Pin It

Easy cycling and breathtakingly dramatic alpine scenery are combined on this one-of-a-kind journey through the valleys of the Dolomite mountains of northern Italy.

Our shuttle takes you to the top of peaks where downhill and flat paths reveal meadows, orchards, forests, canyons and roaring cascades. You’ll visit ancient villages and discover local history and delicious cuisine, such as a special barbecue feast and a picnic lunch beside a bucolic lake. At the end of each vigorous day of cycling, we pamper you with our selection of 4-star hotelsincluding one with access to one of the finest spas in the South Tyrol.
