Cycling in Dolomites

Bookings & Enquiries

Join us in the Dolomites for a spectacular week of cycling in the tire tracks of many famous Giro d’Italia stages.
Trip dates 18-25 June / 3-10 September

We’ve prepared a week of the best and most challenging riding you’ll find anywhere in Europe.

Our itinerary includes the most famous and most challenging climbs in Italy… Zoncolan Stelvio…. Gavia…. Mortirolo…. Pordoi…. Fedaia…. Sella….Duron…. Giau…. Campolongo….and more!

Trip Highlights:

The trip starts in Ravascletto on the eastern edge of the Dolomites. The warm-up ride includes 2 new climbs to our tours – the Passo Duron and the Sella Valcalda.

But it’s Stage 2 that features the main change with the Zoncolan taking centre-stage. The Zoncolan, along with the Angliru in Spain, is rated the toughest climb in Europe so we thought it only fitting that it should become a permanent feature in our program. After the Zoncolan, anyone with energy left in their legs can go on to tackle Monte Crostis, another HC climb that starts just 5km from our hotel.

Stage 3 takes us west across the Cima Sappada, Passo Tre Croci and Passo Giau to Alleghe.
