View Holiday Schedule

A cycling holiday in Italy designed for families who are looking for a week of gentle cycling and fun activities for the children. You'll have time to enjoy the fantastic lake side location, the hotel swimming pools and of course, delicious Italian food & icecream!
You will begin your ride south of the lake, at Peschiera. It's an ideal location to explore the lake and surrounding rolling hills through quiet country lanes and picturesque vineyards, stopping to visit the San Martino della Battaglia tower and Sigurtà Garden Park. Views of the lake are absolutely breathtaking, and there is no better way to finish the day than by settling down with a tasty Italian Gelato or a swim in the lake!
A ferry trip will take you across the lake to Malcesine, allowing time in the afternoon to explore this lovely lakeside town. A cable car ride will take you up to the top of Mt Altissimo where you have the option of taking the leisurely ride to Riva or alternatively catching the ferry. The final part of your trip on the north side of the lake is full to the brim of yet more cycling through magnificent landscapes as the lake is surrounded by towering mountains. Your final ride to the Sarca Valley is simply lovely!
Exploring the beautiful vineyards, orchard and mirror-like lakes with the ever present dramatic rock faces either side of you the whole way, is a great way to end a fantastic and unforgettable holiday.

Is this holiday suitable for your family?

This trip is designed for families who cycle regularly and are looking to enjoy more on a family cycling holiday. The majority of the riding is on cycle paths and quiet country lanes with some busier sections getting into and out of the towns during the summer holiday months. Some challenging sections and small climbs are inevitable in such rolling terrain, so not suitable for very young children. There are plenty of other activities to look out for and entertain during the day’s cycle including water sports on the lake, canyoning and an optional visit to Gardaland theme park.
