Adventure cycling through the Alps is in itself a wondrous experience – pedalling the heights through the UNESCO Dolomites is the peak (no pun intended) and is surely on every cycle-adrenalin-junkies’ bucket list.
The eco inspired Spa Hotel Lagació over in St Kassian/Alta Badia has long been established within the serious biking fraternity and even has an onsite bike hire shop – The alpine hotel is thoroughly modern with luxurious touches, it is spacious and perfectly located amidst the Dolomites. Hit off the day with a hearty breakfast – head off for a day’s touring and return to the hotel spa – we strongly recommend the hay bath or the profis can opt for a whole body sports massage.
The terrain is exhilarating and thrilling– of course it is as demanding and rugged as you can hack – whatever your challenge, you can trust us, the exertion is so hammer hard rewarding – this slice of Mother Nature is a stunner, an endless trek through mountains, forest trails and passes, non-stop.
The region hosts several international races: Dolomiti Superbike, Dolomite Cycling Tour, Maratona dles Dolomites (Dolomites Marathon), Giro d’Italia which all, make excellent spectator sports.
The Lagació Hotel has teamed up with Dolomite Biking to provide guided tours and adventure trails in the Giro d’Italia’s legendary Dolomite passes: Sella, Pordoi, Gardena, Giau, Fedaia, Furcia, Passo delle Erbe and S. Pellegrino.
The fun, sweat, tears and adventure trial is endless.
So either in top gear fashion, or a gentler excursion on two wheels – the Dolomites makes for a fun filled few days in South Tyrol – not forgetting the chillax time spent at the fabulous Lagació Hotel Mountain Residence & Spa – doesn’t only have to be tears & sweat after all.
Discover South Tyrol with our 22 fabulous hotels - From its perch in northern Italy, South Tyrol, or Alto Adige as it is also known, is a jewel of ancient cultures set in the mighty crown of the Alps. Nestled among the Dolomite mountains (a UNESCO World Heritage site) a marriage of languages and cultures comes together in the area’s healing spa towns, medieval hamlets, fairytale castles, wine trails and foodie destinations.
Known primarily for skiing, South Tyrol is also a year-round home to hiking, mountain biking and strolling through the botanical gardens at the base of its snow-capped mountains. At the end of the day, cap it all off with a signature hay bath or a dip in the healing thermal waters. This hidden Alpine part of Italy is well worth travelling to.
This is the South Tyrol where Austria snugs up to Italy.
