South Tyrol

From Merano to lake Garda.

South Tyrol from its best side! You will set off by bike from the Meran basin. You will keep cycling through orchards and vineyards and past palaces and castles and by doing so you mill make your way across Bolzano, Trento and Rovereto and then finally to the magnificently blue lake Garda. You can enjoy the tasty Italian meals just as much as the Mediterranean scenery. In almost every district in southern Tyrol you will find a swimming pool to cool down in. Or you can grab yourself a tasty “Gelati” on your way. At the end of your family cycle tour, the beach area by the glistening lake Garda is waiting for you with its many places to play and to do sport. Swimming fun and “Dolce Vita” is guaranteed for the whole family whilst on the cycle tour in southern Tyrol and in Trentino.

Itinerary

Arrive in Merano and move into your accommodation. The travel documents and rental bikes (if booked) will already be in your hotel.

Today you set off with the Vinschgaubahn towards the Reschenpaas. From Laas, you will cycle down to Merano. In Rabland, the train world museum are waiting for all upcoming train driver enthusiasts. Or you can go on a detour to the Alpin-Bob-Meran 2000. A short bus journey and then you will be at 1900m. From there you will quickly get down into the valley with the mountain toboggan. Great fun for everyone.

approx. 40 km + train ride

You will set off on your cycle tour today from the lovely spa town, Merano. You will cycle past orchards and vineyards and you will be able to sense the Mediterranean flair. The great palaces and castles are silent guards along your way. Take a short detour to the mystical labyrinth garden in Tschrems or cool down in the Nalser swimming pool. Once you have arrived in Bolzano, you can pay a visit to the Ötzi museum or you can simply enjoy the “Dolce Vita” in the historical old town.

approx. 35 km

Today you leave South Tyrol’s capital. Cycle along the river Adige and continue on your way. You can then smell the wonderful smell of the orchards again. Here is where the Adige valley opens up to its widest point and you can really marvel at the Mediterranean nature. You will spend the night in Auer, which is a typical village in South Tyrol, which still maintains its character and its genuine, south Tyrolean hospitality.

approx. 25 km

After a good night’s sleep and in a good mood, you are now refreshed and ready to go for your next day’s cycling. Today’s cycle path runs right through extensive vineyards. You visit a particularly exciting place for children with climbing rocks, ruins and animals on your way to visit the Biotop Castelfelder. Today you will leave the most southern part of southern Tyrol and also the language border: from now on you will hear more and more Italian.

approx. 45 km

Trento with all of its museums, its heritage and its old town are all waiting for you on this discovery tour. Stroll leisurely through the little streets before you then continue on by bike. Cycle past the powerful Beseno Castel, which sits enthroned above the Adige valley. Your cycle path will then take you through vineyards to Rovereto. In Rovereto, dinosaur fans can follow the traces of the dinosaurs on 5 small trails.

approx. 25 km

Today your bike route leaves the Adige valley because lake Garda is now waiting for you. In Mori, you can try the all-round famous pistachio ice cream in the gelateria Bologna. After the only noticeable hill on this tour, you speedily cycle downhill past the blue lakes to Torbole. You will spend your last night in Torbole or Riva, two well-known holiday destinations, which are well-known for their innumerable possibilities for different sports. A wonderful end to your magnificent cycle tour in Italy.

approx. 25 km

Today you have to say goodbye to the Italian flair. Or you can enjoy the sun for another day at one of lake Garda’s beach areas. You can also get to Gardaland (a theme park) quickly from here….

Tour character
