First day – Arriving at Obernberg / Austria
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 Obernberg to Mauls – 50 km, 1100 m elevation gain
Riding the border ridge road, our tour starts off with a bang as we conquer the main ridge of the Alps. The ascent to Mussolini’s fortress world is difficult, but the military road reveals unique panoramas. We reach our destination via a mix of dynamite trails, forest paths and small secondary roads. We'll stay in a romantic hotel, enjoying the best cuisine.
Third day – From Mauls to Brixen – 40 km, 1200 m elevation gain
In the morning, the 2000 meter high Valler Jöchl awaits its conquerors. Once we've reached the top, we'll have a glorious view of all the peaks of the Dolomites. We'll take a break at South Tyrol's most beautiful mountain hut, then we'll enjoy every inch of our descent into the Eisac Valley. We'll stay overnight in a 4-star hotel located in the historic old town of Brixen.
Fourth day – From Brixen to St. Ulrich / Grödnertal – 40 km, 1100 m elevation gain
On hidden forest trails, we'll work our way to Klausen with its idyllic old town. The climb afterwards gives way to more gorgeous panoramas. After a lunch break in the typical Buschenschank (mixture of tavern + restaurant), we'll take the Poststeig path to Val Gardena. We'll stay the night in a solid 3-star hotel with sauna.
Fifth day – From St. Ulrich to Tiers am Rosengarten – 51 km, 1100 m elevation gain
The cable car takes us right up to the legendary Seiser Alm meadow. Thus we'll have plenty of time to enjoy the most beautiful mountains of the Dolomites: the Seceda, Geisler, Sella, Sasso Lungo, Piatto and Schlern. In this grand setting, we’ll ride along the Völser Weiher on our way to today's destination, a hotel in Tiers featuring good cuisine.
Sixth day – From Tiers to Lake Karer – 30 km, 1200 m elevation gain
After a first nice singletrack we'll have to really crank it as we head 700 meters up on our way to the Nigerpass. The massif of the Rosengarten group lies in front of us. The hut where we'll stop for lunch is located like an eagle's nest directly above the steep rock walls. From here, the view ranges from the Ortler almost to Lake Garda - simply breathtaking. We'll reach our destination early: A 4-star sport hotel with all the comforts and a view.
Seventh day – From Karer See to Auer – 57 km, 1000 m elevation gain
The blue-green of the legendary Karersee and the white cliffs of the Latemar compose the morning's backdrop. Upon ascending the Lavazèjoch, we'll reach a rustic Italian mountain hut. Then we'll say our farewells to the Dolomites and roll on a railway line down to the Adige Valley. The wine-growing town Auer is our goal. We'll enjoy a multi-course farewell dinner.
Eighth day – Departure
After breakfast, the bikes are loaded onto the bus. Return trip by bus back to Obernberg. Upon arrival, everyone travels home individually.
„Rarely does one discover a tour that's as ideal as our Transalp South Tyrol. No stage has more than 1200 meters elevation gain. The paths offer the choice between a technically more difficult or an easier variant. Since 'trails' aren't at the top of every biker's list, we offer the tour on different dates in these two versions. The regular version picks out just the highlights. As an alternative, the 'South Tyrol trail' we ride on the trail date doesn't leave out any of the difficult sections.“
