Italia Outdoors Food + Wine
Our passion is creating intimate, personalized cycling, skiing, and hiking adventures that explore an authentic Italy - its outdoor beauty, its hidden back roads, its small family producers, its traditional wines, at your preferred pace.
Cycle the Dolomites with Your Own Private Expert Guides
- Have you cycled in the Dolomites before and are looking fo challenging new passes to conquer?
- Or are you new to climbing, and looking for an introduction to this type of cycling?
- Are you part of a group with mixed abilities that would like to experience Italy together, but on different cycling routes that match their skills?
- Do you have a group of experienced cyclists who want an exclusive tour where you can cycle at your preferred pace?
Whether you area seasoned cyclist or new to cycling, the magnificent Dolomite Mountains offer one of the most exhilarating settings for cycling and culture. Let us design a private cycling tour for your group that combines both. It will satisfy everyone's skill levels and riding style and make sure that you experience the best in regional culture, cuisine, and wines during your off-saddle hours.
Our trips are truly custom. Private trips are not always "custom" trips. With many companies, a private trip is often a standard itinerary offered to a private group on specific dates. A custom trip is much more. Your group will have a unique itinerary created specifically to meet individual fitness goals and varied interests. Vernon and Kathy listen to your desires and design a custom trip to match your daily mileage, terrain, preferred riding style, accommodations, and budget.
We are with you from start to finish. From your first contact, until the end of your tour, every communication is directly with us, Vernon and Kathy, no one in between This means that we get to know you as individuals and your requests don't get lost in translation. We work with you to plan your trip, we greet you at the airport when you arrive in Italy, and we personally oversee all aspects of your tour. We don't outsource our trips to hired guides, we believe your trip of a lifetime deserves our very best service and personal attention.
Our private trips are affordable. Our custom private trips are priced the same as our scheduled trips, as we are small, regional, and rely primarily on word of mouth to market our services. Private tours for groups of 4-12 people can start as low as $3600 per person, double occupancy. We also offer a few scheduled trips in the Dolomites, from wine tours to the most challenging climbs in the region.
