From the post office stop Buffalora (Gasthaus Buffalora) you cycle to Alp Buffalora followed by ascent. The Val Mora bike route can also be started from Süsom Givè and the short but beautiful single trail to Buffalora can be cycled as a warm-up. On the Jufplaun plain, the gravel road leads straight out to slightly uphill - below a customs hut a short distance uphill before reaching the transition to Val Mora. After the crossing, a steep but easily drivable trail descends into Val Mora.
The Val Mora is a still 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 the Döss Radond (2234 m) is the watershed, once the water flows over the Aua da Vau into the Val Müstair, on the other side into the reservoir of Livigno. Now the descent begins. Passing Alp Praveder (2090 m) we descend to Alp Clastras (1943 m). Shortly below, the trail runs to the right to Lai da Rims. At Tschuccai (1779 m) the path branches off. We keep to the right or left and bike down the Val Vau on the forest road until after some time we arrive in Sta. Maria or Valchava arrive. With the Posauto you can get up and down the valley every hour.

From very strong bikers, this bike tour can also be used as a round trip from Sta. Maria.


The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour.
