This ride through Italy and Switzerland takes you to the largest and most breath-taking pre-Alpine lakes.

Every passing day brings with it a new landscape that serves as a worthy companion while tackling tricky ascents. The tour runs with a maximum of only seven people, guaranteeing you an exclusive experience with a knowledgeable guide who knows the route like the back of their hand.

The ride begins in Arona where the shores of Lake Maggiore will give you an insight into the beautiful scenery that dominates this ride. You’ll get to know more about the trip as the guide gives a briefing of what will happen in the coming days. The following day your voyage to vast valleys and stunning mountains begins.

Earn the bragging rights to say you’ve cycled between two countries as you wind your way between Italy and Switzerland. Follow this feat by taking a cable car to Monte Sasso del Farro, to enjoy one of the best views of the lake.

The Italian lakes of Maggiore, Como and Iseo serve as the focal point of this trip. The beauty of these lakes are unparalleled, but the moments in between are also special. One example is the ride up to Monte Generoso, surrounded by unspoiled nature and followed by a thrilling, swift descent.

Count yourself a member of an exclusive club as you get a rare chance to pay homage to the patron saint of cyclists, Madonna Del Ghisallo. The ride is optional but who would want to turn down this opportunity?

Your last day of riding is an action-packed affair that takes you gliding around Lake Iseo and through picturesque villages. With cars banned here, bikes reign supreme and it is a pure cycling dream as you head for the final stop of Montisola.
