Holiday Information

A cycling holiday in Italy designed for families who are looking for a week of gentle cycling and fun activities for the children. You'll have time to enjoy the fantastic lake side location, the hotel swimming pools and of course, delicious Italian food & icecream!
You will begin your ride south of the lake, at Peschiera. It's an ideal location to explore the lake and surrounding rolling hills through quiet country lanes and picturesque vineyards, stopping to visit the San Martino della Battaglia tower and Sigurtà Garden Park. Views of the lake are absolutely breathtaking, and there is no better way to finish the day than by settling down with a tasty Italian Gelato or a swim in the lake!
A ferry trip will take you across the lake to Malcesine, allowing time in the afternoon to explore this lovely lakeside town. An exhilarating cable car ride will take you up to the top of Mt Altissimo where you have the option of taking the leisurely ride to Riva or alternatively catching the ferry. The final part of your trip on the north side of the lake is full to the brim of yet more cycling through magnificent landscapes as the lake is surrounded by towering mountains. Your final ride to the Sarca Valley is simply lovely!
Exploring the beautiful vineyards, orchard and mirror-like lakes with the ever present dramatic rock faces either side of you the whole way, is a great way to end a fantastic and unforgettable holiday.
