Bends and breathtaking views
Distance: 173 km
The ideal route for switchback lovers with 60 hairpin bends of the Pordoi pass, the majesty of the Sella range, the Catinaccio and the Erbe pass.
Where to stop: Lake Carezza definitely deserves a brief stop to admire its beautiful colours. Another recommended stop is a visit to the picturesque villages of Fiè allo Sciliar, Castelrotto and Siusi where you can take a shortcut to reach the Alpe di Siusi, a place with enchanting landscape.
Agordino, Val Belluna and the Queen of the Dolomites
Distance: 197 Km
A trail full of mountains, among three of the best known in the Dolomites: Monte Pelmo, Monte Civetta and Marmolada, the popular “Queen of the Dolomites”.
Where to stop: stopping in Belvedere – 19 km after you depart – you can enjoy an enchanting view of the artificial lake of Alleghe surrounded by Monte Civetta. Once you reach the top of the Duran Pass you can admire Mount Agner and then have a coffee break when you reach Lake Mis. On the way back to Arabba, you need to definitely stop off at Sottoguda, one of “the most beautiful villages in Italy”. Here there is the famous “Serrai”, a narrow canyon carved out of rock – unfortunately, the flood at the end of October 2018 destroyed the Serrai road, but will be rebuilt as soon as possible. And weather permitting, it is worth stopping off at Malga Ciapela where you can climb to the top of the Queen of the Dolomites, the Marmolada with a cable car. From here the view will take your breath away.
Giau, San Pellegrino and Sellaronda
Distance: 175 Km
A trail where you can see the magnificent Dolomites: Sassongher, the Settsass, the 5 Torri, the Tofane, the south face of the Marmolada and the famous Sella range.
Where to stop: the villages of Corvara, La Villa and San Cassiano in Val Badia are all worth visiting, but we recommend stopping only once so you do not waste too much time. A definite stop is undoubtedly the Giau Pass, where you can enjoy a spectacular 360-degree panorama of the surrounding mountains. The last 45 km of the tour is for the Sellaronda, which you cannot help but notice the majesty of the Sella mountain range and, with a little luck, you may be able to spot chamois, roe deer and eagles.
Enchanting South Tyrol
Distance: 210 Km
A tour with magnificent scenery among beautiful mountains and woods.
Where to stop: after a few kilometres of reaching the top of the Gardena pass, you will start to see the famous Sella range. Here we recommend a short stop to admire the wonderful Sassolungo, a cliff face that stands at 3000m above sea level. Continuing the tour you can choose to stop in Ortisei, Rio di Pusteria and Brunico.
Distance: 260 Km
A tour to discover a territory still little known to mass tourism and of rare beauty
Where to stop: all the villages of the Val di Fassa are worth visiting, but the length of the tour does not allow for long stops. The Manghen pass is a must among the most interesting points along this route. The long climb on a narrow and winding road will excite all motorcyclists. From the Brocon pass we recommend you head for the village of San Martino di Castrozza for a pleasant stop. On the way back to Arabba, you can then make a last stop in Canale d’Agordo, the birthplace of Pope Luciani (John Paul I).
Grand Tour of the Dolomites
Distance: 270 Km
Long exhilarating uphill and downhill stretches among valleys and mountains of rare beauty.
Where to stop: climbing up the Falzarego pass, on the left you will see the ancient manor of Andraz and once you have climbed to the top, you will have the opportunity to reach Lagazuoi, famous for its open-air museum of the Great War. Going down the valley – after the only tunnel – you can admire the wonderful Ampezzo valley and its surrounding mountains. Tofana, Cristallo and 5 Torri. The climb leading to the Cibiana pass is very challenging, narrow and steep, and not very frequented. You can then relax and enjoy the pleasure of riding in the high mountains.
Between Cadore and Friuli
Distance: 290 Km
A tour to discover the nature reserve of the Friulian Dolomites, the Vajont Valley and the ancient Friulian villages.
Where to stop: we recommend the first stop at the top of the Giau pass, even if it is just to take a photo of one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the Dolomites. You can have a longer stop in Cortina for a coffee in the centre before heading to Lake Misurina – from here there is the possibility to take the road to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Following the Mauria pass, you will then come to Friuli where you can visit the villages of Forni di Sopra and Forni di Sotto and the village of Ampezzo. Another recommended stop is near Barcis so you can admire the beautiful lake with its turquoise waters. The last and unmissable stop is Erto-Casso and the Vajont dam: the predictable tragedy is documented in the museum, which you can visit in Longarone.
