Breathe in the cleanest air, feel your wheels glide along the road and gaze into the glorious surroundings of the Dolomites. This cycling trip takes you flying up and down several famous Alpine passes where Giro d’Italia icons made their names.

This challenging ride is a test of your stamina which will push your cycling boundaries to the limit. Spectacular views, enchanting accommodation and exquisite Italian food & wine makes this a demanding yet luxurious journey.

Your ride begins in the Renaissance city of Trento. Situated in the Alpines it will capture your heart with its display of history and art. Enjoy a scrumptious welcome dinner on your first night as you go through a tour briefing with the accompanying guides on this trip.

The real action begins with the first of many famous passes: Passo Manghen. Bolstered by a hearty breakfast you will feel more than up to the task of tackling the 23.5km (15 mi) ascent. The eventual descent to Val di Fiemme will have you feeling like you’re riding on air. At the end, a delicious Italian aperitif awaits.

The second day of riding takes you along the captivating Sella Ronda loop, encompassing four fantastic passes. This legendary ride is so popular that roads are closed twice a year for cyclists to enjoy it.

The scenery on this tour is a huge highlight especially if you end up at the picturesque lake in the village of Alleghe. With the backdrop of mountains this is a place where you’ll want your camera to be ready.

Brave other legendary passes like Giao and Falzarego. At the same time, grab some more excellent Italian cuisine and wines before the last day of the ride.

The final cycling day leads you to the three-stage Passo delle Erbe-Bressanone. After reaching the top, celebrate this epic trip in style with a gorgeous banquet of food, while looking back on the ride of a lifetime.
