3 INTENSIVE BIKING DAYS WITH THE BEST TRAILS IN VAL BREMBANA
A fantastic MTB trip in the beautiful mountains of northern Italy. This trip suits experienced mountainbikers who likes to challenge themselves and are curious about biking downhill in a bike park. You will enjoy cycling single tracks, winding paths and fantastic heights in the Alps with lots of technical challenges.
With three intensive cycling days together with our local guides, you get a glimp of the mountains, the trails and the life in our area. We have an overnight stay in the mountains where we check in at a familiar Rifugio, sleep in dormitories and eat a great homemade dinner. In the valley we stay in a small hotel with charming rooms and services.

After breakfast we pack an overnight bag, the rest of the luggage stays at the hotel. We go up into the mountains for a full day bike ride on wonderful altitude meters, paths and roads. Enduro cycling for those who want and challenge, white roads with curves and more flow for those who want. We make the best use of nature, paths, pastures and hiking trails. Balconyroads are a common feature that can give a breathtaking feeling in the stomach. Challenging surfaces such as gravel and stone are common. In the afternoon we arrive tired and pleased to our mountain hut, "Rifugio". We sleep in dormitories, ladies and gentlemen. Time for relaxation, something good to drink and dinner in the evening.

Day 4, DOWN TO THE VALLEY THROUGH WINDING PATHS, NARROW VALLEY AND SMALL VILLAGES
We wake up with the mountains outside the door and with the bikes ready, we take on another wonderful cycling day. Challenges on different levels, balconyroads, singletracks and these amazing views. The slopes are steep and challenging but the view is stunningly beautiful. We cycle all the way to lunch and fill up with energy to take us back to Branzi. Our shuttle is with us and shuttles those who want to rest their legs and the others cycle all the way back. Here you have an afternoon with some good food and a good time in the hotel's relaxation area before a good and well-deserved dinner is served.
