Bike Tour Itinerary

Our staff will meet you at Venezia Airport and will accompany you to Tyrol hotel in Selva di Val Gardena. In the afternoon we‘ll be ready for our bike tune-up and a first warm up ride, also known as “sgambatella” in Italian slang, to prepare our legs for the days to come. From Selva, we will cycle along quiet roads admiring the majestic Dolomites and starting tasting what this amazing area has to offer. Once back at the hotel, after a refreshing aperitivo to toast to the amazing week ahead, we’ll be ready for our first Italian dinner.

Today we will be cycling the Sellaronda loop counterclockwise. After a gentle 5 km ascent from Selva di Val Gardena we will reach the Sellaronda ring at Plan de Gralba. Here we will start climbing until the amazing Passo Sella. After a brief stop at the top for a few pictures, we will head down towards the start of the Passo Pordoi, the highest peak of the day, reaching 2,240 meters above sea level. Once at the top, we will stop to admire the monument dedicated to Fausto Coppi before cycling down to Arabba. The third climb of the day is the Passo Campolongo, the shortest climb of the Sellaronda ring. Once in Corvara we will start approching the longest ascent, reaching the beautiful Passo Gardena before cycling down the winding road towards Selva di Val Gardena.

Today we will cycle another great loop of the Dolomites. Starting from Selva we will easily reach the Gardena Pass and set off for Campolongo, the best pass if you like to ride winding roads. It will be a long, smooth and panoramic descent that will bring us towards the start of Passo Falzarego. You will enjoy gentle gradients along the whole ascent, just a couple of straights tend to get steeper. Once you’re through the tunnel, there are just a few hundred meters before you reach the top of Passo Falzarego. You’ll notice that there is one last 1.2km ramp to climb, that will bring you to Passo Valparola: this is the most precious jewel of today’s ride. Once you’ll get there, you will discover why! Then there is an amazing and fast descent down to Corvara, where we will meet the last climb to Gardena Pass and then back to the hotel. What a day!
