First day – Arriving at Ramsau
You'll receive all travel documents about 14 days before departure. They contain the exact hotel address and further information. Please arrive by about 6:00 p.m. You'll meet your group and the guide. After discussing the tour, the group will go to dinner together.
Second day – From Ramsau into the Pfitscher Tal – 46 km, 1760 m elevation gain
We'll start with the first "pinnacle stage", the crossing of the Alps at the Pfitscherjoch. At first, we'll go steeply uphill on forgotten side streets. The glacier lies within reach. The view at the top makes up for the one kilometer long passage we had to push the bikes. After that, we'll fly down into Pfitscher Tal, directly to the rustic mountain inn with its sauna.
Third day – From Pfitsch to Stefansdorf – 75 km, 980 m elevation gain
Imposing castles line the Eisack Valley. Our bikes roll on ancient cart paths. We'll traverse a narrow crossroads on our way to the Pustertal and then make for Steanfsdorf in the near of Bruneck. Once there, we’ll stay in a nice wellness hotel.
Fourth day – From Stefansdorf to Fanes – 38 km, 1450 m elevation gain
The curtains rise on some of the most magnificent mountain scenery in the world. Narrow mountain roads will take us into the heart of the Dolomites. We'll stay overnight in comfortable huts located in the rocky arena of the Fanes-Sennes-Prags Nature Park at over 2000 meters altitude.
Fifth day – From Fanes to Alleghe – 48 km, 1100 m elevation gain
We'll start on the roof of the world and swing through one of the most beautiful, high-altitude valleys of the Alps. At the legendary Falzarego Pass, the Marmolada mountain is within reach. And this is only the prelude to an unforgettable day. On a steep gravel road, we'll climb the Rifugio Averau past the legendary Cinque Torri group. Then we'll enjoy one of the most spectacular trail descents in the Alps.
Sixth day – From Alleghe to Feltre – 78 km, 1050 m elevation gain
Often, there's still morning fog lying on the idyllic mountain lake in Alleghe at the foot of the mighty Monte Civetta. A little later, we'll ride secondary roads through sleepy villages and breathtaking canyons in the forgotten Valle del Mis. Just before today's destination of Feltre, we will have arrived in the opulent embrace of Italy.
Seventh day – From Feltre to Bassano del Grappa – 57 km, 1600 m evelation gain
The climb to Monte Grappa is long and varied. Utilizing "dynamite trails", we will reach the summit. After that, we'll almost fly downhill, accompanied by paragliders and hang-gliders. Farewell dinner taken together.
Eighth day – Departure
After breakfast, the bikes are loaded onto the bus. Return trip by bus back to Mayrhofen. Upon arrival, everyone travels home individually.
„For me, the Transalp Dolomiti is one of the best tours ever. The white mountains of the Dolomites in the Fanes nature park and in the Cinque Torri range are among the mountain vistas which everyone should've seen once in their life. Crossing the Alps at the Pfitscherjoch mountain pass is gigantic. However, the Monte Grappa route is the real icing on the cake. Whatever you do, don't miss it!“
