    Adige Cycle Path Meran - Lake Garda

    From Spa Town to the "Lago"

    • Spring, summer or autumn, South Tyrol is always worth a trip especially by bike. Glistening ice caves, mountain massifs, bountiful orchards and vineyards transform your journey into a sensuous adventure. Cycle downwards into the valley as far as Bolzano along the Adige river. Relax, recuperate and enjoy a bottle of the world renowned ‚Kalterer’ wine.

      Appreciate the well-maintained and stunning cycling paths to your final stop, the impressive lake Garda - the crowning finale of this very attractive tour.

      Day 3: Bolzano - Trento, approx. 70km
      Along the river Eisack out of Bolzano until you reach the Adige where the beautiful cycle path leads you through fruitgardens until Salurn, where the german-speaking part of southern Tyrol ends. Now the vines of the strong redvine "Teroldego" accompany you until the nice old town of Trento.
