Mainly set on mountain roads, this tour in the majestic Italian Alps stretches over 11 full days in the saddle on a west to east route from Piedmont across to South Tyrol. It’s a ride through breathtaking high-mountain landscapes and thriving passes. Entirely on tarmacked but often highly challenging mountain roads that will reach the altitude of 3,000 meters (9,800 feet) above sea level, this tour contains many tight bends and hairpins with some very narrow and difficult sections of road.
In other words, a spectacular tour for expert bikers on mountain roads, which means technical difficulties but also beautiful breathtaking scenery. Our itinerary includes some 30 passes, including the legendary Stelvio (2758 m above sea level with 40 + 48 turns) and the equally famous Gavia, Bernina, Falzarego, Tonale, Sella, Pordoi, Giau … and about fifteen magnificent lakes (Major, Como, Guard, Cancano, Resia, …).
But the last days in a “gentler” context, packed with amazing towns to visit, will conquer your romantic and artistic mood as well.
