South Tyrol 7-days Cycling Tour Level 2
South Tyrol: Who does not think of excellent wines, Törggele meals, the Dolomites, and the scenic beauty of the landscape when hearing this name? A bicycle tour through South Tyrol can truly become an amazing holiday. This tour will show you cities like Bolzano, Merano, and Trento. You will get to Lake Kalterersee and through beautiful orchards and vineyards. A bicycle tour through South Tyrol is always also a culinary exploration. Our tour is for sure one of the most convenient ways to explore South Tyrol by bike.
Many bike paths and farm tracks lead through orchards and vineyards. Only sometimes you will find yourself on short connecting roads with moderate traffic. You will mainly cycle downhill on flat roads, but there are also some short climbs. For almost all stages there are shortcuts or extensions you can take instead of taking the routes described below.
