Day 2, SANTA CATERINA, GLACIER FORNI, MONTE ZEBRÙ
One highlight after another, shuttle up, gravel road, path and long descents. Technical biking up, down and once again - fantastic views that are hard to believe! Passo Zebru' gives us proximity to Gran Zebru', the top that gives us almost 4000 meters. We go for a ride to the glacier Forni on the north side of the Alps, here we cross the water with help of suspension bridges and finally roll down into the old riverbed towards drier lands.
The stone crackles under the wheels, the streams with their crystal clear water are bubbling from the mountainside and once down in the valley, greener valleys and a good lunch await us.
Food included: Breakfast, lunch and evening dinner with drinks

Day 3, WE LEAVE SANTA CATERINA AND BEGIN OUR JOURNEY BACK TO BERGAMO
It's time to go on and the day kicks off with the fantastic Bormio 3000! Here we use the lift system to reach the top and then have a fantastic day ahead of us - the paths take us all the way down to the hotel in Santa Caterina and after the lunch break we start our trip home again through Sunny Valley.
 We bike through beautiful valleys with cows, sheep and small alpine lakes, Ponte dell 'Alpe, Val di Rezzalo and finally we enter with our bikes in Tirano.

Food included: Breakfast, lunch and evening dinner with drinks

Day 4, THE CLASSIC RED TRAIN, BERNINA EXPRESS & LONG TRAILS BACK DOWN
The train takes us up into the mountains again and we start from the station in Tirano. The view is fantastic and the train track and bridges are like cut from classic travel brochures and movie sequences. We jump off at the european highest train station, Ospizio Bernina, stretch our legs to reload - now awesome singletracks and gravel road await us through forest areas and valleys that take us all the way down to Tirano again. Here we land later in the afternoon, wonderfully tired, windswept and hungry - time for good food and to enjoy the day that has been.
Food included: Breakfast, lunch and evening dinner with drinks

Day 5, BICYCLE-FREE DAY - IF YOU WANT - LATE MORNING, VINEYARD LUNCH AND MOVEMENT
Today it is bike-free for those who want to rest body and brain and we take a later breakfast. It will be lunch at a nice vineyard in the famous wine area of ​​Valtellina, known for its wines made from the Nebbiolo grape and grown on the sunny side of the valley, towards Switzerland. From this area comes the ham Bresaola, the cheese Bitto and the classic dish Pizzoccheri, all cooked according to old traditions. During the day we continue with the shuttle and in late afternoon we reach Valle Brembana and Passo San Marco. The pass is 2000m and here we stay a night at a nice Rifugio.
If you have rested your legs enough, the afternoon can offer a race on singletrack biking down to Morbengo and shuttle back up for those who want, dare and can.
Food included: Breakfast, winetasting, lunch, evening dinner with drinks

Day 6, WELCOME TO VALLE BREMBANA - THE LITTLE VALLEY WITH THE STEEP MOUNTAINS 
We have two days ahead of us with the guides' own favorite trails - these are their home trails and there is plenty to explore. The day gives you descents, transport on paths and challenges in the eastern sides of the valley. Here the mountains are steep and the ravines take turns. We go down along the hiking trails, have lunch in one of the villages that will bring us up to beautiful Monte Torcole. Here we invite you to awesome biking along the grassy hills or a ride in our bike park for those of you who are playful.
Food included: Breakfast, lunch and evening dinner with drinks

Day 7, FINAL BIKE DAY DOWN IN VALLEY AND SAN PELLEGRINO TERME
Today we choose other paths on the west side of the valley. Cantedoldo, Monte Avaro and finally we end up in San Pellegrino Terme - the old termal bath village from the early 20th century. We check in at our hotel, maybe an hour's sauna can help the body to recover? In the city we are met by the life and movement of the small town, an ice cream in the gelateria, pizza night and some good drinks.
Food included: Breakfast, lunch and aperitivo
