Adige Cycle Path

From Innsbruck to Bolzano



Tour profile

Mostly paved cycle paths and rural roads in the river valleys of the Inn and Adige rivers. A bus will take you from Landeck to Nauders. From there you will cycle uphill 70 metres in altitude until you reach Reschenpass (mountain pass). Afterwards, you can enjoy cycling downhill for more than 1,200 metres in altitude to Bolzano. In order to stay on calm roads, cycling some small climbs will be necessary.

Day 1: Innsbruck

Individual arrival. Welcome to 3-time Olympic City of Innsbruck. The city in the heart of the Alps is best known as a winter sport destination with special flair but you’ll be surprised about the colourful ambience awaiting you in the warmer seasons. So please make sure to take your time to enjoy the cultural variety of Innsbruck.

Day 2: Innsbruck – Imst, approx. 60 km

The Inn Cycle Path measures some 500 kilometres from St. Moritz in Switzerland to Passau in Germany. Some of those kilometres you’ll ride through the Inn Valley, surrounded by imposing mountain chains. The more or less flat bicycle path leads the way to the famous Cistercian monastery of Stams and then on to the Rafting and Canyoning centre of Haiming. A romantic and slightly hilly ride through a beautiful pine forest will lead you to Imst. Just before Imst, by Roppen you reach a Kneipp water-treading basin Römerbad, where you can cool off your legs on hot days.

Day 3: Imst – Holiday region Reschensee + Obervinschgau, approx. 55 km (without transfer 105 km)

After a hearty breakfast you cycle from Imst to Landeck. From there you take the shuttle up to Nauders. Soon afterwards you cross the border to Italy at Reschenpass and with it the main Alpine ridge. You cycle downhill towards Malles past Reschenstausee reservoir with the sunken church tower of Altgraun, one of the most famous photo motifs of Italy. Enjoy the first evening on South Tyrolean soil and enjoy strolling through the old alleyways of the town.

Day 4: Holiday region Reschensee + Obervinschgau – Merano, approx. 60 km

Today you cross the entire Val Venosta. The route leads from an altitude of more than 1,000 m down to the town of Merano which is located at an altitude of 350 m. Most of the route follows the course of River Adige. From your starting place this pleasant cycling stretch leads down to the smallest town of the Alps, the town of Glorenza. Past the marble town of Laas you get to Naturns and eventually – past the impressive Kastellbell castle – to the spa town Merano. Enjoy an evening walk through town along the “Passer” promenade surrounded by subtropical flora.

Day 5: Adventure in Merano

It’s time to relax – Merano has a lot of options to offer: A nice walk in the “Rosegarden”, a panorama walk through “Dorf Tirol” or maybe a visit at the spa resort of Merano. If you cannot let go of your bike on your “day off”, then you can enjoy a cycling tour along Passeiertal cycle way. On it you cycle past the charming villages to St. Leonhard in Passeiertal to the birth house of Andreas Hofer, the Tyrolean freedom fighter of 1809.

Day 6: Merano – Holiday region Castelfeder, approx. 50 km

There is plenty to see along this route: Niederlana’s famous Schnatterpeckaltar, the largest Gothic wing altar in the Alpine area, the highest church tower of South Tyrol in Terlan and a great number of fortresses and ruins on both valley slopes. And - after the optional visit of Bolzano you’ll have the wonderful opportunity to refresh your legs at Lake Caldaro.

Day 7: Holiday region Castelfeder – Bolzano, approx. 30 km

Yesterday you have already passed by Bolzano. Today you either ride on direct way along River Adige or over the more interesting track passing by the lakes Montiggler right towards the centre of Bolzano. Enjoy to stroll on the footsteps of Ötzi or to relax at Walther Square.

Day 8: Bolzano

    Overall an excellent experience. One weakness was the printed map. The scale and poor resolution made us dependent upon our phones for navigation. A Gpx file would have saved me manually plotting the route each night.
