OverviewThe Italian Alps are renowned for their pristine rivers and streams, their exquisite cheeses and smoked hams but most of all for their most precious gem: the eastern most mountains called Dolomites, a paradise for any outdoor activity. Join us to pedal this region’s stunning valleys and passes, listed since 2009 as a UNESCO World Heritage site to recognize and preserve its “exceptional natural beauty”. Inhabited by ancient civilizations, traces of which got to us thanks to the finding of the mummy Otzi, these mountains also straddle a cultural boundary that gives us the best of Italian and Austrian-German cuisine, hospitality and blended history. Our tour gives you a chance to enjoy Dolomitic landscapes, learn about the peculiar local history as well as discover hidden corners where life still flows as if tourism never got there. Spend 8 days exploring breathtaking mountain roads, pedaling through ancient forests where Nature sets the rhythm of life. All the while enjoying traditional Tyrolean meals and top quality local wines.

It was a wonderful trip and Andrea was awesome. We are already planning to try and do Croatia next year and 4 friends are looking to do the Dolomites trip based on what we have told them and our photos.Bruce C., Auckland, New Zealand – July 2018
