Dolomites E-Bike

E-Bike Heart of the Dolomites

Traverse the Dolomites on an electric mountain bike, from Alta Badia to Cortina and back! On an E-bike, the pedal assist allows you to explore further in these mountains than you could on your own steam.

Trip Overview

The Dolomites offer a tremendous opportunity for bikers of all abilities: incredible scenery, challenging terrain, and fascinating culture. And on an E-bike – or electric-bicycle – 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.
On this seven-day E-biking itinerary, you’ll explore the Val Badia, Plan de Corones, Prato Piazza, Fanes-Sennes-Braies Natural Park, and Cortina d’Ampezzo, including the Cinque Torri area. Beginning in Alta Badia, the heart of the Dolomites both geographically and culturally, you’ll move to a different hotel each night before returning to Alta Badia at the end of the trip. Charming bike-friendly hotels, set in hidden, pretty valleys, are the perfect accommodation to enjoy the unique blend of Italian, Austrian, and Ladin cultures and cuisine!
Each day of your trip you’ll venture out for invigorating bike rides along rugged trails. Throughout you’ll admire wild alpine meadows, deciduous and evergreen woods, high altitude lunar-like terrain, soaring peaks, and dramatic walls towering above you. All along the way you’ll enjoy hearty meals that are representative of the incredible diversity of this region, and will provide motivation for your next ascent!

You just set your e-bike on the amount of assistance you want – from a little to a lot, pedal just like you would on a regular bike, and off you go! 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.

Want to learn more about our Mountain Inns & Rifugi?            
Rifugi – or mountain huts in English – are the classic accommodation for hikers, climbers, mountaineers, and ski mountaineers in the Alps. Set in spectacular locations high in the Dolomites, rifugi are accessible only on foot (with a few exceptions that are reachable by car). These marvelous establishments are open primarily in the summer, with a select few in winter, and offer meals and sleeping facilities.

The Dolomite rifugi are considered the best in the Alps. While some are dormitory style with bunk beds, many meet the standard of a simple guest house with private rooms and en-suite bathrooms, and each has its own unique character and charm. Bedding and linens are provided, hot showers are available, and meals are served in common dining areas – like a small mountain inn set high in the mountains with the most incredible vistas in the Dolomites. Whether you’re hiking in summer or skiing in winter, an overnight rifugio stay is not to miss on a Dolomite holiday.
