Details

Italy provides some of the most iconic and challenging mountains you can climb on a bike.

The Italian Alps are host to some of the most iconic and challenging mountains that you could hope to climb on a bike. The Passo dello Stelvio, Passo di Gavia and Passo di Mortirolo are three of the most epic climbs and in our opinion, legendary – they often feature in the Giro d’Italia!  Stelvio Pass Cycling is challenging but it’s so rewarding and a must-do bucket list item!

Conquer these unrivalled passes and more during our 7-night Stelvio pass road cycling holiday through the iconic Italian Alps to add to your list of cycling achievements. Overcome some of the most challenging, yet visually stunning peaks during the tour with the opportunity to become one of the few who have climbed Stelvio from all three sides in a single day (optional!).

Our Stelvio Pass cycling trip is the ultimate Italian bike break. The entire week is based in beautiful Bormio at the foot of the almighty Stelvio, surrounded by majestic mountain passes that you’ll have the chance to tackle during the week. We’ve carefully selected the hotel due to its incredible comfort, superb cuisine and high-quality bike facilities. Family-run, this hotel has been in the same family since first opening its doors several generations ago. You’ll be treated to a cosy, welcoming atmosphere, with peace of mind that the staff really go out of their way to look after us cyclists. 

At the end of a day spent up on the Stelvio Pass cycling, you can retire back to the hotel, spending some time in the lounge with a cold beer or glass of wine, or pop by the sauna to relax or indulge in a massage to help relieve aching muscles.

This is a challenging but very rewarding week of cycling surrounded by some of the finest views in the Italian Alps.

The week includes:
— 7 Nights Half Board accommodation on a twin share basis in our carefully selected Badia based hotel
— A superb gourmet 5 course evening meal each evening & high quality breakfast
— 5 days guided and vehicle supported cycling with an experienced team
- Fresh fruit each day and top up sports nutrition in support vehicle
