Adige & Mincio

Between Alps and Po Plain: From Schlanders to the Lake Garda an on to Verona

Along the river Adige and Mincio. In between a short distance along the Lake Garda! It is delightful to see the Mediterranean way of life gradually grow from the tart-fresh tyrolean mountain village. A short, pleasant bike ride – surrounded by mountains and beautiful landscapes, past historic villages to Lake Garda and on to Verona.

TOUR PROFILE: A simple tour, mostly flat or slightly downhill. The route was chosen to be mainly on cycle paths. For 90% of the tour you cycle on car-free cycle paths through the changing landscape from the main Alpine ridge via Trentino to the Po plain.
