This trip is designed for cyclists who want the maximum challenge, cyclists who love to climb or cyclists who just really want to experience the iconic mountain cycling routes in Italy’s Dolomites and Alps Mountain ranges.

After a few days in beautiful Lake Garda, the next part of your trip will be spent in the indescribable and incredible Dolomites. A mountain range like no other, this magical place is a utopia for cycling, with stunning views at every turn in the road. And in the Dolomites,  you will have a riding experience that is required for any serious cyclist who loves to climb: the famous Maratona dles Dolomites.  Is it difficult and challenging?  Yes!  It is unique and breath-taking. Yes! Will it be awe-inspiring and life changing? Yes! and Yes!

We’ll ensure your entry to this event, which sells out year after year.  Two of our professional guides will be your ride leaders and will accompany you throughout the Dolomites, making sure you are well taken care of. 

With three distances to choose from (Sella Ronda Course, 55km – Middle Course, 106km – Maratona Couse, 138km) all three courses of the Maratona will have you conquering the famous Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella and Gardena passes. The shortest route includes 1,780 meters of climbing while the longest course tackles 4,230 vertical metres for a truly epic ride. You’ll feel the excitement when you ride as one of 9000 cyclists, with the entire course closed to traffic. The organisation of this event is second to none.

You’ll stay and relax at your choice of 4- and 5-star hotels, all in the beautiful mountain town of Corvara, and very convenient to the ride start and finish line.  

As exciting as the Maratona is, there is more! After the Maratona, we leave the next day and spend 3 days in the Italian Alps, with a focus on climbing the iconic Stelvio, with its 48 hairpin turns.  With our custom package the experience doesn’t begin or end with the Maratona or the Stelvio, but also includes beautiful hotels, gorgeous scenery, gourmet wine and dining and of course, more fabulous cycling.
