Dolomites – based in one Hotel
The valley - cycling paths of the Alta Pusteria

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 7 days
Distance: 200 - 230 km
Landscape:

At the foot of the Dolomites you cycle without meeting steep inclines, along well built valley cycle paths, among which are also the classic “Drava/Drau bicycle path”. Lake Toblacher See, the view to the Drei Zinnen (Three Peaks), as well as typical towns will stay in your memory for a long time.

From your hotel in Hochpustertal you leave every day for your bicycle tour. The programme gives you space for an individual organisation of the stages and guarantees fun for all cyclists, equal if athletic ambitious or “pleasure-seeking”. The bicycle tour leads you into side valleys of the Hochpustertal to Sesto and Casies and on the old Dolomites railway track from Cortina d’Ampezzo to Dobbiaco.
Ideal for families; it runs consistently on valley cycle paths without steep inclines. On the most days there is the possibility to choose independently the desired length of route and to adapt according to this the transfer by minibus or train. In addition for convenience you can take a day of rest. There are more demanding routes for experienced bikers. The overnight stay is intended always in the same hotel in Hochpustertal (Villabassa/Niederdorf or Toblach/Dobbiaco).
