Alpe Adria cycling tour is undoubtedly one of Europe’s most diverse and scenic cycling tours fit for the average cyclist. Although you find yourself between the Alps and the Adriatic – the ride is far easier than it seems. A week of relaxed cycling for the cycling enthusiast or a decent active week’s holiday for the whole family. Understandably, there’s no surprise the demand for this particular tour has steadily increased.

Alpe Adria Original tour follows the official Alpe Adria track, but is shortened into 3 days of riding . The tour starts right after the official track crosses the border between Austria and Italy near the city Tarvisio, out starting point. The ending point is city Grado.

Itinerary

DAY 01

TARVISIO - VENZONE

DistanceDistance: 64,2 km
DistanceElevation: 320 m

We start the tour in Tarvisio, an Italian city close to the border of the two neighbouring countries, Slovenia and Austria. Visiting either or both of these countries a day before the tour starts is also an option.

The first part of stage 1 between Tarvisio and Venzone provides the luxury of riding on the dedicated cycling path all the way to the city of Dogna. In the second part once you leave Dogna a little more attention is needed as you’ll share sections with regular traffic.

The journey between Tarvisio and Venzone is the longest section of the entire tour. We’ll exceed 60 kilometres, with some additional help of the terrain as we constantly lose altitude throughout the day, until we reach Venzone. This is a city with medieval charm and a host of historic monuments, including medieval walls and the Chapel of San Michelle featuring a set of mummies.

We wrap up the day – as we always do on our tours with a good dinner.


DAY 02

VENZONE - UDINE

DistanceDistance: 55,5 km
DistanceElevation: 120 m

During the second day we stay on saddle in Italy. The mountains are left behind, but just for a while as the day after we plan to give them another try on the Slovenian side of the border. This is still a relaxing day. By cycling further away from the mountains, as you gently lose altitude it allows you to focus more on your surroundings – rather than putting all of your energy into overcoming the distance and cycling uphill.

Udine is the capital city of Friuli, a sub-region of the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia.


DAY 03

UDINE - GRADO

DistanceDistance: 59,1 km
DistanceElevation: 61 m

In the last section of the Alpe Adria journey towards Grado we pass by several delightful old cities, such as Palmanova and Aquileia including an archaeological site. Our altitude constantly descends throughout the day until we reach the coast arriving in the city of Grado where the Alpe Adria tour officially comes to an end.
