MOUNTAIN BIKE ENDURO - FULL WEEK, ITALY

BERGAMO, OROBIE ALPS AND COMO LAKE WITH VIEWS TO SWITZERLAND

A week with awesome MTB Enduro biking, singletracks, drops and challenging heights. We have two nights in the mountains, a hole day free to see and explore the surroundings and lots of good food and new experiences.

In total of five awesome bike days with 7 nights. Together with our local guides, we will move in our valley Val Brembana but also look out over Lake Como and visit the valley Valtellina. Here we have time to explore more areas with different types of bikling. A full day off where you can take the bus to charming Bergamo or hike in the nearby areas. Spa QC Terme can be a comfortable full day rest for tired bodies.
We always have two guides on our tours to be able to share the group if needed & we love good food, coffee breaks, photo stops and happy laughs on our tours!
