Mountain Biking in the Italian Dolomites
"The most beautiful mountains on the planet” described famous climber Reinhold Messner of the Dolomites. When you lay eyes on them you’ll agree, their rocky limestone spires pierce the skies while soft flowered grassy valleys are dotted with picture perfect mountain towns. For history enthusiasts, this trip is a ride back in time as we literally pedal down trenches and past sighs from World War I. We'll traverse some of the highest bikeable passes in the Dolomites via Unesco World Heritage designated Alta Badia, Sella, Val di Fassa, Alleghe, San Martino di Castrozza and Cortina d’Ampezzo. Add the stunningly perched mountain rifugios that we’ll call home for the night and delicious Italian cuisine and cappuccino stops and you’ve got one hell of a great mountain bike trip. If that’s not enough, the stats: 225km distance (140 miles), 6100m climbed (20,013 ft), 15,000m epic descents (49,212 ft), 85% singletrack, 12 lifts, 7 shuttles. Dolomighty is the best of the best in the Italian Dolomites.
