Win a cycling holiday in the Italian Dolomites | Posted: 20 June 2017
Self guided cycling holidays in Italy

Pedal through the vineyards and orchards coating South Tyrol’s valley floors on a leisurely 4-night cycling break.

South Tyrol is a fabulously beautiful region, offering a unique fusion of cultures. This is where the proud traditions of northern Italy collide with those of the Austrian Tyrol, just across the border, and where the majestic Dolomite mountains reign supreme, their jagged peaks towering over delightful green meadows sprinkled with pretty villages and onion-domed churches.

We have teamed up with South Tyrol Tourism to offer you the chance to win our four-night, Apples & Vines self-guided cycling holiday, on which you can soak up the area’s spectacular scenery without having to ascend any mountains!

The routes, in fact, are decidedly easy-going, taking you along quiet country lanes and designated cycle paths as you meander between vineyards and neat rows of fruit trees. With our carefully compiled route notes as your guide, you are free to stop at points of interest en route, and to travel entirely at your own pace.

You stay in two comfortable 4-star hotels, with dinner included on the first night of each stay, so that you can take your pick from local restaurants on the other two evenings. The region’s excellent cuisine is another highlight, as are the local wines – a glass of Lagrein rosé or an aromatic Gewürztraminer goes down particularly well after a day’s exploration on two wheels.

“Sitting amid rolling vineyards in the warm sunshine sipping a glass of earthy red – yet beneath a backdrop of majestic snow-covered mountains. Simply wonderful!”

The orchards are not the only surprise awaiting the first-time visitor to this captivating region. Complemented by the delicious local wines, the excellent cuisine has strong Austrian influences, and German is widely spoken. Cycling-wise, the terrain is remarkably easy-going, despite the backdrop of high peaks, with good rail links to help shorten some routes.
