Overview

The adventure begin from the untouched Tires valley, half an hour drive from Bolzano. Start your day while the morning sun climbs the shoulders of Catinaccio mountain, cycle in harmony across larch trees, fields&crops. Tiny old villages and castles will show you the way north to Castelrotto medieval town before entering Gardena valley. Puez-Odle Natural Park and Alta Badia now awaits you with some of the most iconic peaks of the whole region. Feel like a Giro d’Italia pro while climbing the legendary Pordoi Pass, but please remember your real nature: that of a Gravel Grinder! Enjoy off-road fun again with a glimpse over Marmolada glacier, go downhill to Fassa valley and then again, climb in silence reaching Alpe di Siusi. This is the largest European highland were lucky cows lives at the foot of the impressive shape of the Sassopiatto mountain.

Gravel in the Dolomites

Live the real Alpine Gravel Experience

Your wheels will bite all sort of things. Wear the widest tyre and gear range you can. Tubeless is highly recommended.

We propose off-road itineraries designed for Gravel Bikes. All our routes are made roughly 70% of gravel roads, 20% of mule-paths and singletracks, 10% of paved roads. Some itineraries have some non-cycling sections and for a short while you will have to walk your bike. Sometimes is really necessary to pass from one valley to the next without loose all you have gained climbing.Use proper shoes, with a stiff sole but good for walking in off-the-bike sections (including to reach the bar of a mountain hut for istance).
