Our new tour in 2017 was so good we had to run it again this year. The “lakes region” of northern Italy and the Dolomites are well known to seasoned travelers & cyclists around the world, and for good reason. Scenically spectacular—loaded with wonderful overlooked byways, villages and vistas. Let VéloSki lead you on a 15-day Lombardy Lakes and Alps bicycle tour you’ll never forget. Lombardy is tucked beneath Switzerland and among the Alto-Adige, Veneto and Piemonte regions of Italy. It encompasses a diverse culture of industry, wineries and tourism, all situated within the valleys formed by the Southern Limestone Alps: the Dolomites, Adamello Alps, the Brenta Group, the Gavia Group and the Garda Mountains. The lakes and passes of Lombardy remain an insider’s special treasure…and this is another place where it all comes down to who you know....

And you can trust that VéloSki knows the way. We'll unplug from the most popular of the lakes (Maggiore, Como, Varese, Lugano) to explore along Lake Garda—the largest of these alpine Italian jewels—as we approach, and then climb and ride among the towering Alps. The Garda Mountains are bounded by the Po Valley to the south and by the Brenta Dolomites in the north, the Etschtal valley in the east, and Valli Giudicarie to the west. The climate of the Garda Mountains is very mild as a result of its southerly location and influence of the Mediterranean Sea. Our weather should be perfect for cycling. In spring temperatures between 15-20 °C are expected. The VeloSki route will lead you from the southern end of Garda as you explore all the way to the northern end, including a high traverse along beautiful and quiet roads that border on unbelievable. You'll discover a truly special region of alpine lakes and passes where in-the-know locals go to escape the hurried pace of their home cities. Yet few ever venture out on a bicycle where we'll ride; for the most part we'll have the roads to ourselves. On this unique VéloSki bicycle tour you will traverse the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia and Sondrio and enjoy the smooth roads and serenity of the famous Valtellina and Valcamonica wine valleys. We'll taste and enjoy the fruit of the very vines we ride alongside, and enjoy hearty meals of local produce of the highest quality. Then, after leaving Valtellina, we'll approach the ancient spa town and ski area of Bormio where we'll not lack for even more delicious cuisine. The wonderful food and wine pairs perfectly with the demanding route options that unfold in all directions. It just happens that Bormio is the epicenter of the most famous climbs in all of Italy: Passo Gavia, Passo Mortirolo, and Passo Stelvio. Reserve your space on this tour today because space is limited—and there's never been a better time to ride in Lombardy.
