Italy - Abruzzo

Gran Sasso and Laga Mountains National Park Tour


2 days - 1 night



asphalt, mixed and mountain


Departure from the “Bagno Oltremare” bathing establishment in Roseto degli Abruzzi.
Going up the Vomano valley, we’ll reach Castelli, a spectacular village on the slopes of the Gran Sasso, so breathtaking that one might almost forget the fatigue, which will become more evident from here on out.
There will be refreshments and technical help available once we reach the pass in the Vado di Sole area.
After putting on our capes, we’ll head towards the SS17 Bis road, which will take us to the junction for Santo Stefano di Sessanio. From the mountain retreat of Lake Racollo we’ll head directly towards the town centre.
Upon arrival at the town (one of the most beautiful in Italy), we’ll be greeted with a welcome drink and typical local products.

After dinner, the overnight stay will be in the famous SEXTANTIO scattered hotel, in rooms converted from residential buildings.
After a hearty breakfast we’ll get back on our bikes to set off again for Assergi, then on to the Capannelle pass.
Then downhill towards Campotosto, followed by a refreshment stop and then off again towards Montorio al Vomano, turning onto the SS 150 road towards Roseto degli Abruzzi until reaching the “Bagno Oltremare” bathing establishment.
