Merano - Lake Garda

South Tyrol, Etsch cycle path and lake Garda

From the Alps to the Lago

Spring, summer or autumn, South Tyrol is always worth a trip especially by bike.

Relax, recuperate and enjoy a bottle of the world renowned Kalterer wine. Appreciate the well-maintained and stunning cycling paths to your final stop, the impressive Lake Garda - the crowning finale of this very attractive tour.

Itinerary

Travel documentsand rental bikes (if booked) are to be found at the hotel.

You drive with the (train) Vinschgaubahn in the direction of Reschenpass. You cycle from Mals to Glurns (with complete extant medieval city wall). Afterwards you cycle via the ruins of Montain through the region Schlanders down to Merano. You have a nice view to the castels. and the impressive mountain mass. You can short the distance stage.

Bike Tour Fehnroute

You follow via Lana and many fruit orchards and vineyards the south tyrol wine route. This one leads past castles and ruis to Eppan.

There are two ways to get to lake Caldaro: either the slightly hilly way on the bike path via Eppan or on the flat cycle path along the Adige dam until the charming wine village Auer.

From Auer you continue on the cycle path along the Adige dam. The ‘Salurner Klause’ is the end of the German speaking part of South Tyrol. The route leads you through the famous Trentino wine regions into the ancient diocesan town Trento (lovely old part of town, cathedral, Buonconsiglio palace).

Shortly after the old Tyrolian border town of Rovereto, our cycling tour leaves the Adige valley. In Mori you will taste the world famous pistachio ice-cream in the Gelateria Bologna. After the only ascent worth mentioning (approx. 150 m)over the small San Giovanni pass, the path leads downhill along the lake towards Torbole. The cycle tour either ends in Riva or Torbole.

Tour character

An easy cycle tour, mainly on cycle paths. Only towards lake Caldaro and lake Garda will you come across minor ascents.
