The Three Peaks of Lavaredo: gateway to the Dolomites

LenghtLenght6.8 km
Elevation gainElevation gain522 m

Looking at it on paper it might not seem like a real challenge, both when it comes to the average slope, as well as the elevation gain. The climb of the Three Peaks of Lavaredo may give the wrong impression with its long stretch of pure descent, while in reality the last 4 km are deadly. See for yourself!


Climbing the Lavaredo Peaks is an unforgettable experience for cyclists, both due to the technical difficulties, as well as thanks to the beautiful silhouettes of the three peaks that rise elegantly reaching a height of 3,000 m a.s.l. on a large gravel pedestal. The climb starts from Lake Misurina and finishes at Rifugio Auronzo, at an altitude of 2,320 m, with only one road on which to make your way up and down. Do not be misled by the average gradient and the small difference in altitude: right off the bat, the climb starts with a difficult section followed by approximately 1,200 metres of pure descent. But the last 4 km offer challenging gradients ranging from 13 to 18%.
