Description

From the PostBus stop "Buffalora" (Gasthaus Buffalora), you can cycle to Alp Buffalora with a subsequent ascent. The Val Mora bike route can also be started from Süsom Givè and the short but beautiful single trail to Buffalora can be ridden as a warm-up. On the Jufplaun plain, the dirt road leads straight ahead to a slight uphill – below a customs hut for a short distance uphill before reaching the crossing to Val Mora. After the crossing, a steep but rideable trail descends into Val Mora.
The Val Mora is still an untouched mountain valley, only visited by hikers and bikers. First through rocks, later on comfortable forest roads with views of the surrounding peaks and waterfalls. At Döss Radond (2234 m) is the watershed; on the one hand, the water flows into Val Müstair via the Aua da Vau, and on the other side into the Livigno reservoir.  Past Alp Praveder (2090 m) you descend to Alp Clastras (1943 m). Shortly below, the trail runs to the right to Lai da Rims. At Tschuccai (1779 m) the trail branches. Keep to the right or left and cycle down the Val Vau on the forest road until you reach Sta. Maria or Valchava after some time. The PostBus takes you up and down the valley every hour.

For bikers with very strong physical condition, this bike tour can also be started as a round trip from Sta. Maria.
