In a nutshell

How about entering in a movie setting and sit proudly astride your bike looking for the best singles in the Dolomites, your snout and ears flapping in the wind like an English setter ? Here you go, this trip is for you. A mountain range and scenery simply unique in the world ! "Tofane", "Tre Cime" or "Cinque Torri" are the names of the dizzying limestone towers that stand high up in gentle green sunny valleys. So what about the biking ? Everything just is so Dolomythical: technical, edgy, others easy riding... such varied terrain, you'll definitely have the time of your life on your e-bike.

There's more about it than that ? Really ? For sure: the Italian way of life is well present but the Austrian isn't far away, we retrieve this cultural mix in the food, the language as well as in the architecture.

Let's face it: we love the Dolomites, winter and summer. In the summer, e-biking is the best way to make the most of this area and tickle emblematic summits or pedal alongside the most beautiful lakes.

Just one drawback to biking in the Dolomites: you'll fall in love with this place !

Pros

- Comfy accommodation including one night in a mountain hut, closer to the "Cime"

- Italian gastronomy and hospitality to recover from hard e-biking days

- Magnificent scenery and single trails, unique in the world

- Good overview of the entire mountain range, so little known yet so majestic

- Heaps of technical advice that will help you be more at ease

Please note this itinerary is an example of a mountain biking trip and course in the Italian Dolomites and surroundings. The guide may adjust certain itineraries according to weather conditions, cable cars and mountain hut accessibilty as well as participants' abilities. We kindly ask you to respect such decision. 

In case practices and customs defined by the local authorities change, estimating the reasonable number of clients per guide, for safety reasons, Azimut respects these, even last minute, decisions and recommendations. Such cases are rare and mostly related to exceptional conditions in the mountains. Therefore some compensation may be requested from your side due to less participants per guide.

How technical does it get ? How fit should I be ?

Skill level ***

You should be at ease with long and demanding descents. You're able to deal with hairpin bends and tackle back-breaking inclines, master your brakes, hop over small tricky sections (tree roots, rocks, steps). Descents are often long and sustained (but progressive as the week goes on), sometimes steep, often technically demanding, sometimes exposed sections but rarely dangerous. You'll end being an expert rider or maybe even an ace in mountain biking skills !

Stamina level **

For keen and passionate mountain bikers or sporty people, who enjoy making efforts and regularly do an outdoor activity. We will ride on progressive 4x4 tracks and may encounter some steep sections. Expect ascents between + 600 m & + 1400 m approx per day, easily feasable on an e-mountain bike.

Good to know: if you don't have the skills and stamina required, the guide may ask you to leave the group for the well-being of the rest of the group. If any doubt, please do not hesitate to ask us !
