Trip Information

Our most challenging Italian road cycling tour takes us through the Italian Alps and into the mighty Dolomites.
Huge castles, vineyards and dramatic mountain peaks mark the far north of Italy as a genuinely special riding destination. It’s a dramatic setting with the high Alps of Austria to the north and the Swiss Alps to the east and it is here that the Giro d’Italia showcases some of the most challenging and thrilling mountain riding in the world of professional cycling.
Our tour takes in the most spectacular of these mountains and, of course, their legendary climbs. Starting our week in the spa town of San Pellegrino Terme near Bergamo in the Alps, our introductory climb is Passo San Marco which taking us up a almost 2,000m above sea level for the first of many times.
During the course of the next few days things get progressively tougher as we dig deeper into the mountains. An early highlight is the Mortirolo, a climb once described by Lance Armstrong as hardest he’d ever ridden.
More classic climbs, including Passo Gavia (2,620m) and the legendary Passo Stelvio (2,758m), follow in quick succession before we transition into the Dolomites via the Adige Valley. Once amongst their spectacular limestone peaks we take on the 4 passes of the Sella Ronda, possibly the most spectacular loop ride in the whole of the Italy.
Later we conquer Passo Rolle and Passo Valles as we make our way to the mountain resort town of San Martino di Castrozza. For a grand finale we take on the 30 km ascent of Monte Grappa (1,775m) before completing our adventure in the lively town of Bassano del Grappa.
