Experience the roads of the Varese 2008 World Championships and some stages from the Giro D’Italia as you and your friends ride along the banks of Lake Maggiore. Explore the outstanding treats our area has in store for cycling fans as you ride from Varese’s Sacro Monte (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) to Mottarone via Lake Orta. This holiday is for groups of friends (min. four people) who love trying the local good and wine in addition to discovering new, exciting routes packed with cycling history. Every ride offers an opportunity to stop and savour excellent food and fine wine.

Detailed information about the routes (mileage, route profiles, and average times) will be provided by the bike manager upon your arrival so that you can choose which route best suits your fitness level. The bike manager will often accompany you during your tours.

If you come with someone who doesn’t ride, we can provide maps and directions for covering scenic routes effortlessly using the Nordic Walking technique. We will provide the Nordic Walking poles.
