  • Eurobike - Cycling fun in Europe!

    The Adige Bicycle Path
    Through the orchards and vineyards of South Tyrol.

    Individual tour and guided group tour
    8 days/7 nights - about 310 km by bike
    Minimum of 8 persons required in a group tour!

    From the North Tyrol Inn Valley by bike to Landeck. The bus will bring the bikers up to Nauders on the Reschenpaß/ Resia Pass. From there it goes usually downhill. More than 1100m altitude difference only between the Reschenpaß/Resia Pass and Meran/Merano. While you enjoy the marvellous view over the eternal glittering ice world of the Ortlés mountain range, you are caressed by the sun rays that shine here most of the time. Not only bikers enjoy this favourable climate: fruit and vine thrive here splendidly. Corresponding to that, the vineyards and orchards spread. You bike through right in the middle. And the Àdige rushing into the valley is your guiding line. People have felt well here over the centuries. The numerous places of interest from all epochs along the way through Schlanders/Silandro, Meran/Merano and Kaltern/Caldaro to Bolzano give evidence of this.

      

    Route features:
    Cycle tracks in the river valleys of the Inn and the Àdige. From Landeck to Reschenpaß/Resia Pass bus transfer. Between the Reschenpaß/Resia Pass and Bolzano there is more than 1200 metres difference in altitude. You still have to cope with some ascents to keep the route running free of traffic.
    Parking:
    Car park garage near the hotel of departure in Innsbruck (€ 45,-- each week, payable on the spot). Unguarded parking lots for free by the stadium.
    Return transport:
    to Innsbruck by train or by mini bus (€ 40,-- per person, bike included, payable on the spot, limited number of places, booking recommended), every Saturday and aswell every Sunday from 10.07. – 28.08.
