Here we are, almost ready to put the skis aside and get out the hiking boots and the bikes!
As always we are thinking of many new explorations, to take you to discover the most hidden (and most beautiful) corners of the Dolomites, the Stelvio National Park and the Adamello Brenta Natural Park.
We have so many new routes and so many new ideas in mind, and we really can't wait to share them with you!
