Welcome to the ultimate cycling adventure in the heart of the Italian Alps! Begin your journey by arriving in the charming town of Bormio, where you’ll have the option to cycle a warm-up tour called Laghi di Cancano, covering 30 kilometers and 750 meters of elevation. This is the perfect way to get your legs warmed up before the real challenge begins.

Get ready to conquer the most famous climb in the Dolomites – the Stelvio Pass. With its stunning views and challenging gradients, this 2,757-meter climb is the second-highest pass in the Alps and is a must-do for any serious cyclist.

Next, it’s time to take on the Passo Gavia – another epic climb that will test your limits and reward you with breathtaking views after you gain 1363 altitude meters over the course of 17.3 kilometers.

And if you’re up for an extra challenge, you can choose to extend your trip by one more day and tackle the Mortirolo Pass, known as one of the toughest climbs in Europe.

Throughout your journey, you’ll have the chance to experience the local culture and cuisine, stay in cozy accommodations, and enjoy delicious meals. And with our professional guidance, you can focus on the ride and leave the logistics to us.
