Cycle tour for fun-lovers

Peschiera del Garda-Solferino-Borghetto-Park Sigurtà-Park Natura Viva-Garda

Lake Garda is one of the nicest and largest lake of Italy, in the south surrounded by moraine hills and in the North enclosed by mountains. Its shape, long and narrow, is similar to a fjord. The mild Mediterranean climate makes it an excellent place to enjoy sun, water and nature. The lush green hills are covered with olive groves, lemon and orange trees, palms and vineyards producing excellent wines. In this area we find the famous Bardolino and near Verona the excellent Valpolicella. These wines you can combine with local dishes to enjoy in restaurants with stunning lake views. Around Garda lake, there are many beaches, thermal baths and cosy lake villages with local markets to visit.

This is an relaxing tour, suitable for everyone, because the cycling is easy and your children will have lots of fun. Of course lake Garda does not offer only cycling entertainment, but also the excitement of wild animals, steep roller coaster or mysterious labyrinths. It is a real paradise for children… and not only also adults will feel themselves youngsters again. Around the lake we find everywhere amusement. Just name it Jungle adventure park, Gardaland, Caneva Acquapark, Acquapark Riovalli and Movielandpark. So this is a real tour for fun-lovers.
