Dolomites, Italy, August 3, 2011 – Dolomite Mountains srl (http://dolomitemountains.com/en/home.htm), an Italian company bent on proving that the adventure path reveals some of the most beautiful natural settings on earth, announces a new mountain biking trip through Italy’s Dolomite Mountains that follows the route of the Südtirol Sellaronda HERO, an international sporting event akin to Tour de France.
The 8 day / 7 night trip at EU1,650 per person double provides guests one day on the actual Sellaronda course biking at their own pace. The trip begins and ends in Alta Badia and is scheduled for Aug. 28 to Sep. 4, 2011. This trip is also available as a custom group departure on dates of a guest’s choosing.
The actual Südtirol Sellaronda HERO competition is held annually in early July, drawing more than 1,500 bikers from 27 countries. Traditionally the course has only been open to an elite few, noted Agustina Lagos-Marmol, owner of Dolomite Mountains srl.
“Our clients are cyclists of all levels and they have expressed interest in experiencing the Sellaronda in a supported environment so we have added this element to one of our mountain bike itineraries. It is a great opportunity for bikers to be part of one of the greatest bike courses in the world,” she said.
Each day participants will cycle from hotel to hotel (or rifugio to rifugio), taking in the Dolomites from all different angles and perspectives. Riders will visit the valleys of Alta Badia and Cortina d’Ampezzo and experience their different cultures, traditions and cuisine. The Dolomites are home to Italian, Austrian and Ladin peoples whose history will be revealed along with artifacts ranging from medieval castles to World War I bunkers.
The price includes double accommodations in “bike friendly” hotels and mountain inns, most meals, professional mountain bike guide, local transportation, luggage transfer during the trip and detailed map of the area.) Mountain bikes can be provided on request.
