Giro Dolomiti

Few places in the World have the richness of cycling heritage that exists in the Italian Alps & the Dolomites. From the duels of Coppi & Bartali to the captivating climbing of Marco Pantani and the spectacular descending of Vicenzo Nibali, in these mountains some of the greatest days, hours & moments in cycle sport have played out.

Cycling in the Dolomites, Italy


Now it can be your turn to make your own history. Ahead of you lie the iconic climbs of Passo Stelvio, Passo Gavia & Passo Mortirolo. Long, steep and leg-sapping, simply summiting can create memories to last a lifetime.
Over a 7-night itinerary you’ll have the opportunity to ride through breathtaking scenery in a region which lives and breathes the Giro d’Italia. In addition to ‘The Big Three’ climbs, we’ll also visit Bormio & St Moritz, skirt Lake Como and climb to the legendary cyclists’ chapel at Madonna di Ghisallo.

Day-by-day itinerary
Day 1 (a.m.) – arrive to Milan, Malpensa airport. Rendezvous with PyrActif staff.
Day 1 (p.m.) – minibus transfer to Como. Warm-up ride alongside Lake Como to our overnight hotel in the beautiful town of Bellaggio.
Days 2 & 3 – after a short ferry ride across the lake, we'll then spend two days ridng via the town of Chiavenna and the passes of Spluga, Maloja, Bernina & Foscagno to arrive to the iconic mountain town of Bormio. .
Day 4 – your opportunity to climb the legendary Passo Stelvio (2760m). We'll ascend first from the Bormio side & then if you're feeling strong you can descend to Prato di Stelvio and tackle the other side of this most historic of Italian climbs.

Day 5 - Rider's Choice / rest day
Day 6 – looped ride out of Bormio to tackle the super-challenging Mortirolo and the less steep, but still intimidating Passo Gavia.
Day 7 – minibus transfer back towards Lake Como, followed by the ascent to the cyclists' chapel at Madonna di Ghisallo. We'll then drive back to a hotel close to Milan, Malpensa airport. Arrival time at the airport will be around 6 p.m., so you can choose a late evening flight or be conveniently located on-site for morning departures the next day.
