  • Day 1

    Bolzano

    Individual arrival. Located along the Isarco river, bilingual Bolzano has always been at the crossroads between the Mediterranean and central Europe. Today it is an important commercial and tourist city, whose charming centre is dotted with colourful houses in typical Tyrolean style.

  • Day 2

    Resia Pass – Silandro (50 km)

    We will drive you to Resia up to 1,500 metres of height, where your cycling tour starts. The majestic cycle lane will take you past the lake Resia with its amazing church tower and the cloister of Montemaria. Further, you will pass through the hamlets Clusio, Glorenza (Italy’s smallest walled town) and Lasa (famous for its marble), until you reach Silandro.

  • Day 3

    Silandro – Merano (40 km)

    The tour continues along the river Adige, passing through orchards and nice landmarks like the imposing castle Dornsberg. Finally, you will arrive in beautiful Merano, the second biggest town of South Tyrol: take a walk in its lovely city centre and don’t miss its famous thermal baths.

  • Day 4

    Merano – Bolzano/surroundings (35/40 Km)

    Cycling on cycle paths and secondary roads you will reach the confluence of the rivers Isarco and Adige. Along the way you will admire the biggest apple plantation in Europe and in Lana you can even visit the apple museum.

  • Day 5

    Bolzano/surroundings – Trento (70/65 Km)

    You will start riding along the River Adige cycle path, through orchards and the vineyards of the renowned Wine Route. Half way between Bolzano and Trento you will reach Salorno, which represents the linguistic border between the German and the Italian world. It is possible to shorten the stage by taking the train in several train stations along the way.

  • Day 6

    Trento – Garda Lake (50 km)

    The river Adige will take you to Rovereto, famous for its museum of modern and contemporary art. After a short ascent to Passo di San Giovanni, you will enjoy a superb view over the Garda Lake, before starting your (well deserved) descent to the lake shore.

  • Day 7

    Garda Lake

    Free day at Lake Garda, a unique location where mountain traditions meet the Mediterranean warmth. The perfect spot to end your cycling trip: you can unwind swimming in the lake or strolling along the lakeside promenades of the small towns at the northern tip of the lake, such as Limone or Malcesine. Don’t miss a visit to Riva del Garda, an enchanting town that climbs the rugged cliffs, and reach the fortress of ‘Il Bastione’ with a panoramic lift.
