Road bike Around the Dolomites
Road bike tour at the food of UNESCO world heritage

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 7 days
Distance: 495 - 540 km
Landscape:

The Dolomites are your constant companions during this round tour at the foot of the legendary “PALE MOUNTAINS”, on the list of UNESCO world heritage due to their “unique monumental beauty”. A marvellous landscape with bizarre rock formations, crystal clear lakes and flourishing fruit- and wine yards are waiting to be enjoyed.

Start point of this tour is the valley Hochpustertal, demarcating the Dolomites towards the North. Then you continue along the Eisacktal and Etschtal Valleys, forming the west boarder, passing South Tyrol’s capital Bolzano and reaching Trento. On the southern part of the Dolomites you will cycle through the Valsugana Valley to Feltre. The former Dolomites railway track will lead you into the direction of the Olympic town Cortina d’Ampezzo. Finally you will greet the famous Three Peaks from the Höhlensteintal and you turn back to the Hochpustertal.
Sporty cycling tour for road bikers with a basic training on little trafficked roads (except during high season July/August).
