There’s nothing quite like the beauty and tranquillity of the Italian Lakes. This unforgettable section of northern Italy has inspired countless artists and writers with its majestic bodies of water, soft green hillsides and dramatic mountains.
Transport yourself to another time, another place, as you journey through the natural wonders of this iconic area. Let us take you there – cycling Lake Como, Maggiore, Lugano and Varese, enjoying a selection of stunning lakeside rides through the Lombardy countryside and its enchanting towns.
Yet the mountains soar above the lakeside vistas, providing a range of challenging climbs for even the most experienced cyclist to relish. Marvel at the sheer drama of the mountains as you traverse the Stelvio Pass (with 40 hairpin turns on the Bormio side and 48 on the South Tyrolean side), Gavia Pass and Mortirolo Pass – complete with tunnels, switchbacks and mindboggling drops.
We feature the most breathtaking routes to ensure a hugely memorable cycling holiday in Italy. So, keep your camera handy at all times – you won’t want to miss out!
