Curon Venosta. If it's windy, the lake is covered with sails and the banks are filled with colorful kites taking flight.

There are numerous possibilities for stops along the way: at the Jausenstation Giernhof and Greinhof, in Resia, San Valentino, and Curon Venosta.
