Tour Overview:

A fantastic blend of stunning Dolomites scenery, challenging riding and famous climbs of the Giro d’Italia in this two centred trip in Corvara/La Villa and Bormio (+ one transition night); this trip really has it all.

The riding highlights include some of the most famous mountain passes in Italian cycling history, such as the Passo Stelvio (all 3 routes), Passo Gavia and Sella Ronda Loop. The picture postcard Dolomites give way to the rugged Alps coupled with rich cultural experiences  pulled together using our extensive local knowledge and we’ll be giving you plenty of time to soak up the history of this fascinating region. 

As always, flexible ride options are available thanks to our best in the business guide to rider ratio and van support. If you want to push yourself the option is there or if you want a more relaxed holiday we can cater for both.

Highlights:

  • Ride all 3 ways up the infamous hair pinned Stelvio.   

  • The spectacular scenery of the Dolomites, including the Sella Ronda climbs, the Fedeia (Marmolada), Erbe and more.

  • Experience the Mortirolo feared by the pros.

  • Chance to really explore the area off the bike as we stay 3 nights in each location.

  • The “Pro” experience includes the best in the business on road support.
