Dolomites - Lake Garda

FROM BRIXEN TO RIVA

Between the Dolomites and Lake Garda, Tyrolean landscapes mix with the Italian temperament. Steep mountain slopes, lush alpine pastures and crystal clear rivers meet excellent wines, strikingly beautiful city centres and Mediterranean delicacies. A perfect tour for both swimmers and climbers.

Details about the Dolomites – Lake Garda cycle tour

Bressanone is the starting point of our 7-day tour to Lake Garda. The imposing cathedral and the traditional alleyways will ensure you start your holiday right. After a day trip, to Bruneck for example, other top-class cities in South Tyrol await.

You head to Bolzano and Trento which have a lot of flair. Pay a visit to ‘Ötzi the ice man’ and take a dip in Lake Kaltern on the way. Contrary to what its name suggests, it is the warmest swimming lake in the Alps. On the last stage you have to climb a hill, but the reward is worth it: the beautiful Lake Garda.

Highlights of the 7-day Dolomites – Lake Garda cycle tour

  • The orchards of the South Tyrolean Puster Valley are always worth taking a break. Breathe in the deliciously sweet air of the trees in full bloom. In the background is the famous ‘Drei Zinnen’, a symbol of South Tyrol.
  • The great Waltherplatz in Bolzano is dedicated to the most important German-speaking poet of the Middle Ages. In the middle there is a monument in honour of Walther von Vogelweide. Nowadays you can relax here wonderfully, drink a cappuccino or try some antipasti.
  • Red glowing rock faces of the Adige Valley: A volcano dominated the area around Bolzano for millions of years. Today the remains are known as the Etschtal volcanic group and you can marvel at the elevations that seem to glow red.
  • Stroll along the promenade on Lake Garda: Lazise, Limone sul Garda, Sirmione – the list of charming towns is long. In any case, a walk along the lakeshore with trips to the chic Italian boutiques and a stop for Campari and gelato are definitely worthwhile.

Useful information about the tour Dolomites – Lake Garda

Most of the 30 to 65 km-long stages lead downhill, which is why this tour is perfect for beginners and leisure cyclists. If in doubt, the hill over the Passo San Giovanni can be mastered by pushing. The beautiful cycle paths and the well-developed side streets offer a lot of things to see on the way.

Itinerary

Since the 10th century, Brixen has been an Episcopal city. The old town with its arcades and cathedral is worth a visit. The city is located in the middle of picturesque vineyards.

Sample hotel: Krone

Today, you will take the train from Brixen into the Pustertal valley to Bruneck or Toblach. Following the river Rienz, you will cycle mostly downhill, past the accumulation lake Olanger Stausee to Bruneck (ethnographic museum). On comfortable ways, you will continue your journey in the lower Pustertal valley, through the Mühlbacher Klause into the Eisacktal valley and to Brixen (arcades, cathedral, monastery of Neustift).

Sample hotel: Krone

You will cycle through the town of Klausen, along the river Eisack to Waidbruck (view of the castle Trostburg). Here, the valley narrows and leads you to the Bolzano basin. The city of two cultures is waiting for you (archeological museum with Ötzi, the Iceman) – access into the museum with Brixen card on that day included.

Sample hotel: Scala Stiegl

Through numerous beautiful orchards and vineyards near the South Tyrolian wine route, you’re passing various castles and ruins while cycling to the Lake Kalterer See and to the charming winetown, Auer.

Sample hotel: Kaufmann

You will ride your bike from Auer on the Adige river dam bike path. At the Salurner Klause, the German speaking South Tyrol ends. The route will lead you through famous wine regions of Trentino to the old Episcopal city of Trento (old town, cathedral, castle Buonconsiglio).

Sample hotel: NH Trento

Shortly after the old Tyrolean border town Rovereto, you will leave the Adige Valley. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After the only more significant climb (approx. 150 metres) over the small San Giovanni pass, you will head down to the lake. Your bicycle tour will end in Riva or Torbole.

Sample hotel: Caravel

Touring the Dolomites
A great trip. 8 Canadians on our first European bike tour. Everything was great. Information, bikes, accommodations and support when needed. Only minor issue is with some of the map details (not enough) when trying to navigate into larger centres (Brixon especially). Will definitely do more of these trips.

Exceptional Eurobike On-Site Support
On this our 36th European bike tour, we received outstanding service beyond the call of duty from Johannes Csiky (Gastebetreuung Bozen) and one of his colleagues (servicing Trento, Torbole) at a time when we needed it most. Itineraries, accommodations, bikes can be duplicated, but people are what set tour operators apart. Bravo Eurobike! Given a choice, we would always book and cycle with Eurobike.

Eine super Radreise
Eine tolle Radtour durch beeindruckende Landschaften und super ausgebauten Radwegen. Mit dem Koffertransport klappte es sehr gut, wenn wir im Hotel ankamen waren die Koffer bereits dort. Der Rücktransport vom Gardasee zum Ausgangspunkt erfolgte pünktlich und mit sehr nettem Fahrer.
