Lake Garda


Mountain Bike Holiday

Italy – Lake Garda


Sheer peaks rise vertically from the vast lake, abundant vineyards fill the valleys, castles and cobbled streets abound - this is the backdrop to some of the most varied, exciting and technically thrilling mountain biking in Europe. For the mountain bike enthusiast, Lake Garda really does have it all. And we have the very best guides in the region to show you the best of it.

Tour Highlights:

  • Uplifts for the two highest mountain rides
  • Superb accommodation, right on the northern lakeshore
  • Italian food, wine and hospitality


Voted "Best Mountain Bikers Destination in The World", Lake Garda is certainly one of the most stunning places anyone could hope to explore by bike. The peaks, which rise over 2000m out of the Lake, are crossed by superb tracks and trails, providing enjoyment and challenge for all kinds of mountain bikers.

We stay at the best 3 star mountain bikers hotel in the area, a place where you could easily bump into Cedric Gracia or Christoph Sauser, for example, as this is their favourite spot when they come here to ride and train. We’re just minutes from the beach and right amongst the restaurants and bike shops – we can also explore the best of the trails right from our doorstep. Sometimes we ride out, sometimes we take boats across the Lake to our rides, sometimes we use vehicles to get high into the mountains and finish right down by the lake.

These tours have been created by CycleActive in partnership with our friend and long-time Lake Garda partner. Our local guide knows the Garda  area inside out.

We do not produce a formal itinerary for this tour as every trip is unique, depending on trail conditions, weather, the riders needs and experiences and so on. But one thing is certain - if you want the ultimate Italian mountain bike experience – this is it!
