South Tyrol Valleys

Day 1 Bolzano

Arrival at the hotel.
   

Day 2 Renon roundtour (30 km)

In the morning you will take the cable railway for an evocative round trip on the Renon plateau, the riviera of the Dolomites. In the 1600s, Renon was the preferred summer residence of aristocratic families from Vienna and Bolzano, who built splendid alpine cottages which you can admire today.
   

Day 3 Bolzano – Lake Caldaro (45 km)


At the beginning of the tour you leave Bolzano behind you and slightly uphill you will pass the higher Appiano. This is followed by a descent through the vineyards to the Lake Caldaro, one of the largest lakes in South Tyrol, where bathing is possible from May to September. By Ora follow the cycle path along the river Adige north again.
   

Day 4 Bolzano. Day of rest.

Take the opportunity to visit Bolzano or to relax in the hotel. Its mediaeval city centre, Gothic and Romanesque churches and bilingual signage give it a unique flavour of a city at the crossroad of Italian and Austrian cultures. For those who wish to pedal also today, we suggest the itinerary to Trento along a very nice and quiet cycle path (approx. 70 kms) from where you go back to Bolzano by train.
   

Day 5 Bressanone – Bolzano (45 km)


From Bolzano the train takes you to Bressanone, the artistic and cultural capital of the Isarco valley. Here you can visit the baroque Cathedral and an interesting Pharmacy Museum, located in a nearly 500-year-old townhouse. From Bressanone you cycle
along the valley, passing through Fortezza and returning finally to the capital of South Tyrol.
   

Day 6 Merano – Bolzano (35 km)

By train you reach Merano and start cycling along the Venosta valley, among apple orchards and vineyards. On your way you ride past sleepy little towns like Nalles and Andriano. Still cycling along the cycle lane you reach your destination, Bolzano.

   

Day 7 Bolzano

After breakfast end of services.
   
     

Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen; in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.

We have personally chosen this 3*/4* hotel mindful of your comfort as well as the proximity to cycling paths and any relevant local sites. All rooms have en suite facilities and are equipped with air conditioning.

When you book the tour please specify the type of room requested:

double room is a room with one double bed
twin room is a room with two single beds
triple room is usually a room with one double bed and a single bed or a rollaway.

South Tyrol Valleys

Ride and relax from Bolzano

Mountain panoramas, green landscapes and quietly flowing rivers: the tour can offer you all this. Bolzano is the capital of South Tyrol and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Dolomites’. Surrounded by their beautiful peaks, this city is in a valley just 265 meters of altitude and has a pleasant climate. In Bolzano both German and Italian are spoken.
