Alpine Adventure

16 Days Moderate 1260 KmAVG 96 Km Deal

The second section of The Odyssey begins in Sarajevo, a city situated beautifully on the Miljacka River and surrounded by the Dinaric Alps. Devastated during the 1990s Balkan war, it has almost completely recovered and is often referred to as the ‘Jerusalem’ of Europe for its cultural and religious variety. Cyclists will head toward the Adriatic coast, passing through Mostar and its famous old bridge, destroyed in the Balkan conflict but recently meticulously rebuilt. Turning northward along the coast, riders will pedal along the water’s edge before stopping for a rest day in Split, a beautiful seaside town of bustling bars, fashionable shops, intimate cafes and ancient churches.

The next few days will be spent spinning up Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast, island-hopping on some of the numerous ferries, passing by abandoned fortresses and cruising through charming red-roofed villages, perhaps stopping for one of the region’s renown herbal grappas on a waterfront patio. Eventually, the cyclists will turn inland and race 30 km across Slovenia to reach the shipbuilding city of Trieste.

After a day of exploring the city’s medieval old city, riders will begin their long, challenging ascent up into the Alps. Two days of climbing through stunning alpine scenery will deliver the cyclists to the Cortina, a favourite ski resort for the European jet set and the host of the 1956 Winter Olympics. The route continues through the Italian Alps over impossibly beautiful passes and snaking through deep river valleys.

A rest day in another Olympic host city, Innsbruck 1976, will allow the riders to catch their breath and ride the futuristic, Zaha Hadid-designed Hungerburgbahn funicular which climbs 2,256m from the city center up to the Nordpark resort. If they are still energetic, there are numerous hiking trails to try out. Another day of cycling brings another Winter Olympic city, this time the village of Garmisch-Partenkirchen who hosted the event way back in 1936. A short downhill ride takes the riders into Munich, its famous beer halls & the end of this amazing section.
