Itinerary - We can customise this trip for you!

 

Day 1: Arrive in Alta Badia

We recommend a morning flight. After arriving you will be met and transferred to your chosen hotel in Alta Badia. The transfer will take about 2h30. You will have time to build your bike (or pick up your hire bike), take in the magnificent scenery of the area and grab a beer on the balcony.

 

Day 2: The Passo Pordoi

This 100km loop will test your legs. Taking in no less than six climbs, today will be a day on the bike you never forget. Starting up the Passo Campolongo as a warm up, you then go on to the Passo Pordoi.  No other climb captures the the essence of mountain riding in the Dolomites quite like the Passo Pordoi. The Passo Sella follows, which is then quicly followed by the Passo Gardena, back over the Passo Campolongo and your final big climb for the day is the Passo Falzarego. 

 

Day 3: Passo Giau

Today's ride again takes you over 5 passes as you head out to ride the Passo GiauLinking the valleys of Ampezzo and Livinallongo in the Dolomites, the Giau is considered to be the most beautiful mountain pass of the range that includes both the Fedaia and Pordoi. Peaking in a vast and beautiful mountain pasture at the foot of the Nuvolau Alto 2647-metre turret you can also see the summits of the Tofane, Monte Cristallo and the Sorapis.

Even with its beauty don’t let the Giau fool you, it can also be a beast. Known for its harsh and relentless gradient, the Giau has a daunting 29 hairpin bends from the Selva di Cadore side and is over 10 km long, peaking at 2236m.

 

Day 4: Departure day

There is time to attempt the Passo Fedaia before we transfer you back to the airport . We recommend you get an afternoon or evening flight. If you want to extend this trip, this is possible. Simply contact us.
