The Dolomites

Natural architecture

Northeastern Italy is ruled by these unique limestone mountains, with their fascinating architectural shapes. In this challenging yet spectacular setting, you will bike through the terraced vineyards covering the incredibly steep slopes of Sondrio - and perhaps stop for a glass of sassella or grumello. In Bormio, you will be intrigued by the magnificent trails through the Stelvio National Park. In Canazei, don’t forget to bring along a camera and light jacket so that you can fully appreciate the mind-blowing aerial view from the cable car, before biking to Cortina d’Ampezzo, the film location for, among others, Pink Panther and James Bond movies. Up we go!
