  • Day 1

    Arrival in Meran

    Travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) are to be found at the hotel.

  • Day 2

    Day Trip Vinschgau/Merano approx. 70km

    Take the train line ‘Vinschgaubahn’ towards the mountain pass ‘Reschenpass’. From the town of Mals onwards to Glurns (perfectly preserved Medieval city wall). Via the Montani ruins past Schlanders and heading south to Merano. Castles and palaces dot your way or tower high above (i.e. Juval castle owned by the Austrian mountaineer Reinhold Messner). While cycling enjoy marvellous views of the impressive ‘Ortler’ massif and the ’Stilfserjoch’. This stage can be shortened if you wish.

  • Day 3

    Merano – Bolzano approx. 45km

    Via Lana (Schnatterpeck altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area. The South Tyrolian wine route passes several well-fortified castles, palaces and ruins. Continue on towards Eppan and along the base of Sigmundskron castle (Messner-Mountain museum) to Bolzano (pergolas, ‘Ötzi’ museum).

  • Day 4

    Bolzano - Auer approx. 30km

    There are two ways to get to lake Caldaro: either the slightly hilly way on the bike path via Eppan or on the flat cycle path along the Adige dam until the charming wine village Auer.

  • Day 5

    Auer – Trento approx. 45km

    From Auer you continue on the cycle path along the Adige dam. The ‘Salurner Klause’ is the end of the German speaking part of South Tyrol. The route leads you through the famous Trentino wine regions into the ancient diocesan town Trento (lovely old part of town, cathedral, Buonconsiglio palace).

  • Day 6

    Trento – Torbole/Riva approx. 45km

    Shortly after the old Tyrolian border town of Rovereto, our cycling tour leaves the Adige valley. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After the only ascent worth mentioning (approx. 150m) over the small San Giovanni pass, the path leads downhill along the lake towards Torbole. The cycle tour either ends in Riva or Torbole.
