Ostuni città bianca

Al Forte is the name of a one of the most famous hotels in Arabba, in the province of Belluno in the north of Italy. Arabba is located in the wonderful Dolomites mountains in the valley of Fodom. This place is a real paradise for all those people who love biking up. Some of them go beyond this because Arabba is perfect for extreme biking in places such as Col di Lana or Sella. This last has an ideal name for hikers as the term 'sella' is the Italian translation of 'saddle bike'.

Every year, a lot of bikers choose Arabba for their holidays and Al Forte Hotel as it is in a perfect location and offers all comforts after a day out riding a bike through the incontaminated valley breathing the true nature. As Arabba organizes mountain bike tours all the year round, this hotel offers many facilities for all those people who want to enjoy the stunning view of the Dolomites biking but they love to be pampered when they come back to their rooms. People who are interested in this sport can book a holiday package that include guided tours and all the hotel conforts.

The Al Forte Hotel is particularly fond of bikers and motorbikers and because of this passion they can immediately enjoy a discount of 10% on all services and choose one tour. Moreover, there are many events such as Sella Ronda Bike Day, the Marathon Dles Dolomites or the Cronoscalata to go from Arabba to Pordoi Pass just biking.

The packages offered to bikers include a machine shop, a secure bike deposit and an area to dry clothes and wash bikes. Not only this. The package includes guided tours, the possibility to rent bikes, and if bikers want to ride their bycicles without heavy baggage, they can enjoy the travel light service. This means that 'Insam Express' brings their luggage to Schwarzer Adler Hotel and then from the hotel to their home.

When bikers come back to the hotel they find a very friendly environment and a very kind staff ready to satisfy every possible request. There is a restaurant with an incredible menu full of Tyrolean dishes, many events such as the Ladin dinner, with salty strudel, mushrooms of the forest and Fodom cheese served in a dining room where good food, wine and friends are important to share experience and telling stories. In winter the staff serves dishes dressed in a typical Tyrolean costume. And if someone is too tired or has some pain, he can enjoy massages with analgesic effects. A Finnish sauna, a steam bath and a tepidarium are also available along with a calidarium, a gush shower, cold fog, tropical rain, kneipp, solarium, a gym and many other facilities offered by the wellness centre.

It is really difficult to go back home after a holiday like this!
