Lake Garda: Europe’s most beautiful bike ride

Written by Jonathan B on 7th September, 2018

As one of the fastest growing cycling destinations in Europe, there was no way that we weren’t going to set up the best holiday packages in Lake Garda. With this in mind, it was time for another member of the Love Velo team to jump on a plane and find out what all the fuss was about. He returned – tanned and full of stories – with 4 new exciting Italian packages in place and with news that we would be the first cycling operator to provide E-Road Bikes in Italy. I think we’ll call that a successful trip!

Located in north east Italy, Lake Garda is the largest of Italy’s freshwater lakes. The popular tourist spot has developed into a hub of activity, culture and adventure and now attracts 7% of all tourists travelling to Italy. Phenomenal mountains merge into the pristine lake, creating a picture of pure relaxation and tranquillity. It’s no surprise then that the area has been labelled as ‘Europe’s most beautiful bike ride’.2 Cyclists taking a break at the Lake Garda With expectations now understandably high, we wanted to ensure that our holidays were tailored to provide riders and non riders with the best, all-round experience of Lake Garda. One step we’ve taken to ensure this, was providing travellers with the option of road bikes, mountain bike and E-Bikes. Due to the areas mixed terrain, the option of bikes ensures all riders, regardless of ability, experience or age can enjoy exploring Lake Garda the way it’s meant to be explored, on two wheels.

As mentioned previously, we’re also proud to now be providing E-Road Bikes. The Pinarello Nytro, revealed by the popular brand just last year, has revolutionised the cycling experience and is predicted to reshape the sport. Whilst few bike companies are able to offer this, we wanted our clients to enjoy the ultimate Lake Garda experience and it doesn’t come much better than this.

Our Lake Garda to Lake Como Holiday is the perfect place to test out this new bike or, alternatively, ride the stunning route on a Pinarello Dogma F10, also available to hire.View of the Lake Garda If the 130km days on a road bike aren’t for you then check out our Cycling Holiday in Lake Garda package. This trip is perfect for those wanting to explore the lake on two wheels at their own speed and leisure. We recommend staying in Riva del Garda where we have a range of hotels for you to enjoy. Choose a hotel that fits your budget and relax in the north, a particularly scenic part of the lake.

An experienced guide is available if you choose to explore the lake with someone who knows the area. This is a great way to discover the region as the guide will be able to show you the hidden secrets and best views of the stunning lake. Spend the rest of your time in Italy exploring the towns and having a go at the water sports on the lake.

If you’re as excited as we are about our new Italian holidays, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us and start planning your next cycling holiday today!
