Always wish you could just take off on your bike up to the mountain tops and across mountain pastures in Italy?  Well you can! Join us and experience one of the most beautiful bike-tours in the Dolomites. 

Using Alta Badia as our “base camp,” we’ll set out each day on dirt and gravel roads to explore the region. We’ll experience the traditional Ladin culture of the Alta Badia Valley, visit the Santa Croce Sanctuary and Fannes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park, and explore the chic Venitian town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, all in just five days!  Plus, enjoy hearty meals and local specialties, lunches at charming rifugios, and a comfortable “bike friendly” hotel to relax in at the end of each day.

The Dolomites are nothing short of a mountain biker’s paradise, and on this quick mountain biking getaway, we’re sure you’ll see why!

     Molto Bene!
    Great views, great places to stay, great food/drink and even great weather.....you were able to accommodate a 15 month old as well as the over 50 crowd.  Lots of logistics for you to manage and it was well done.  We'll have great, fun memories of your beautiful country and we'll be talking about this trip for a long time. Please use me as a positive reference for your company any time.
