Loved the cycling, routes were amazing, guides were perfect, hotels were great and the food was deliciously all week. It all adds up to a perfect vacation and one we'd gladly do again. Our three guides were absolutely the best!

CLD: Passo Sella

This excellent Trek Travel trip provided me with the opportunity to climb Passo Stelvio (on my bucket list), Passo Giau, Passo Mortirolo, and Passo Gavia. It was hard work with a lot of enduring effort, however, my two guides were excellent to be with and I did appreciate the group who joined me for the fun. The support and the facilities were excellent, and I plan to come back to this trip again in the future.

This Classic Climbs tour is a fantastic opportunity for good cyclists to challenge themselves on some of the best climbs in the world. The guides are thoroughly familiar with the entire area and do an excellent job of tailoring the riding to match the skill levels and capabilities of each rider. The quality of the riding, scenery, and professional tour organization make this one of the best cycling experiences I have ever enjoyed.

This was truly the trip of a lifetime. Every aspect of the trip was well planned out. I have biked in many awesome and scenic places before, but nothing quite like the Dolomites. Completing the challenging climbs on this trip was definitely satisfying, but not half as satisfying as the enormous mountains and geological features around every twist and turn in the road. The excellent food, friendly cyclists, and other planned activities on this trip only add to the wonderful experience.

DL:riding in the Dolomites

No words can explain the total experience. Unbelievable, Exhausting, Exhilarating, Mind Boggling and Love Every Minute of it. The guides are great guides and hosts. They are very knowledgeable about the area and do anything to help you out. They really got to know each and everyone of us personally. You couldn't ask for better guides. The food and wine was unbelievable. The whole experience was fantastic, plus I rode with a great group of people.

DL:riding in the Dolomites (up to Passo Giau)

I've been fortunate to travel to 50+ countries and cycled in many of those. This was definitely one of the best week's of cycling I've ever experienced. The scenery of the Dolomites is simply incredible and each day, when you think the views can't get any better, they do. It was a privilege to be able to ride so many of the incredible climbs and descents I've read so much about and to be taken care of by Trek Travel in style. Thank you!
