Path 644 winds through a wide forest with a well-compacted surface, making pedaling pleasant and safe. he inclines become challenging along the way, but don’t worry, the scenery that surrounds you will make every effort worth it. In about 7.5 kilometres, you will face a drop of about 1000 metres, reaching the spectacular panoramic arrival point of Sella Brunech.
During the ascent, you will have the opportunity to make a regenerating stop at the Jumela malga, the only refreshment point along the way, a typical mountain malga, with a delicious menu.
Here you can taste local specialities and recharge before continuing the adventure. The route is in the shade, immersed in the woods up to the Jumela hut, offering an authentic and pleasant experience even on the climb.
As you gain altitude, the valley opens up and will give you ever wider and more spectacular views. You will also encounter the wide slopes of the Buffaure ski area, a tangible sign of the sporting activity of the Dolomites in every season.
Once at the top, you will reach Sella Brunech, where you will find the arrival stations of the Sella Brunech and Orsa Maggiore chairlifts. From here, the descent towards the Ciampac area begins, another fascinating area that will open up to you along the way. Following a beaten road downhill, you will face sections with steep slopes, which will make the descent even more exciting.
Continuing along the route, you will meet the top station of the cable car that goes up from Alba di Canazei to Ciampac. From here, continue your journey towards Alba di Canazei, enjoying an exciting descent that will cover a vertical drop of 550 meters in less than 3 kilometres.

Canazei, Fedaia lake and Marmolada by bike
Here is another of the most exciting cycling adventures that Canazei has to offer: the route that takes you from the village, then from our Albergo Canazei to Lake Fedaia, at the foot of the majestic Marmolada. This itinerary, about 14 kilometers long, will lead you through woods and natural beauties and will give you a crazy experience.
Beginning from Canazei, you can start your adventure by taking the SS48 road towards Passo Fedaia. This stretch of the climb is considered the “easy” variant compared to the ascent from Malga Ciapela, but that doesn’t mean you should underestimate it, especially in the last stretch, which can prove challenging. The road follows the natural narrowing of the Val di Fassa up to Passo Fedaia, and we advise you to follow the SS641 after passing through the center of Canazei and past the first roundabout.
As you start pedalling, you will cross Alba di Canazei and reach Penia, the last village in the valley. Here the slopes increase slightly and the official ascent begins. Through hairpin bends and straights, you will get closer and closer to your goal. Along the way, you can enjoy the panoramic view of Pian Trevisan and admire the tunnels in the distance that you will pass through in the final stretches of the ascent.
The galleries you will come across are partially dug into the mountain and supported by pillars, creating a suggestive atmosphere and allowing the external light to filter inside, illuminating the path.
In this most demanding section, it is important to dose your energies and not exaggerate your effort, because the hardest part is yet to come. In fact, after passing a small stream, the slopes rise further and you will arrive at the series of tunnels you glimpsed earlier. Don’t worry, it will only be 2 kilometers, but it will require some extra effort.
The road continues with straight stretches and the tunnels follow each other slowly, allowing us to appreciate the surrounding environment at a speed of about 10 km/h. The last tunnel, different from the others, goes completely into the mountain and is illuminated by spotlights. When you see it, you will be able to breathe a sigh of relief, as the gradient will decrease slightly and, after about 200 metres, you will come out directly at Passo Fedaia, at an altitude of 2,057 metres.
Reaching Passo Fedaia will be a moment of triumph and satisfaction.
As soon as you arrive you can enjoy the spectacular view of the lake below and the magnificent Marmolada, the queen of the Dolomites.
Here a break to admire the view and recharge your batteries before embarking on the return to Canazei, or you can decide to further explore the surroundings, perhaps with a panoramic walk around the lake, advancing you will pass from Trentino to the Veneto region.
The itinerary up to Lake Fedaia is a fascinating challenge for passionate cyclists, but requires good physical conditions and a bike suitable for the route.
Otherwise, using an e-bike, even the less trained can reach the top.
Make sure you bring the necessary equipment, such as a helmet, clothing suitable for the weather, protein foods and enough water.
