Какво ще правите

This fantastic circular route delivers it all: hidden villages, rustic charm, spectacular lake views, quiet mountain roads to cycle, and a stop on Lake Lugano.
Leaving busy Lake Como behind, we wind our way into the Val Sanagra nature reserve – lying just above Menaggio, it is one of the lake’s best-kept secrets. Step back in time as we pass evocative stone houses and old water mills dotted along the banks of a gentle mountain stream. We take a slow cycle further into the mountains, passing historic villages and grassy green fields, and generally enjoying the peace and quiet before the fun begins! A glorious, shady downhill with stunning views guides us onto the shores of Lake Lugano. An effortless cycle to Lake Piano gives us the chance to unwind along the quiet country roads that become our playground.

Today's route will be familiar to locals but would be difficult to plan without a guide. My added touch is to tell you about the many intriguing stories of this area, from the old railway that used to pass by, to hidden WW1 trenches, and the life of smugglers that would travel at the dead of night through the mountains that are today's backdrop.

Tour duration: 3 - 3,5 hours
Distance: 35 km

Technical difficulty: Low - Short stretches of gravel road with low technical difficulty. Non-technical uphills and downhills.

Physical exertion: Low Medium

I am a qualified mountainbike guide and writer. I have written books about my travels hiking and cycling around Italy. The things I have seen and the amazing experiences I have had travelling this way convinced me to give up my office job in public relations and follow my passion full-time. I have cycled nearly every region of Italy (with clients and alone), from lakes, to seas, to unbelievable mountain passes which has also confirmed for me that Italy is truly a remarkable country and her natural beauty and culture are what I want to share with visitors. There is no better way to do this than on the back of a bicycle.

I also have 9 years experience as a volunteer first responder for the Red Cross, trained in administering CPR and First Aid.

This is a great way to experience the natural side of Lake Como and Lugano. Luigi is knowledgeable of the area, all its twists and turns. The route that visits village centers, the Lake Lugano and Piano lakeside, and the forested hills and valley areas. The ebike was in great condition and made going up the step hills easy.

Wow! What an incredible ride….Up, Down, through many villages, back alleys, farms, old train trails, past fancy lakeside villas of old aristocracy, merchants, cardinals and the current rich and famous. Stopped for an expresso at a charming village cafe. Heard history from WW2, partisans, Mussolini, lake history and culture and current life. Luigi is a skilled guide, keeps safety in mind and is charming. We were very comfortable. Some of the ride is a little tough but you can always switch your bike into “TURBO” and you’re good on any hill! SO fun!!! The course was varied and interesting with stops to see vistas and historical sites. It’s a little expensive but well worth it. We’re sure to have it as one of our best travel memories!

Luigi is een vriendelijke gastheer met veel persoonlijke aandacht voor zijn gasten. Wij hebben enorm genoten van de prachtige route tussen de drie meren, door mooie natuur en oude dorpjes. De elektrische mountainbikes maakten het gemakkelijk om hellingen op en af te gaan. Deze fietstocht is echt een aanrader!
