Lake Reschen to Lake Garda 7-day Self-guided Cycling Tour Level 1
Whether spring, summer, or autumn, the southern slopes of the Alps are worth a visit by bike from the time of the first blossoms to harvest time. Regardless of whether you love nature or culture, this tour offers just the right thing for everyone! The castles along the way and the great culture in the different towns will inspire those who are interested. Just as the orchards and vineyards, the magnificent mountain panoramas, the fresh air and the unspoiled nature along the beautifully landscaped paths make every cyclist’s heart leap for joy. You will cycle cycle 1500m of descent on a bike path from the Alps to Lake Garda!
You will cycle on beautiful bike paths mainly along the Adige River. The route will lead you from the Reschenpass (mountain pass) almost 1,500 metres in altitude downhill to Lake Garda. However, you will have to cycle some small climbs too. Overall, you will find yourself on beautiful bike paths and country lanes. Unfortunately, moderate traffic is unavoidable on some short connecting roads.
