Italy, Dolce Vita

All-Mountain in Italy

Tucked up in north-western Italy, just down from Monaco is the spectacular coastal mountainous region of Liguria. The area is known for its white sandy beaches, delicious authenic cuisine, picturesque little towns overlooking the Mediterranean – and its' sun drenched trails. Our Dolce Vita trip is buffet of the region's best enduro rides orchestrated by the best guide in the region (in our humble opinion!), a Swede who's the current EWS World Master Champion (2019), a mother of two, and a fantastic host and person. Expect a unique Italian experience with a touch of Swedish organization that we’re confident that you'll enjoy.
