Northern Italy is diverse and breathtaking and infused with cycling culture. Our Northern Italian location provides you with an exclusive opportunity to ride in the adjacent regions of Lake Garda and the Dolomites. One trip – two unique locations, where you will truly experience some of the best and most beautiful cycling in Italy. We’ll take care of all the details so that your transition from the lake to the mountains is stress-free and seamless. Explore the Lake Garda region with its backdrop of mountains, reflected in the crystal-clear waters of the lake, discover secret routes through the hilly vineyards of Valpolicella and end the days relaxing with a glass of our local wine. Then… the Dolomites! Where wilderness and the beauty of the mountains blend into the idyllic green fields, pastures and small villages. There is no better way to enjoy these two regions of Italy than by bike. Two unique and beautiful locations in one trip – we’ll arrange all the details for you, so you can just enjoy the best cycling Italy has to offer.
Upon your arrival in Italy, we will pick you up at the airport and take you to Peschiera del Garda, located on Lake Garda, where you will spend 3 or more days at Garda Bike Hotel, cycling with Nicola, Alberto and our experienced local guides. We’ll ride along the lake, through the vineyards and into the mountains on quiet, scenic routes that we have developed and offer the best cycling in our area.
Then, we’ll drive you to the Dolomites, a completely different landscape, yet less than 3 hours away. You’ll be accompanied by a Garda Bike Hotel guide, who will take care of the group and lead rides through the famous mountains of the Sella Ronda. We partner with several three- and four-star bike friendly hotels in the area, and we assure you that you will be very comfortable and well fed in the authentic mountain hotels that we have selected, near the best riding of the area.
We offer a tailor made, stress free cycling holiday, where we take care of all the details and take care of you as well! Some of the benefits of our dual location trip include:
> A CUSTOMIZED TRANSFER between Garda and the Dolomites. You can opt to ride in Garda in the morning, shower, have lunch and then make the transfer to the Dolomites later in the day, if you wish. It’s up to you. There is no rush and our driver is ready when you are. We’ll do whatever it takes to help you maximize your cycling time.
> Option for a partial VAN TRANSFER and a CLIMB over scenic PASSO DELLE ERBE by bike, cycling the rest of the way to your Dolomites location.
> Your Lake Garda BIKE GUIDE will also be your guide in the Dolomites. They’ll take care of you for your entire trip.
> You can CUSTOMIZE YOUR TIME in the Dolomites with your guide, riding as long or as little as you like, deciding day by day.
> Renting a Bike? We’ll let you ride the same PINARELLO BIKE RENTAL (various models available) in BOTH LOCATIONS, saving time on bike fitting and allowing you to get comfortable for the trip on “your” bike.
> In the Dolomites, your GUIDE will be AVAILABLE to you all DAY & EVENING. So, if you want to explore the area after the ride, your guide is available to drive you by van.
> We have several HOTEL PARTNERS in the Dolomites, all selected because of their proximity to great riding, along with nearby leisure activities post-cycling.
> We ensure that all our HOTEL PARTNERS will provide the same cycling specific amenities as Garda Bike Hotel, such as cycling kit laundry service, a bike room, meals.

The Dolomites mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2009, lie in the northern Italian Alps, with 18 peaks rising above 3.000 metres. Characterized by vertical walls, sheer cliffs, and narrow long valleys, the area creates a distinctive landscape of exceptional natural beauty. During our trip, we will stay near the famous Sella Ronda Bike route and visit villages like Corvara and Badia, where you are surrounded by both the beauty of nature and the Ladin culture. We’ll spend 3 days riding the Sella Ronda as well as other routes through these most beautiful and special mountains, with support and guidance from Garda Bike Hotel.
Corvara is located at 1,568 m (5,144 ft) above sea level in a sunny valley at the foot of Mount Sassongher. Corvara has a long and proud tradition of tourism. In both winter and summer, its unique location at the Sella Ronda, makes Corvara ideal for active holidays.
Whether on skis in winter or a road or mountain bike in summer, the tour around the Sella massif will be the highlight of your holiday.
When you are not on the mountain having fun on your bike, Corvara is a lively little town, with plenty of restaurants, shops and cafes to take in during a stroll about town.
