Your cycling holiday in Cycling Holidays Italy

Lake Garda | Self Guided | Single Centre

This cycling and activities based holiday is perfectly designed with families in mind, located in the picturesque Peschiera de Garda on the southern shores of Lake Garda. Slightly different to our other holidays, you're based in one hotel meaning you don't have to pack and unpack. You're also situated close to the old town and can relax after a day of cycling in the swimming pool and the surrounding gardens.

Designed with the younger traveller in mind, there are four days of cycling routes which are mainly on flat cycleways or quiet roads. As well as cycling through the spectacular scenery of the region, you and your family will have the chance to visit botanical gardens, one of Europe’s top theme parks and wild animals in a conservation park!

Adult and children’s bikes are included and for young children, we can also provide child seats, child trailers or follow me tandems as well as helmets.

Lake Garda | Self Guided | Single Centre

7 Day Tour

Day 1

Arrive at Verona or Venice. 

Transfer to Peschiera del Garda on the shores of Lake Garda and check into your hotel. Peschiera del Garda is a fortressed town on the south-west of Lake Garda with beautiful cobbled streets interwoven with canals and parks. There are lots of cafes and restaurants in the pedestrianised area and the rest of Lake Garda is easily accessible by a ferry.

Day 2

Round Tour Lugana | Distance 25 miles (40km).

Once fitted with your fully equipped bikes, your first day of cycling will take you on a circular route through the picturesque landscape of Lugana vineyards towards the town of Solferino. Solferino is a small town in the Mantua province of Lombardy and the site of a famous battle.

Day 3

Round Tour Borghetto | Distance 21 miles (35km).

For your second day of cycling you will ride from Peschiera along the gentle River Mincio cycle path that leads to Mantua, reaching the Sigurta Garden Park which is situated next to the ancient towns of Borghetto and Valeggio. Sigurta Park covers 600,000 square metres with paths linking 18 ponds, meadows, a labyrinth maze, beautiful gardens and woodlands. The gardens have been open since 1978 and ever since have been popular with both botanists and families enjoying the fusion of a historical park and modern garden. You can cycle around the 7km park cycle path or take the panoramic train if you prefer.

Day 4

Rest Day.

Today it is time for a rest from the saddle, providing the opportunity for children of all ages to visit Gardaland, one of Europe’s top theme parks. The park is on the south eastern banks of Lake Garda offering many rides, attractions and a sealife aquarium. You can also visit Canevaworld Aquapark and both are easily reached by a free shuttle bus from Peschiera.

Day 5

Round Tour Parco Natura Viva | Distance 21 miles (35km).

After a day off the bike, today’s route will take you to Parco Natura Viva, a zoological park and project to help endangered species all at a reduced rate for cyclists! There are 1500 animals to see including giraffes, hyenas and cheetahs in this superb park north east of Peschiera.

Day 6

Round Tour Garda | Distance 19 miles (30km).

The last day of cycling is a fantastic trip starting with a ferry ride (included in price) to Garda on the east of the lake, before hopping on your bike explore its cobbled streets, market shops and ice cream parlours. The route heads back towards Peschiera via Bardolino one of the most stylish towns on Lake Garda and famous for its red wine.

Day 7

After breakfast, we say “arrivederci” before transferring you from Peschiera del Garda to Verona or Venice.
