Tour information

This bike tour, specially created for gravel bikes, is extremely varied. The starting point is the picturesque Alta Pusteria, from where you will bike to the heart of the „pale mountains“, the Dolomites with their world-famous landmark, the UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site of the Three Peaks. Their foothills will accompany you until the second last stage. Then you leave the mountains behind and cycle towards the sea. The arrival in one of the most beautiful places in the east of Veneto – Caorle – is getting closer and closer.

The first part of the tour is also the most challenging. There are some longer climbs to master. But you will always be rewarded by an unforgettable panorama. Should your legs not be up to it, there is always an easier alternative route.

Itinerary

Day 1: Alta Pusteria

Individual arrival at the hotel in Hochpustertal. Free, unguarded public car park near the hotel.

Day 2: Alta Pusteria – Prato Piazza – Cortina d’Ampezzo

(approx. 45 - 55 km, approx. 1.000 Hm or approx. 30-35 km; approx. 350 Hm)

The more challenging variant first takes you into the Braies Valley. Here you can make a detour to the idyllic Lago di Braies Lake. The stage takes you to the high plateau of Prato Piazza, with the Dürrenstein and the Hohe Gaisl towering majestically above. The route then descends along the old military road into the Höhlenstein Valley and along the old railway line „Ferrovia delle Dolomiti“ over the Cimabanche Pass to the Olympic town of Cortina d‘Ampezzo.
The easier variant leads directly along the railway track through the Höhlenstein Valley to Cortina d‘Ampezzo.

Day 3: Cortina d’Ampezzo – Belluno

(approx. 80 km, approx. 970 Hm or approx. 75 km, approx. 150 Hm)

For the more challenging variant, first follow the „Lunga Via delle Dolomiti“ cycle path along the former railway line. On the left, the view falls on the Sorapis mountain range and on the right on the rock formation of the Cinque Torri. After a steep climb, you reach Zoppè di Cadore, the highest municipality in the municipality of Belluno. From there you continue to Longarone. Longarone was completely destroyed in 1963 by a flood wave caused by a rock fall into the reservoir. Within a very short time, the village was rebuilt. You cycle past the Ponte nelle Alpi to the stage destination Belluno.
The easier variant leads you along the cycle path to Pieve di Cadore, Longarone and then to Belluno.

Day 4: Belluno - Pieve di Soligo/Susegana

(approx.. 85 km, approx. 1200 Hm or approx. 60 km, approx. 300 Hm)

Bei der anspruchsvolleren Variante erreichen Sie nach einem längeren Anstieg gleich am Beginn das bekannte Hochplateau Nevegal. Dabei begeben Sie sich auf die Spuren des Giro d’Italia – 2011 führte dieser von Belluno hoch nach Nevegal. Von dort können Sie den Santa Croce und den Morto See sehen. Entlang des Bergkammes genießen Sie ein beeindruckendes 360° Panorama. Im Norden können Sie noch die Dolomiten sehen und bei guter Sicht können Sie im Süden schon die blaue Adria erkennen. Sie radeln umgeben von Weinbergen weiter nach Süden durch die Proseccoregion. Ein Highlight der heutigen Etappe ist die Molinetta della Croda, eine alte Wassermühle aus dem 17.Jahrhundert. Anschließend radeln Sie weiter ins Etappenziel Pieve di Soligo/ Susegana. Den Abend lassen Sie am besten gemütlich mit einem guten Glas Wein ausklingen.

Bei der leichteren Variante bleiben Sie im Tal und radeln durch hügeliges Gelände zuerst am Lago di Santa Croce vorbei und dann ebenfalls durch die Proseccogegend ins Etappenziel.

Day 5: Pieve di Soligo - Caorle

(approx. 85 km, approx. 250 Hm)

There is only one option for this stage. The route takes you along the Piave. You have almost left the mountains behind - it continues hilly in the direction of Nervesa della Battaglia. You leave the Montello nature reserve. On the way to the lagoon beaches, the town of Noventa di Piave is particularly popular with cyclists to take a break, as there are good shopping opportunities with fashion and sports outlets.
The stage continues to the beaches of the Venice lagoon.
You will pass by Eraclea. The Pineta di Eraclea pine forest is one of the largest pine forests on the Adriatic coast and it is located directly behind the seashore. Eraclea Mare is also known for its beautiful flat sandy beach and the dunes behind the beach.
At the end of the stage, you will reach Caorle, one of the most picturesque towns in eastern Veneto.

Day 6: "culture or relax day" in Caorle

Caorle has beautiful golden sandy beaches, many places of historical, cultural and scenic interest, but also ideal opportunities for relaxing and entertainment.
The historic centre of Caorle is divided into two halves, around which dozens of narrow alleys wind. The atmosphere you experience when strolling through the alleyways is unique at any time of the year. In the old town, just a few metres from the sea, stands an ancient cathedral and next to it the very special cylindrical bell tower, built in 1100, both in Romanesque style. In front of the cathedral square, there is a beautiful and unique seafront promenade lined with stones, known as „Scogliera Viva“ (Living Cliffs). One of the most important buildings in Caorle is the church of the Madonna dell‘Angelo, a small church right by the sea.

Day 7: Caorle or excursion to Jesolo or Venice

(approx. 25 km till Jesolo, approx. 67 km till Venice)
