Cycling holidays in the Dolomites

On the saddle! Ready, steady, go!

Discover Braies and the Three Peaks Dolomite region from a totally different perspective. Which means on the saddle! But not on horseback: on two wheels. With your city bike, mountain bike, or e-bike, you will be able to go up and down mountains and through fields, at a slow pace and without struggling, or as fast as you can, testing yourself while pumping your adrenaline. Both alternatives will be just as exciting. Which tour do you prefer, and how would you like to spend your cycling holiday in the South Tyrol Dolomites?

As a family excursion, we strongly recommend the Drava Cycling path to Lienz. It's mostly paved, and therefore also suitable for the least energetic among us. The day starts in the best way for all cycling enthusiasts - and for those who want to have a go -, with our ample breakfast, well stocked with natural fruit juices, muesli bars and fresh fruit to take with you (packed lunch: 7 Euro).
Your bikes will be safe in our bicycle rack in front of the hotel, or in our garage.

Dolomiti Superbike –
The bicycle race with captial R in the Upper Puster Valley

Do you have any plans for July? Each year, the South Tyrol Dolomite Superbike, the most demanding mountain bike race of Italy, comes to the five municipalities of the Upper Puster Valley, giving all participants and spectators the chance to enjoy a varied activity program and the spectacular views of the Dolomites. Athletes have to tackle the 119 km journey on their bikes, or they can choose the shorter route of only 59 km. A "Kids Trophy" is also on the grab for the younger ones.
