Cycling & Hiking on Lake Garda
special week

The “Cycling & Hiking on Lake Garda” offers a combination of hiking and cycling activities, exploring the beautiful scenery of our area.

Not just cycling at Lake Garda – our newest package includes both hiking and cycling guided excursions around Lake Garda, Monte Baldo and Lessinia. The “Cycling & Hiking on Lake Garda ” offers a true active vacation, with 7 nights at Garda Bike Hotel and a combination of hiking and cycling activities, exploring the beautiful scenery of our area.

During the hiking excursions, participants will be led by experienced guides through scenic trails and paths that wind through the hills and mountains. The hiking routes vary in difficulty and length and may include challenging climbs and easier strolls through the countryside.

For the cycling portion of the tour, participants may rent a bike from our Pinarello fleet or bring their own, to explore the area on two wheels. The cycling routes will also vary in difficulty and length, and may include some challenging uphill climbs, scenic descents, and leisurely rides through the countryside.

Meals are included in the package, and will feature local specialties and traditional cuisine.

The “Cycling & Hiking” package offers an immersive and active way to experience the beauty and culture of our region’s lake, mountains and agricultural areas. Participants can expect to be challenged physically, while also enjoying stunning scenery and the camaraderie of fellow travelers

DAY 2 – Sunday

On this first bike tour we will discover Valpolicella, a land famous for its vineyards and its good wine. After riding about twenty km, we come to the eastern edge of Valpolicella, where the first climb begins in San’Antambrogio, during which we will go by the ancient Romanesque village of San Giorgio. We’ll stop for a nice coffee/refreshment, with an excellent view of the lake. A beautiful descent with wide bends will lead us directly to the base of the second slightly sloping climb, among the vineyards, and the return to the hotel.

Shorter Option:  40 km with a return by Van

DAY 3 – Monday

We’ll let the bike rest, today is hiking day! We will take a 45-minute drive by van, to Due Pozze, and then we are on Monte Baldo! Boots, sticks, backpacks and we are ready to set off along the easy path that will take us to the Fiori del Baldo Refugio, or lodge. After traversing the woods for a while, you will come to a clearing where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of Lake Garda, and the Alps to the north. After a refreshing typical lunch at the lodge, we will return to the van with the option of descending by chairlift.

Along the cycle path along the Mincio river we will reach Borghetto sul Mincio, a beautiful small village along the river. Overlooking Borghetto, in Valeggio sul Mincio, we will stop for lunch to savor the famous Valeggio tortellini.

DAY 6 – Thursday

Called “the eighth wonder of the world” by Winston Churchill during its inauguration in 1913, as well as having been the opening setting for the James Bond films “007 – Quantum of Solace”, the Strada della Forra will not disappoint your expectations. Arriving in Malcesine by van, you’ll cycle along the lake in a northerly direction and then arrive along the opposite bank where, just before Limone, you will take a short trip on the new cycle path suspended over the lake. After cycling through Limone, the ascent of the Strada della Forra begins: 6km that wind along the slope of the mountain and inside a canyon, will lead us to Pieve di Tremosine from which you will enjoy a panoramic view of the lake. Back in Limone, the ferry will return across the lake to Malcesine.

The route, demanding at first, sees the highest peak at Cima Corno d’Aquilio, where your efforts will be repaid by a unique 360-degree view of Monte Baldo, Lake Garda and the entire Lessinia plateau.
