Bucket list rides, unsurpassed scenery and charming ski towns and villages await you. Our routes will accommodate the moderate to the serious cyclist with shortened versions or adding more challenges. The rides will average between 30-50 miles a day and of course with the ascending and descending which comes with the Dolomite passes.
Your Dolomite Cycling Tour starts in the Corvara Valley of Italy—one of the many ski towns in the Dolomites where we will spend 3 nights. The rides will include the Sella Ronda loop, Passo Flazerago and Alp di Suisi. More than just cycling as there is so much to discover along the way including a remarkable World War 1 tunnel.
Your tour continues to the Süd Tirol village of Rabland surrounded by vineyards, orchards and mountains. A day off to a pleasant way to spend your time in the lower elevation and usually warmer weather. A via ferrata outing is a great addition to this Dolomite adventure or just relaxing by the pool and the nature to prepare to the the bucket list of all climbs “Passo Stelvio” as the tour continues to Bormio.

Passo Stelvio is the breathtaking journey route to Bormio. The 48 switchbacks are not only an engineering marvel but a cyclists dream climb. The exciting ski town of Bormio has so much to offer with outside cafes, shopping, cyclists and lots of energy. The 3 nights spent in Bormio gives us the time for rides including Cancano, Passo Gavia and Umbrail.
