8-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Innsbruck to Verona Level 1
Along the Eisak and Aige Rivers
Following ancient trade routes the bicycle route leads from the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck to the Festival City of Verona. Numerous old railroad tracks and dam pathways have been converted into modern cycle paths. Therefore, you can enjoy the impressive towns and mountain views without any traffic. The great cities of Brixen, Bolzano, and Trento provide some cultural highlights along the way! The landscape at the Brenner Pass at 1,370 metres of altitude appears almost alpine and in Brixen, orchards and vineyards dominate the natural scenery. At the Salurner Klause enter the "real" Italy with its Mediterranean flora and fauna. On this beautiful bike tour you will always find a lot of variety - whether nature, cultural, or cuisine this tour has something to offer everyone!
You will cycle on beautiful bike paths along the Eisack and Adige river valleys. From Verona you will mainly cycle on quiet side roads. You will be taken up to the Brenner Pass from where you shall descend 1,300 metres in altitude. There are only a few short climbs on Lake Caldaro and before Verona. If you prolong the tour to Venice, the only exhausting part is the Monte Berici before Vicenza (about 400 meters in altitude). This is a bike tour for everyone!
