Lake Como to Lake Lugano: E-Bike Three Panoramic Lakes

1. Lake Como to Lake Lugano: E-Bike Three Panoramic Lakes

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.

Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

2. Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

The Senagra Valley is one of the most beautiful and lesser known places in the Lake Como area. Here, the Senagra River flows sometimes placid, sometimes impetuous. On this tour, you'll start by leaving the center of Menaggio as your guide takes you on a discovery of this magical place.  During your walking tour, see a blend of naturalistic beauty and important traces of historical activity. A simple walk through the ancient hamlet of Loveno where you will come across narrow alleys suddenly opens up to spectacular views of the lake and important historical villas. Continuing towards the heart of the valley, magical and little frequented, you will meet a suspended bridge and evidence of the productive history of this place. Visit an old brick factory, now converted into a museum, and an old needle factory which is now a restaurant and trout/sturgeon farm. Get to visit the farm in the company of the owner before sitting down together to taste the typical products of this amazing farm.

We absolutely loved our e-bike tour! It was so much fun weaving in and out of ancient towns and gasping at the unbelievable vistas. The assisted pedaling made it so easy - was not out of breath once! And you definitely make some steep climbs to get to the top, but it’s easy with the electric bike. The midway stop for some espresso and a snack was lovely and hit the spot. We loved our guide and his wife Emily was so sweet and helped us with all the logistics. Highly recommend!

This was the highlight of our 12 day trip to Italy. The views were amazing! Luigi was so nice, and very respectful to the local villagers that we visited. He showed us churches and villages that we would have never found on our own. The bikes were brand new, easy to ride, and I felt very safe enjoying the beautiful scenery. Thank you!

Absolutely fabulous! Stunning views, history, fun and knowledgeable guide, great bikes in perfect condition! Best day tour ever!
