Mountain biking around Lake Garda

With a myriad of routes labelled and mapped like ski trails in order of difficulty you can enjoy spectacular biking either on the specially built cycleway by the lakeside or by taking the Malcesine Cable Car to Monte Baldo where there are tecnical tracks and precipitous downhills as well as long meandering tour routes with time to enjoy the spectacular alpine scenery and flowers.

Biking around Lake Garda

The newly built cycle track runs over a 20km route from north of Navene (the home of Europa Holidays) to the south of Malcesine at the beautiful Val di Sogno (valley of dreams). Whether its a quick dash to the shops, restaurants and wine bars of Malcesine or a gentle family outing along the lakeside, the cycleway provides a safe, fun and active way to explore the lake front.

We rent out Felt mountain bikes at the centre and have models suitable for mountain and cycleway cruising.
For the serious rider you would do well to pack your own SPD pedals and boots .

Funivie Monte Baldo - the easy way to the top for mountain bikers and families

Fabulous, exciting biking around Malcesine Lake Garda

Great trails for beginners to experts. Downhill and cross-country roads, tracks and mountain trails with the possibility to use the cable car. Take the Funivie del Baldo up 2000m and cycle back over trails from easy to severe - check the times and costs here and the latest maps here

If you don't fancy a full trail and return home, you can plan your ride to finish in Torbole and take a ferry back to Malcesine which is only 5km from our beach, using the lakeside cycleway.

At our beachside centre, you can rent bikes suitable for the cycle way to Malcesine or bikes with front suspension suitable for an excursion on the mountain. Full suspension downhill bikes can be rented if pre-booked. Serious bikers bring your own SPD pedals and boots. If you are staying in Navene bikes are a great option to get into Malcesine in the evening, the cycle way is illuminated and Malcesine is about 3km from Navene, all on the flat.
