CONQUER THE DOLOMITES AND PUSH YOUR LIMITS

The Dolomites are said to be the most beautiful mountains in the world. The spectacular UNESCO-labeled landscapes of vertical
rock walls and dolomite cliffs, jutting out of picturesque Alpine meadows, also offer some of the best road riding on the planet. Join us for a classic 7-day round trip starting and ending in the capital of the Dolomites, Bolzano.

This advanced trip will challenge your skill and fitness through the Dolomites in the East as well as the majestic Ortler and Trentino mountains to the West. A week riding some of Italy’s greatest climbs made famous by the Giro: first the legendary Stelvio and the beautiful Gavia, then the Giau, the Fedaia, at the foot of the Marmolada, the cols of the famous Sella Ronda and last but not least the Tre Cime.

On top of that, you will enjoy the authentic and warm hospitality of South-Tyrol which combines the best of the Italian and the Austrian worlds — especially in culinary terms. If you love Alpine cycling, this trip should be on your shortlist.

"And into the mountains I go, to lose my mind and find my soul."

Highlights of your trip

UNESCO World Heritage Site

The unique rock formations found in the Dolomites make this location truly special. The ecological significance of the pale mountains made this site a UNESCO interest in 2009, being named the world's most beautiful mountains.

Alpine Landscapes

Riding amidst these impressive but peaceful and tranquil giants makes you feel exalted and the humblest: with every col, new vertical cliffs and walls seem to arise from all sides, above Alpine meadows, immense forests, green valleys and orchards covering the plains.

All Meals Included

This trip is also a fantastic opportunity to discover rich Italian cuisine. Taste the fresh and local ingredients from continental breakfasts at the hotels, picnic lunches on the road, and refuelling dinners at the end of each day.
