Dolomites E-Bike

Dolomites E-Bike Grand Traverse

Ride across four spectacular Dolomite valleys on an e-bike, enjoying pedal-assisted ascents over high mountain passes, long beautiful descents into deep valleys, and vistas of the jagged Dolomite peaks that surround you.

Trip Overview

Biking through the Dolomite Mountains is a truly magical experience: incredible scenery, challenging terrain, and fascinating culture. On this grand itinerary, you’ll ride through four spectacular Dolomite valleys, including the Val Pusteria, Val di Landro, Val Badia, and Val Gardena, exploring the unique blend of Italian, Austrian, and Ladin cultures. Plus, you’ll take advantage of the charming, bike-friendly hotels set in hidden, pretty valleys from which you’ll venture out each day for invigorating bike rides along rugged trails.
On this seven day E-bike itinerary, you’ll admire wild alpine meadows, deciduous and evergreen woods, high altitude lunar-like terrain, soaring peaks, dramatic walls, and towering heights. Starting in the charming town of Sesto/Sexten in Val Pusteria, you’ll ride over peaks and passes, through lush valleys, and on famous cycling routes, finishing on the vast Alpe di Siusi, set high above the Val Gardena, at the foot of the impressive Sella rock-walls. All along the way you’ll enjoy hearty meals that are representative of the incredible diversity of this region and will provide fuel for your next ascent!

On this great itinerary, enjoy the comfort of an E-bike – or electric-bicycle – where you have a re-chargeable electric motor to help you out. You just set your e-bike on the amount of pedal assistance you want – from a little to a lot – and pedal just like you would on a regular bike! And imagine your uphill rides being just as relaxed as your downhill ones; on an E-bike, you can go further and explore more terrain that you might be able on your own!
