Bicycle Touring

An alternative way to explore the Garda Lake is by bicycle, be it by road or mountain bike.

Bicycle touring is the perfect fit for families and the more athletic, as well as an environmentally friendly and healthy way to discover nature and the historical treasures in the Verona area of Lake Garda. There are numerous routes to choose among, some of which have been created with the purpose of encouraging a kind of 'green tourism' that will safeguard the land. Tourist information centers are available for more information about routes, connections, bus+bike and train+bike services, as well as contact information for bike rental services.

The hills around Verona will challenge mountain bike lovers. With long trails, demanding slopes and unforgettable landscapes, only experts should be heading to the Monte Baldo and the Lessinia Regional Park. The cable car that connects Malcesine to the Monte Baldo even offers a dedicated service for cyclists. The most exciting path is certainly the eastern Baldo ring, which sets out from Caprino Veronese and touches Rivoli Veronese and Avio, before circling back for a total of 90 km.

Of course, there is no lack of trips by the lakeside. From Lazise to Bardolino you can travel the 20 km ring on the 'Wine Route' ('Strada dell'Uva'), which is suitable for the whole family. If you use the bus+bike service, you can take the striking route from Garda to San Zeno through Torri del Benaco. You can also reach Lake Garda directly from Verona, following a 42 km bike path arriving in Rivoli Veronese.

Even though they do not wind around the charming shores of lake Garda, there are two cycle routes with river view in the Verona area which are worth trying. The first is along the Val d'Adige bike path, which follows the banks of the river Adige from Verona to Cologna Veneta. The other is the River Mincio cycle route: easy and ideal for families with children. With the bus+bike and train+bike service you will be able to reach Mantua in a perfectly relaxed manner, setting out from Peschiera del Garda. All that's left to do is to get on your bike!

If the lower lake Garda is in general the ideal destination for a bicycle trip suitable for the whole family, Lake Garda Trentino is a land full of surprises for the mountain bike lovers: there are numerous paths of different difficulties, the most famous of all is the Ponale path that leads from Riva del Garda to Lake Ledro.
But the Trentino area of the lake also has 3 famous cycle paths suitable for the whole family: the Adige cycle path, which leads from Trento to Verona, the Adige-Garda cycle path, which connects Vallagarina to the Lake Garda area and the Valle dei Laghi cycle path, which starts from Torbole and runs along the Sarca river, the largest inlet on Lake Garda.
Furthermore, if you are a lover of good wine, during your bicycle tours you can also stop in one of the many wineries that you will find along the way!

The bicycle routes in the lower Lake Garda Bresciano area are suitable for those who love the tranquility of the hinterland hills and offer fantastic breathtaking views. These are routes completely immersed in nature, which can be traveled without particular difficulties and which are therefore suitable for the whole family.
If, on the other hand, you are looking for something more demanding and mountain bike routes, always along the Brescia coast north of Salò, you can find routes to discover the Parco dell’Alto Garda Bresciano.
