Lake Reschen - Lake Garda

ON THE ADIGE CYCLE PATH TO THE LAGO

This tour along the Adige, one of the longest rivers in Italy, impresses with a very special route. After the start, only a few kilometres after the Austrian border, the area becomes a bit more Mediterranean with every turn of the pedal. The unique natural scenery leads past lakes, through gorges, vineyards and enchanting cities to the largest lake in Italy – Lake Garda. Don’t just enjoy the Italian ‘Dolce Vita’, walk in the footsteps of Reinhold Messner and meet Ötzi the Ice Man.

Details about the cycle tour Reschensee – Lake Garda

The stage destinations of this tour read like a ‘who’s who’ of Italian cultural highlights. On day 3 you roll down to Merano with a view of the mighty Ortler massif. Day 4 takes you to Bolzano, where wine, pasta and pizza taste even more delicious in front of the imposing mountain backdrop. Be it a shopping spree or historical voyage of discovery – you should definitely explore the alleys and arcades of the old town.

Accompanied by orchard and grapevines you continue to Trento, where the beauty of the architecture will take your breath away – there’s a reason why it’s also known as the ‘painted city’.

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

  • Magnificent panorama of the Ortler: The Ortler summit reaches 3,905 metres and is a popular destination for alpinists. Passing castles and palaces, on the way to Merano you can also enjoy a great panoramic view of the mountain range ‘from below’.
  • South Tyrolean wine and fruit in the Vinschgau: Apple orchards, apricot cultivation and grapevines characterise this climatically unusual area in South Tyrol. Whether Vernatsch, Pinot Blanco or Gewürztraminer – taste the fine wines where they grow.
  • The spa town of Merano: The air is pure! Merano is considered to be a climatic health resort. A visit to the thermal baths or the botanical gardens at Trauttmansdorff Castle brings pure relaxation.
  • The Lake Garda towns of Torbole and Riva: Limoncello or cappuccino? You can enjoy both at your destination! There is a lot to discover. In the past Torbole was considered a fishing and lumberjack village, that has changed – today it is a Mecca for surfers and sailors! Meanwhile, in the glamorous Riva del Garda you can stroll and soak up the Italian way of life.

Useful information about the cycle tour Reschensee – Lake Garda

Although there are some small inclines to master, this tour is 1,500 metres downhill and is therefore suitable for every cyclists – the tour is also available for families. In addition, the Adige cycle paths are really great.

Wunderbare Tour mit vielen Facetten
Sehr schöne abwechslungsreiche Tour auf super ausgebauten Radwegen, prima Hotels und bestem Service. Als wir am letzten Tag zum Startpunkt zurückgebracht wurden, hätten wir gerne die Tour sofort nochmal angetreten. Nach gemütlichem Frühstück legten wir die Tagesetappen mit kleinen Trinkpausen meist in einem Rutsch zurück, so dass wir schon am frühen Nachmittag im nächsten Hotel ankamen. Dort konnten wir dann nach einer verdienten Ruhephase am Pool oder im Wellnessbereich der Hotels dann erfrischt die Städte erkunden. Die Hotels lagen eigentlich immer optimal nahe der Fußgängerzone bzw. des Stadtzentrums. Daher bekommt man dann noch wirklich was zu sehen und kann noch bummeln gehen. Der Service von Eurobike hat uns bei einem kleinen Problem mit einer liegengelassenen Karte optimal unterstützt und der Rücktransfer hat auch wunderbar funktioniert. Die Landschaft ist herrlich, man radelt vom wunderschönen Reschensee aus vor faszinierender Alpenkulisse auf Top-Radwegen entlang der Etsch und durch riesige Apfelplantagen dem Süden entgegen. Das Klima und das Flair wird immer mediterraner, bis einem dann schließlich der Gardasee zu Füßen liegt. Eine der schönsten Radtouren, die wir je gemacht haben. Sehr gut auch ohne elektrische Unterstützung zu bewältigen. Also kurz gesagt: Ein fettes Like!

Sehr empfehlenswert
Wunderschöne Radtour, besonders die Etappen bis Bozen!!!! Bei kurzen Etappen ist es sinnvoll sich Wäsche zum Wechseln bereits im Tagesgepäck mitzunehmen.

Die Fahrradreise hat sich sehr gelohnt
Route landschaftlich meist sehr reizvoll. Highlight: Blick von Nago auf den Gardasee. Entfernungen angemessen. Unterkünfte gut bis sehr gut. Subjektiver Eindruck war im Caravel am besten. Gut: Fast überall Swimmingpool vorhanden.

Top-Tour
Klare Streckenführung, beste Radwege, eindeutige Markierungen, perfekt organisierter Rücktransport. Wunderbare Kulturlandschaft. Bekannte schöne Städte. Ein ganz großes Erlebnis. Mit die schönste Radtour, die wir je gemacht haben.

Sehr gut
Start am Reschensee, rechte Seeseite schöne Dörfer und guter Radweg. Sehr gute Hotels meistens an der Radroute. Kein langes Suchen nach den Hotels. Beim Grand Hotel in Trient muss man sogar einen roten Teppich zum Eingang überschreiten. Pompöse Eingangshalle. Als Vergleich sind die Matratzen hart und dieses Einzelzimmer im 1. Stock kostet 95.-- Euro. Zimmerbewertung keinen Stern. Die sollten doch den roten Teppich einfach aufrollen...Aber super Lage.

Liebe Frau Huber, vielen Dank für Ihre sympathische Bewertung. Ihre Anmerkung zum Grand Hotel leite ich gerne an unseren Hoteleinkauf weiter! Leider sind Einzelzimmer auch im Einkauf immer deutlich teurer als der Doppelzimmeranteil pro Person. Herzliche Grüße, Eva

Sehr gute Senioren-Reise
Eine fantastische Strecke, guter abwechslungsreicher Radweg mit viel schattenspendender Vegetation, wunderschöne, interessante Bergdörfer. Die Hotels ausreichend gut bis sehr gut, gute Küche - auch für Vegetarier.
