Dolomites Giro from Innsbruck

Highlights of the Dolomites, Tyrol, Tauern – 22/06-29/06/2019

Whenever anyone hears the word Dolomites immediately visualises the typical images of craggy peaks in the Italian sun. Drei Zinnen, Marmolada Glacier, the Sella massif – they're world-famous destinations not just for walkers and mountaineers but also for cyclists, and this has also been the beautiful setting for fierce battles over the maglia rosa in the Giro d'Italia. So the Dolomites are our goal on this trip, but we won't be satisfied with them alone. The peaks of the Tyrol, the majestic Grossglockner, the Puster Valley and the unique charm of the South Tyrol – there's no shortage of highlights.

The Dolomites Giro 2017 enables you to open the summer season in the Alps. While the date, late June, is early, we've got a good chance of warm days because most of our riding will be done to the south of the main line of the Alps. The start point, Innsbruck, is quick and easy to get to. And the passes we ride ought really to leave no wish unfulfilled: the top of the tour on the Grossglockner High Alpine Road, the classic Sellaronda, the famous Fedaia, the mythical Jaufen Pass.

The ingredients are ready for a top-class week of cycling.


The Guides

Denny – The Laid-Back One

quäldich-Guide Denny

A loyal client for several years, prefers to ride in the relaxed group. Finally hired as a guide for 2017. His stomping ground is the unforgiving Brandenburger Plain around Berlin.

Klaus – The Saxon from Lago

quäldich-Guide Klaus Hoffmann

Since Klaus moved to Lago Maggiore for family reasons, he's been unstoppable on the bike. On his first Epic Climbs trip as a guide, he's definitely far more than a linguistic support for the team.

Olivier - eidgenössischer Bergspezialist


Gute Laune, schnelle Beine, hohe Technikkompetenz. Mit diesen Voraussetzungen katapultiert sich Olivier in seinem ersten quäldich-Reisejahr an die Spitze des Guidepelotons für die Pyrenäenklassiker. High Potential!
