Enjoy Barolo Bike Tour Overview

Over these seven days, we’ll cycle  together through a magnificent landscape characterised by fertile valleys, beaufiful hills, surrounded by hazelnut trees and vineyards. We’ll pedal across the most gorgeous and evocative hamlets in the Langhe where we’ll stop for wine tastings, sampling some of the finest food and wines in Italy. We will be treated to fantastic local food and wine at our favourite trattorias and at the finest restaurants in the area. Our local bi-lingual expert crew will guide you along thoughtfully selected routes and show you the most important  attractions and those well-hidden beauty spots Piedmont  has to offer you.

Bike Tour Itinerary

Our staff will meet you at Turin Airport and will shuttle you to  your hotel in the “Langhe”, the beautiful hilly region where Barolo is produced. After a light lunch 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 following rides. This first, easy bike session will give just a glimpse of the astonishing landscapes you will explore in the days to come. After a refreshing aperitivo at one of the finest local enotecas we will toast to the amazing week ahead. We will go back to the hotel and get ready for dinner at one of the finest restaurants in Alba, the main charming village of Langhe region.
