Culinary Multi-Sport Tour in the Dolomites
The Dolomites represent the Best of Italy - majestic peaks and mountain meadows, diverse regional cuisine based on local specialties, and amazing wines made with rediscovered indigenous varietals. The ski lift systems allow easy access to spectacular hikes; flat well-maintained bike paths welcome cyclists of all levels to explore.
Our Dolomites hike and bike tour offers a week long adventure in the Dolomites, where you can experience all the wonderful activities this region has to offer - hiking along mountain trails, cycling through scenic valleys, gourmet dining, a hands on cooking class, private wine tasting and a winery tour.
