Lake Garda & The Dolomites Luxury Driving Tour

Day 1 - Arrive in Venice

Fly into the Venice International Airport. We will arrange airport transfers for you to your hotel in Venice proper. Your first hotel offers stunning views of Venice Lagoon and the Doge's Palace. It features a large outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and luxury wellness facilities-- the perfect opportunity to recoup after your flight.

Overnight Hotel: Hotel Cipriani

Day 2 - Drive 1: Venice to Cortina

Your Dolomites adventure begins by heading north away from Venice to Passo Staulanza. Up and over the pass you'll find yourself in Cortina d'Ampezzo for lunch. While this is where you will be staying the night, we recommend a 45-minute loop after lunch before calling it a day. The loop climbs steeply out of Cortina via Passo Tre Croci, leading you directly to the stunning Lago di Misurina. Finally, zoom down Passo Cimabanche back into the ritzy ski town of Cortina d'Ampezzo for the evening.

Overnight Hotel: Rosapetra Spa Resort

Day 3 - Drive 2: The Great Dolomites Road to Forestis

Start Day 3 on Passo Falzarego, then continue on one of our favorites - Passo Pordoi. This will snake along the southern base of Piz Boe, one of the highest peaks in the Dolomites. Next is Passo Sella and then Passo Gardena. Combined, these four passes equal more than 2 hours of driving nirvana. Optionally, you can make a diversion for lunch after Passo Sella to Funivie Seceda. This is a cable car that takes visitors up to 2500 m and the famous Seceda Ridge, possibly the most iconic Dolomites location of all. After Passo Gardena, the route heads north for about 20 minutes before turning left onto Passo delle Erbe. This final pass of the day takes you through quaint ski towns and right to your next hotel.

Overnight Hotel: Forestis Dolomites

Day 4 - Drive 3: Trento-Aldige & Non Valley

Day 4 begins by completing the Passo delle Erbe heading west, where you will soon join the A22 to Bolzano. Shortly after Bolzano, stop at Castle Korb for a wine tasting. The wine, made from grapes from the castle's own vineyards, is matured in cellars that used to be air raid tunnels. After the wine tasting, the route climbs up to Lago di Santa Guistina and the Non Valley. This lake is encompassed in orchard covered mountains, and features a breathtaking bridge. After lunch, continue into the Non Valley, famous for the delicious apples grown here at high altitude, before a final small mountain pass to your hotel in the Adamello-Brenta National Park.

Overnight Hotel: Lefay Resort & Spa Dolomiti

Day 5 - Drive 4: Adamello Brenta & Valvestino to Garda

Begin Drive 4 into the Adamello Brenta National Park, named for the two large massifs Adamello and Brenta. This park is known for its waterfalls, alpine lakes, thick forests, winter skiing and incredible hikes. Cruise through the quiet alpine towns and then down the coastline of Lago d'Idro. From the southern tip of the lake you'll have some incredible driving on the Valvestino Pass to your hotel and Lake Garda. Climb your way up and over the pass which includes 24 switchbacks and the stunningly clear Lago di Valvestino before settling in for some well-earned rest and relaxation overlooking the famous Lake Garda.

Overnight Hotel: Lefay Resort & Spa Garda

Day 6 - Drive 5: Lake Garda & Monte Baldo

The final drive begins along the shores of Lake Garda to Riva del Garda, the city at the northernmost tip of Lake Garda. The route heads up onto Monte Baldo, the mountain forming most of the eastern edge of the lake. After twisting through high mountain pastures and forests, you'll drop down to the lake shore again for lunch. After lunch on the shores of Lake Garda, it's a direct drive to Venice and your final hotel out among the islands.

Overnight Hotel: Hotel Cipriani

Day 7 - Explore Venice & Departure

Venice is one of the most exciting cities to visit in all of Europe. The canals and bridges, shopping streets, Michelin Star restaurants, beautiful architecture and interesting history are too much to fit into one or even two days! Because of this, we recommend adding a night or two on to the end of your tour before heading home.
