Wonderful trails in Val d'Ega

Up und Down in the Dolomites

Not only cycling celebrities such as free rider Guido Tschugg, or downhill world cup bikers Johannes Fischbacher and Daniel Schäfer know, that Val d'Ega offers superb trails where you can really let off steam. You don't have to be a professional biker, however, to enjoy your cycling holiday at our hotel. As keen cyclists ourselves, we would like to convey our enthusiasm for the sport to all our guests – at different ability levels, on tours with varying difficulty. We will prepare you for the adventure at our cycling training session. You can whiz through the surroundings at ease on one of our e-bikes, and savour the South Tyrolean specialities and the mountain paradise of the Dolomites at the mountain huts en route, an essential part of an unforgettable mountain bike holiday.

Our bike tours

The Hotel Marica is the starting point for numerous exciting bike tours around the Val d’Ega. We will be pleased to reveal to you our favourite trails – over passes and alpine pastures, meadows and forests.

Starting point: Bikehotel Marica
Level of difficulty: easy

Duration: 2.30 h
Elevation gain: 670

From the village square of Ega we cycle west, following path no. 7 towards the Kobhof farm (asphalt road). A single trail (no. 7) leads to the Löwen inn. By the bridge near the civil protection centre, we then follow along the pavement by the main road towards Nova Levante. We turn right over the bridge, then along path no. 10 until we reach the gate by the reservoir. After the gate we continue along the forest road (do not take the first road on the left), climb slightly until the large hairpin bend, then we go downhill until we reach the turning area, with a superb panorama. After a slight climb we then take the steep descent towards Schang farm. Our route continues along easy forest roads until the fork before the farm, and we follow directions to Geigerhof and Reiterhof. After about 1 km, we take the steep path behind the gate (the alternate route to the Stadelalm is also possible – 500 m). After a short climb the path takes us, onto path no. 8 (Templweg). We cycle south-east until we reach the Bewallerhof farm, after passing by the bench known as the Bankele after which the tour is named. From here, a 2.5 km alternative route leads to the Häusler Sam guesthouse. We cycle back to Ega along the asphalt road, or down path no. 0 (“Schandweg”).

On snow shoes to the Stradivaris

The thick, soft blanket of snow swallows all sounds and worries. Wrapped up well, we plod our way through the fresh snow, sinking in a little, with just the sound of our breath. We are surrounded by a thick forest of centuries-old trees with a special history: the famous Stradivari violins were in fact made with the spruce wood from Val d’Ega. As still as snowflakes we listen to their sweet melody.

King Laurin and his rose garden

The sun shines brightly above Carezza. We take the cable car up to the snow-covered slopes below the legendary Catinaccio, “Rosengarten” in German. They say the castle of the dwarf king Laurin is the highest peak of all, and in the cool air between Catinaccio, Croda di Re Laurino and the Latemar, he created a splendid rose garden for his beloved Simhilde. In the snow, we still see the silver threads he once spun over the rose bushes.

Springtime

Each season has its charm, but spring in our country is really something special! While you can explore the last snowfields with skis, it’s already possible to do hiking, mountain biking and road cycling through the valleys.

Southtyrol land of mountains and lakes

Fantastic choice for road bike and Mountain bike. Our "Marica" is situated at 1100m between the vineyards in the valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Today we went to Bolzano and the lake Caldaro. We enjoyed not only the panorama, but also our ice cream.

Highlight of the Balance Week

A treat for your eyes, ears, heart and soul! As the sun slowly sets we went on a twilight hike accompanied by the sound of song, wind instruments and drums in combination with theatre and artistic performances. A magical and relaxing experience we will never forget.

What a night: we celebrated Carnival with an awesome costume-party! Playing funny games and dancing to the rhythms of DJ Bernd till late. This was definitely the highlight of our Carnival-week!

Searching for clues

Autumn is the time for hunting for tracks. The air is clear, it becomes silent on the mountain tops and the lifts stand still. We make our way cautiously to the peaks of the Dolomites, and suddenly there they are – the chamois! They jump nimbly over the craggy abysses, showing us the way towards unique places. In the summer we take our guests there, because we like to share the most beautiful places of our homeland with you!

apple harvest at 4 star Hotel Marica Eggental
home-made marmelade at 4 Sterne Hotel Marica

Gathering food for winter

When we taste the delicious sun-ripened plums and apples that adorn our trees around Hotel Marica, we also think of our guests. Like squirrels we gather the fruits that our chef uses to conjure up all sorts of tasty treats: marinated plums, fine jams made with apples and plums, sweet apple purée and delicious apple chutney. Homemade souvenirs of summer – all available for you to taste at breakfast.

"We stayed in a very large room, with very spacious bathroom and separate toilet. The owners are very welcoming and helpful in giving tips for our snowshoe hiking (the area is great for winter and snowshoe hiking). The breakfast was excellent and the dinners were delicious, every course was of a very high quality. We have stayed in many Vitalpina hotels (all very good) but this one stands out for service, hospitality, atmosphere and delicious food!"

"We were already several times in the winter and in the summer in the Marica and would gladly come again! You feel welcome and is in every way ( küchenshow, gourmet menu, wine tastings, exciting excursions, pool, sauna, massages, etc.) the best."
