DOLOMITES

Take on the legendary mountains of northern Italy in style

Enormous peaks tower above lush greenery, with perfectly smooth roads joining charming villages, one after the next. This beauty comes with a catch however, with some of the steepest and most challenging climbs going. But what goes up must come down - so expect some thrilling descents to follow. With superb Italian food and wine to indulge in each evening, this is a spectacular place to spend a week riding.
