The increasing relevance and prestige of the Tour of the Alps, the Euro-regional stage race for professionals scheduled from Monday, April 16th to Friday, April 20th 2018 across Trentino, South Tyrol and Tyrol, is confirmed by the important partnership which the GS Alto Garda‘s organizers have signed with Eurotours International – one of the most famous tourism buying groups and tour operators in Europe.
Tour of the Alps has entrusted the accommodation – its event’s caravan consists of over 550 people – to the experience and professionalism of the new partner, which has been working in this field for almost 40 years. A high-quality stay in the wonderful destinations along the race stages is designed – especially to the teams and champions that ennoble the race with their own participation.
On this occasion, Eurotours International also offers two different travel schedules for race enthusiasts. The former is a four-day package (April, 13rd-16th), focused on Garda Trentino, to visit the territory that will host the start of the Tour of the Alps 2018. While the latter is a three-day package (April, 19th-21st) for cycling enthusiasts to discover Innsbruck, home of the finish line of the Euro-regional race and of the upcoming Road World Championships at the end of September.
The price of the holiday in Trentino is € 159 (double room) and € 239 (single room), while the price of the Tyrolean package is € 124 (double room) and € 179 (single room). The offer – reserved to groups of participants starting from 20 people – includes excursions, guided tours and the possibility to dive into the atmosphere of the Tour of the Alps. Further solutions can be developed for those who wish to extend their stay on weekdays and visit the South Tyrol.
