Take the Cycling path heading south to Borca – Calalzo. At Zuel, turn right into the municipal road as far as Pian da Lago and then right towards Socol little village.

Cross the bridge over the Boite river and turn left into the dirt road that leads to San Vito skirting the river on its right side.

A few hundred metres ahead, a modern stable on your left is worth a stop to taste their dairy products.

Approaching San Vito, the road features some gentle ups and downs and, before the Geralba bridge, turn left and continue on the level road as far as the Pian de l’Aga bridge.

Cross the bridge to get to the left side of the river and a steep uphill stretch will lead you to the paved cycling path to return to Cortina.

If you fancy a rest stop and refreshments, we recommend to continue, after the Geralba bridge, as far as Lago di San Vito, where your kids will have fun around the lake.
