Full description

See hidden villages, rustic charm, spectacular lake views, quiet mountain roads to cycle, and a stop on Lake Lugano on this fantastic circular route. Explore the valley behind Lake Como on this tour perfect for nature lovers. Leave busy Lake Como behind and wind into the Val Sanagra nature reserve, lying just above Menaggio and one of the lake’s best-kept secrets. Step back in time and ride by evocative stone houses and old water mills dotted along the banks of a gentle mountain stream. Ride uphill into the mountains, passing historic villages and grassy green fields, and take in the peace and quiet. Explore charming, authentic village squares untouched by mass tourism. Continue on to a shady downhill with stunning views including sections of an old Medieval road and be guided onto the shores of Lake Lugano.

This was the best excursion I have done in years. The terrain was unbelievable and Luigi was outstanding as a guide. If you are not confident on a bike, you may say to think twice as there is substantial incline and decline for a city bike tour (that goes into the mountains). Please don’t let this discourage you! I did the tour with my wife, mother and mother in law (all who do not ride) and we made it just fine!

My daughter and I booked this tour on a short visit to Como. It was by far the best part of our trip. It was so scenic and we felt we saw many hidden gems and embraced the local culture during this short tour that we would not have seen otherwise. Luigi was so knowledgeable and friendly. It was a really relaxed and fun experience and the bikes were amazing to ride also. The route was just fab!!! We would highly recommend!!

Okay, we just finished our tour this morning, and it was GREAT! Although the weather forecast called for rain, we were blessed with clear and wonderful skies. Luigi is a terrific guide, the bikes are very good (I’m an ebike owner myself), and the views are amazing! We enjoyed some cappuccinos, gelatos, and scenic views along the way. Tip - we were staying in Varenna, so we had to take the 8:30 ferry over to Menaggio early in the morning. By calling them the day before, Bebike arranged for a driver to pick us up right at the ferry station at 8:45, and we easily made our 9:00 start time. They also arranged for the same driver to take us back down to the ferry after the tour. Wonderful service, terrific family, and a perfect end to our Lake Como experience! Grazie!
