What's Included

Your Dolomites Trip

Day 1Arrive into Venice

Touch down in Venice and we’ll be waiting to take you to your hotel. The journey is about 2 and a half hours and its isolation is what keeps cyclists coming back to the Dolomites year after year. Check in, relax and make full use of the spa.

Day 2The Sella Ronda

Your trip can be entirely tailored and we will provide a variety of routes for you to enjoy. As an introduction to riding in the Dolomites, we suggest you ride the Sella Ronda. This is a circular route literally, round the Sella. It takes in the Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella and Gardena climbs and is one the most spectacular routes you can ride.

Day 3The Maratona dles Dolomites Middle Section

We recommend riding the middle section of the Maratona route today which is about 50km, or if tagged to the Sella Ronda, is just over 100km. You will start by riding up the Campolongo again, but this time you will turn left at Arabba. You will then enjoy a fairly flat section with a little descending before you arrive at the Passo Falzarego. You will climb the Falzarego and then the short sharp section of the Valporola, before descending down through Armentarola and San Cassiano before you ride back into Corvara.

Day 4The Giau

You can’t ride in the Dolomites and not ascend the Giau. 10km at 10% with no respite provides for an incredibly tough climb and there’s plenty of riding and climbing before you get to it. Once you summit and descend, you have to come back up the northern side of the Falzarego and the summit the Valparola. This is a tough route climbing over 2,500m.

Day 5Departure

Check out and catch a transfer back to Venice or if you want to extend our holiday, just ask us.

What to ExpectFrom breathtaking views to friendly locals

There are no flat landscapes in the Dolomites, you’re either pushing hard up the climbs or revelling in thrilling descents. The climbs are magnificent as they wind through this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With most climb averaging relatively shallow gradients, you can really get into a rhythm. Other than the Passo Giau, no climb is too difficult but what makes this such a great place to ride is the plethora of climbs in a short area. The descents are thrilling and the views over the rugged Dolomites offer some of the most panoramic views in Europe. Our favourite climb is the Falzarego, which showcases incredible views across the valley below. Fans of descending will enjoy the awesome 10 km freewheel from Arabba to Cernadoi.

This trip is self guided although we are able to organise guiding and support on any of our cycling tours in Italy.
