From San Vigilio, follow the main road to Corvara, where the zigzags begin for Passo Campolongo. Cross the pass, follow the road downhill for Arabba and then Selva di Cadore. Here is where the very hard ascent of about 900m of difference in height begins, towards Passo Giau, one of the most breathtaking passes in the Dolomites. Continue downhill to Pocol, a small village before Cortina where, on the left, you take the last ascent to Passo Falzarego. Lastly pass through Passo Valparola, San Cassiano, La Villa and Longega, and back to San Vigilio.
