Itinerary

Welcome briefing and bike fitting. For the rest of the day, we recommend visiting Innsbruck’s famous old town with its city tower and its “Golden Roof”.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Austria Trend Congress

You will cycle on the former towpath along the river Inn, along the foot of the Martinswand (mountain face) and through little villages and market towns to Stams (baroque Cistercian convent). Then, you will continue your tour via Haiming to Imst, the so-called “Merano of North Tyrol”.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Hirschen

Today, you will cycle along the river Inn, past the Zams monastery to Landeck. A bus will take you to Nauders from where you will cycle just under 100 metres in altitude uphill to the mountain pass called the 'Reschenpass'. From there, you will cycle downhill to Lake Reschensee and continue on minor roads to Mals (many towers in the centre) or to Burgeis at the foot of the castle Marienburg.

Hotel (example):

Garni Zum Hirschen

Your day starts with a trip to Glurns, which has got perfectly preserved medieval city walls. Then, you will cycle via the Montani ruins, through Schlanders, down to Merano. On your way, you will come across some pretty castles (mountaineer Reinhold Messner’s castle Juval) and you will get marvellous views of the impressive mountain massif Ortlermassiv and the mountain pass Stilfserjoch. Since 2004, the Venosta train (Vinschgaubahn) has been operating again between Mals and Merano. You can almost always take this train as part of your journey.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Siegler im Thurm

Today’s stage will take you via Lana (Schnatterpeck Altar) and through numerous orchards and vineyards in the area of the South Tyrolean Wine Road, past many fortresses, castles, and ruins such as Hocheppan (famous frescos), to Lake Caldaro. You will stay overnight in the cosy wine town, Auer.

Hotel (example):

Bio-Hotel & Residence Kaufmann

On the sixth day, you will mainly cycle along the river Adige. At times you will cycle through orchards to Salurn, where the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The famous Trentino vineyards are located next to the dam ways. These ways lead you to Trento, which has a lovely old town, a cathedral and Buonconsiglio castle.

Hotel (example):

Hotel NH Trento

Today, you will cycle on bike paths along the river Adige via the old Tyrolean border town of Rovereto to Mori. From here, the route leads westward to Lake Garda. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After a short climb onto Passo S. Giovanni (150 metres), you will head down to the lake to Torbole or  Riva.

Hotel (example):

Hotel Caravel

Tour character

You will cycle on beautiful bike paths in the river valleys of the Inn and Adige and on numerous quiet side roads between orchards and vineyards. You will be taken from the Inntal valley to the mountain pass Reschenpass. From there, you can enjoy a descent of over 1,200 metres in altitude. Sometimes small climbs will be necessary.

Innsbruck-Gardasee
wir waren eine Gruppe von 12 Personen.Die Reise war von A-Z super gut organisiert.Hervorheben möchte ich hier die Flexibilität von Fr. Bamberger und Fr. Raxendorfer, die relativ kurzfristig noch ein E-Bike organisieren konnten.Auch der Service von Eurobike unterwegs ( Gepäcktransfer und Reparaturen am Fahrrad) ließ nichts zu wünschen übrig. Die Region ist einfach traumhaft, jedes Hotel hat auf seinen eigenen Charme und war auf die Bedürfnisse von Radlern abgestimmt.

Innsbruck - Gardasee
Tolle Radwege, tolle Landschaft, Hotels von super bis zweckmäßig, Frühstück immer gut bis perfekt. Superschöne, lange Abfahrten aber auch manchmal etwas bergauf. Die Autobahn, die besonders im Inntal auf der Karte bedrohlich nah scheint, ist erstaunlich wenig zu merken, nur vor Trento fährt man direkt parallel und auf Sicht- und Hörweite. Kann man nur empfehlen.
