Cycle tourism on Lake Maggiore

If you love cycling, you’ve come to the right place! Lake Maggiore is jam-packed with bike itineraries and cycle paths. Come and enjoy wonderful views on two wheels as part of an active trip to stay in one of our holiday apartments.

Our Residence belongs to the Italy Bike Hotels network, a national consortium of hotels for cyclists and the Lago Maggiore Bike Hotel, which promotes visits to the area by bike. Enjoy the outdoors, the colourful scenery, and fascinating views of the Terra dei Laghi. We’ve got lots of cycling experiences for you to try out!

The Province of Varese is the perfect place for a bike ride. This area is home to lakes, natural parks and cycling routes, allowing you to combine exercise with a spot of tourism. The climate is mild all year round thanks to the mountains shielding the lake to the north. The hills and valleys are thoroughly enjoyed by road bike lovers, while the nature surrounding the lake presents the perfect opportunity to venture out on a mountain bike.

The Province of Varese is known as the Terra dei Laghi (“Land of the Lakes”), and is home to seven spectacular lakes located at the foot of the Alps: Varese Lake, Monate Lake, Comabbio Lake, Ganna Lake, Ghirla Lake, Ceresio Lake, and naturally, the most famous: Lake Maggiore.

Here, you can pedal peacefully along the lakeside, head into the woodlands and along the river banks of adjacent valleys, or challenge yourself to routes at a 20% incline! Quick fact: Varese is the birthplace of numerous Italian cycling champions, including Luigi Ganna, Alfredo Binda, Claudio Chiappucci, Ivan Basso and Stefano Garzelli.
