Bolzano to Verona - 5-day Self-guided Cycling Tour 

Few landscapes in Europe match the unique beauty of the Dolomites, part of the UNESCO world heritage list since 2009. The cycling route starts in the heart of these superb mountains and following the course of the river Adige takes you to the palm-lined shores of Lake Garda. Finally you’ll reach Verona, the town of Romeo & Juliet, with its impressive Roman arena.

Tour character: Level 1

As a whole it is an easy to manage itinerary, riding on secondary streets with low traffic or paved bike paths. There are light hilly bits with short uphill sections. Leisure cycling in mostly flat areas, with only a few short ups and downs. Little effort required, suitable for everyone. The longest stage, from Bolzano to Trento, can be shortened by taking the train. 

  • Total length: 150/180 km
  • Terrain: 95% tarmac, 5% unpaved
  • Train connection among the overnight stays: every day possibility to shorten the itinerary by taking the train: day 2 and 3.

Adige River Cycling Tour

The Adige River 5-day self-guided ride was our first ever organised bike ride. We loved every minute of it. The riding was amazing with great views and lovely villages at every pedal stroke. The towns chosen for overnight stops were really different from each other but all beautiful and interesting in their own right. The trip on Lake Garda was a highlight and really added another dimension to the ride. Bike tracks and small back roads felt safe at all times and the maps and guide were very accurate, easy to read and informative. The bikes were amazingly smooth to ride. We had an e-bike and a regular bike and both were in great condition with no problems over the journey. Tony and Mandy, Victoria, Australia, June 2019
