The Stelvio, the Gavia and the mountain passes of the Dolomites are legendary destinations for cyclists worldwide. These epic peaks are also icons of the northern Italian regions where they are located.  The inhabitants of these regions, with their varied cultures, histories and languages, all share a love and respect for nature in this unique landscape. Bormio, with its dark and grim peaks, and Alta Badia, surrounded by the softness of the pale mountains, form the backdrop of La Pedalata. More than a simple tour, La Pedalata is an experience in which cyclists connect with these majestic mountains.


In 2024, we're thrilled to introduce «La Pedalata» in collaboration with «CycloSportive». This week-long cycling adventure spans six nights, starting and ending in Bormio. From there, you will first conquer the breathtaking Passo Gavia, Passo del Tonale, and Passo della Mendola. The second stage begins with a descent from Passo Mendola, passing through Caldaro and Bolzano before tackling the steep ascent of Laion. You'll climb through Val Gardena to the summit of Passo Gardena and then descend to Alta Badia at the Hotel Melodia del Bosco.

The next day, you can choose to enjoy a well-deserved rest day or take on the Fodom loop tour, reveling in breathtaking panoramic views.

On the fifth day, it's time to retrace your route back to Bormio. We head towards Passo Gardena, then face the short ascent of Passo Pinei, followed by a descent all the way to Bolzano before reaching Merano. Last but not least, the iconic Passo dello Stelvio awaits you on the final stage after cycling along the Val Venosta. After a fulfilling week of cycling and conquering over 12,000 meters of elevation gain, you'll return to Bormio.


Your adventure will be carefree, thanks to the presence of an experienced guide and the support of an assistance van that will also transport your luggage
