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. Enjoy a shady cycle to the third lake, Lake Piano, and ride home along the old railway line that is now a pretty cycle path.

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!
