CYCLING IN THE DOLOMITES AND LAKE GARDA

Cycling in Italy’s South Tyrol is incredibly scenic as you weave through deep valleys and apple orchards down to the shores of Lake Garda. Expect to see ancient castles, rustic Tyrolean villages and vineyards scattered across the verdant valleys.

Choose between mountain trains to viewpoints or challenging yourself on ascents up bike paths. Pedal from the remote, rugged mountain landscapes in the Dolomites to the glamorous Lake Garda, before you reach the lively and romantic city of Verona.

Food and wine on a South Tyrol cycling holiday

Tyrolean Food & Wine

In the Dolomites, the locals tend to eat a hearty fare of game and polenta paired with robust and fruity wine from the South Tyrol. Menus include meat stews, risottos, gnocchi and tortellini. Risotto all’Amarone is a popular risotto with a generous amount of dry red wine from Valpolicella. Followed by either apple strudel or the Veronese cake, Pandoro, which is served with mascarpone, chocolate or cream. The perfect end to a day’s cycling in South Tyrol.

What our experts say

South Tyrol is one of Europe’s premiere cycling destinations thanks to an excellent network of cycle paths. While the terrain around you is full of staggering mountains, the cycling is in fact very gentle with most routes following the river valleys downhill. The region has a fantastic reputation for food, with Italian traditions mixed with Germanic flavours that create a truly distinctive cuisine.
