Cycling holidays on the Adige
Get a taste of Mediterranean flair amidst mighty mountain panoramas: Cycling holidays on the Adige are a feast for the senses and so varied that the days on the bike will fly by. Illustrious cities with great names like Bolzano, Trento, and Verona, colorful nature, and fascinating people round off a perfect cycling trip.
The Adige is not only the longest river in South Tyrol, but also the second longest in Italy. The river originates at the inconspicuous Reschen Pass, which marks the border between Austria and Italy. Through the Vinschgau Valley, which is one of the most beautiful valleys and most popular vacation resorts in South Tyrol, and the Merano Burgraviate, the Adige reaches Bolzano. There, the Eisack flows into the Etsch, which then leaves the northern Italian Alps and makes its way through the regions of Trentino and Veneto to the Adriatic Sea.
The pleasant climate in the Ötztal Alps, and the dreamlike interplay of river landscape and mountain panorama are precisely why so many visitors like it here so much. You can experience this wonderful region at its most intense during one of our cycle tours along the Adige. As always, we take care of the accommodation bookings and luggage transportation. So you can devote yourself entirely to your vacation.Show more Show less
If you want to experience South Tyrol at its best, spend your vacation in Merano/Meran or Bolzano/Bozen. Our cycling vacation in South Tyrol will take you there! Both towns are shaped by the Adige and have grown up around the river. Many impressive buildings and museums await visitors. A cycling vacation in South Tyrol means cycling on well-maintained cycle paths, a mild climate, a landscape of incredible diversity and first-class local cuisine: important prerequisites for a successful cycling vacation.
From Innsbruck, on the cycle tour along the Adige river through South Tyrol, you can enjoy a wonderful mountain panorama and Alpine flair on your way south to Bolzano. If you want to cycle all the way to the Adriatic, no problem, you can find various cycle tours along the Adige with us. We take you on the cycle tour from Bolzano to Venice on the Adige Cycle Path to Venice, the pearl of the Adriatic. Along the way, you will pass the famous cities of Verona, Padua and Vicenza as well as Lake Garda.
Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. Nestled between steep mountain massifs and gently rolling hills, even Goethe raved about the land where the lemons bloom. Mediterranean-subtropical plants and, of course, lush fruit plantations thrive in the mild climate. Lake Garda is a guarantee for a varied and unforgettable vacation experience.
You can go on day trips by bike from your hotel on the southern shore of Lake Garda, which is very practical for those who don't like packing suitcases. Our cycling vacation on Lake Garda makes it possible. Mantua, Verona, Trento: all this and much more is served up in day-long excursions. Or would you prefer to get to know Bolzano and the Venosta Valley before you set off to explore Lake Garda? On the cycle tour from Merano to Lake Garda, you will experience the Adige river, impressive mountain massifs and fascinating views up close.
The cycle tour around the Dolomites is more adventurous. But with the support of an e-bike, the cycle tour is child's play. You cycle through a natural paradise that has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mountaineer Reinhold Messner is certain: "The Dolomites are the most beautiful structure in the world". If you don't need the gentle support of an e-bike, you can of course also master this cycle tour around the Dolomites on a touring bike.
The River Isarco is the second longest river in South Tyrol and has its source at the Brenner Pass. After around 100 kilometers, it flows into the Adige a little south of Bolzano. If you cycle along the Eisack Valley Cycle Path from Innsbruck to Venice, first follow the Eisack Cycle Path to Bolzano. Magnificent views of the Dolomites are guaranteed. The route is spectacular and varied. From Bolzano you cycle along the South Tyrolean Wine Route, Verona and Vicenza, now on the Adige Cycle Path, to Abano Terme. In the famous spa town, you can treat yourself to a rest before it's only a few kilometers to Venice. And as everyone knows, the City of Water has so much more to offer than the Grand Canal or St. Mark's Square, the Rialto Bridge or the Doge's Palace.Show more Show less
