Bike Tour: Trentino Dolomites from Passo Resia to Lake Garda - 7 days

Glide through glacial valleys in South Tyrol and Trentino, discovering traditional ways of life in quaint villages. Span the heights, from alpine elevations at Passo Resia (1455m) to sub-Mediterranean shores on Lake Garda. En route, take in grand views of the Alps and Dolomites, pedalling among premium vineyards and colourful orchards. Stop off in Silandro with its soaring bell tower and linger in the ambience of elegant Merano. Savour a creamy cappuccino in Bolzano, where hills and vineyards lead up to the rugged spires of the Dolomites. Save time later for Trento’s Piazza Duomo, exquisite fountain and impressive Buonconsiglio Castle.

Day 2:    Transfer to Passo di Resia and ride to Silandro
50 km

Set off with a one-hour transfer to Passo Resia. Then begin by bike, coasting along Lake Resia past a submerged tower jutting out of the water. Wind down a panoramic cycle path among alpine meadows and pause in lovely villages like Burgusio and Clusio. At lunchtime, the impressive fortified town of Glorenza awaits. Afterwards, follow a quiet bike path through endless orchards on the River Adige. Take a break in Lasa to visit the marble museum then finish with a short stretch back to Silandro.

50 km, 350m ascent, 1300m descent 

 

Day 3:    Ride from Silandro to Merano
38 km

Pedal down Venosta Valley among snow-capped peaks and vast pine forests. Stop to savour a cappuccino in lively Naturno and blend into local life. Take the bike path into a narrow gorge, then burst out into a broad glacial valley. Sail onward to Merano, the centuries-old spa town where Princess Sissi convalesced in a unique microclimate. Next, while away the afternoon hours on foot and happen upon hidden corners in this magical place.

38 km, 150m ascent, 470m descent

 

Day 4:    Ride from Merano to Caldaro via Bolzano
48 km

Shoot along through rows and rows of apple trees to reach majestic Bolzano, the capital of South Tyrol. Turn south as the bike path winds along, now among vineyards, and roll past the village of Caldaro (Kaltern in German) to reach the lakeshore.

48 km, 340m ascent, 475m descent

 

Day 5:    Ride from Caldaro to Trento
53 km

From crystal-clear Lake Caldaro, strike out on the ‘Strada del Vino’ (wine route) to a series of wine-making villages. Glide down into Adige Valley to pick up the cycle path to Trento. Take a breather at a ‘Bici Grill’ (cyclists’ bar) and explore ancient villages like Egna and Salorno. Once in Trento, languish along lanes in the Old Quarter and spend a dreamy afternoon Italian-style. 

53 km, 295m ascent, 325m descent

 

Day 6:    Ride from Trento to Riva del Garda
48 km

Carry on along the bike path accompanied by the blue-green hues of the River Adige. From Rovereto, head westward on a gentle climb to get stunning views of Lake Garda from the pass. Complete your day with a short downhill section and take Riva del Garda’s twisting medieval streets all the way to your hotel.

48 km, 150m ascent, 500m descent

 

Optional extra day:   Circular ride in Riva del Garda

Book an extra night in Riva del Garda for a spectacular loop ride into ‘Valle dei Laghi’ (Valley of the Lakes). Snap a portrait of palm-studded Arco, where rocky slopes are crowned by a medieval castle. Ride a bike path lined with grapevines and apple trees to the pristine waters of Lago di Cavedine. Pause for a scenic lunch beneath the imposing rock faces of Monte Brento and Monte Casale. Traverse the rockslides of Marocche di Dro to circle round to Arco, then follow the shores of Lake Garda from Torbole back to Riva del Garda.

45 km, 390m ascent, 390m descent
