“The scenery was jaw-dropping, the food fantastic, the organisation was impeccable and the accommodation was perfect. And to top it off, the group was a really fun bunch to ride with. It truly was the trip of a lifetime.” Gregg, Canberra

Ancient culture, an ever shifting political landscape, Latin temperament, fine food and wine, design flair, gorgeous countryside, big mountains, great trails…Why wouldn’t you want to mix it all up with some fun and at times challenging mountain biking?

Biking the Boot is an incredible three-week trip that starts with a 10 day MTB tour crossing the country from near Rome in the west, to Romagna in the north east across the Appennino hill country. We ride through Umbria, Tuscany and finish in the Emilia-Romagna region. Then, after a visit to the fascinating city of Venice, we spend six days traversing the magnificent Dolomites from Cortina to finish in the mountain bike town of Riva Del Garda at the head of Italy’s largest lake. In total we ride some 800km.

Or read through what other Biking the Booters had to say…

“Great route, brilliant group, seamless logistics and fun all the way. An astounding mountain bike holiday by any measure. I’m already clearing the diary for next year!” Mark, Barcelona

“This was my 2nd time doing the Biking the Boot tour. I thought it would be hard to beat the 2013 experience, but with 3 weeks of perfect weather the trip was even more amazing. The people I got to meet on both tours were like friends I have known for decades. I will definitely be back again.” Liam, Perth

“The formula of riding scenic and often challenging back country areas, staying at small hotels in the company of a like-minded group, drinking beer and prosecco, enjoying food, and piss-taking in classic Wild Horizons manner – is very appealing!” Russ, Sydney

“The route the tour took showcased the spectacular scenery of Umbria, Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna and then the mighty Dolomites. Great riding, terrific people, spectacular country made for a totally unique opportunity to experience Italy.” Catherine, Canberra

Our next Biking the Boot tour will run from 9 May – 29 May 2020.
