Dolce Tempo: What to Expect

Our easygoing Multi-Adventure tours make adventuring a breeze! Perfect for beginners or occasional bikers/hikers, or anyone who is interested in exploring the world actively. With dedicated Trip Leaders, support vans and GPS supported routes, the day is yours to decide. An unbeatable blend of walking and biking routes (2-4 hours of activity, 10-30 miles of biking, 2-7 miles of walking) with other fun-filled activities such as kayaking, rafting, snorkeling, camel riding and more. On trips with biking, custom electronic-assist bikes allow you to pedal effortlessly! 

 

Route notes

 

Route Notes: The walking is mainly on smooth grass, gravel and dirt pathways, and paved paths and roads. We will briefly walk through a forest which has some exposed roots. Since the mountains taper directly into the fjords and lakes, there are some steeper sections we will walk; these sections are on paved paths and quiet roads. The e-biking is primarily on quiet scenic roads and often in designated bike lanes. Although the roads are almost always quiet, some sections are narrow and winding. With the exception of one long significant downhill section, our e-bike rides primarily range from level to rolling.

*Prefer to pedal without power? Regular road bikes are available by request, ask your Trip Consultant.
