Lakes of Northern Italy - Gentle Cycling Tour

Lake Maggiore – Lake Varese – Lake Lugano

8 Days Easy-Moderate 265 KmAVG 44 Km

We simply believe in the idea we can transform the Northern Italy’s Lake District in a recreational bicycling area for riders who are coming from all over the world and in a holiday place for non-riders as well, so you can realise the total experience of staying at our bike hotel and the biking experience seamlessly tie the two together.

We run centre based cycling holidays. You stay in our Eco Bike Hotel Ungheria in Varese for the duration of your trip and enjoy rides before returning back to your base each day. All daily guided and supported rides start from Eco Bike Hotel in Varese.

Rides feature undulating and peaceful roads with little traffic among gently rolling hillsides, valleys and mountains, challenging climbs, descents and above all, views across the Prealps, Alps, the Monte Rosa Massif and Italy’s northern lakes.

Eleven lakes of different sizes surround Varese. You will mainly follow small and scenic roads, with few road signs. Our professional guides are natives of Varese and their experience can help you find the best routes including those hidden lanes and special discoveries you will not find on a map. Some stops are planned along the tour. You can visit villas, gardens, museums, churches, castles and other attractions.

You might think that, alas, this is not the place for gentle and slow cycling. And you would be right. However, we planned itineraries where you can avoid cycling any big hills and medium sized hills too. We are adept at avoiding as many as possible main busy roads.

We offer special activities for non-riders guests, or if you want a rest day.
