Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Terrain

Our bike routes on this trip are a bit different than those found on a typical Backroads trip. Rather than paved roads, our cycling routes consist of mixed terrain including unpaved roads and gravel bike paths. Additionally, due to the terrain in the Dolomites region, the rides on this trip contain numerous short and steep ascents and descents, which can make the routes feel more challenging than the mileage suggests. To accommodate riding on this terrain, we use a different fleet of bikes created specifically for cycling on variable surfaces.

From $5,449 - $5,749 /person
