Lake Como is a paradise for mountain bikers and touring cyclists, offering a multitude of cycle paths of varying degrees of difficulty, both for families with children and for the passionate cycling professional. Enjoy great views and landscapes while cycling. Highly recommended: mountain bike tours on Lake Como around the golden lake triangle. The Y, the popular magic lake triangle invites you to great round tours. You can cross over to the other side of the river by boat at any time and thus flexibly design your tours. The boat trip also invites you to take a break and enjoy Lake Como. For those who want to take a more relaxed approach or are travelling with younger children, cycle paths along the shores of Lake Como or in the valleys are recommended. The Valtellina and Chiavenna valleys, for example, offer great scenic bike tours on the plain. Here you will find beautiful cycle paths in the countryside, sometimes passing rivers, such as in the Pian di Spagna nature reserve. In the valleys you cycle on the plain and have few climbs.
We have put together some popular tours and bike trails on Lake Como for you.
Easy tour near Gravedona and Domaso. Here Santa Croce Trail goes from Lake Como up into the mountains. You cycle a difference in altitude of about 520m, the trail leads along old mule tracks and, among other things, past the historic church of Santa Croce (which gave its name to the tour).
Mountain bike tour around Lake Como on old, paved mule tracks over idyllic chestnut paths and deserted villages. Moderately difficult tour with up to 760m difference in altitude. You will be rewarded with beautiful panoramic views over lake and mountains.
More difficult tour above Gera Lario. Starting point is the hamlet of San Bartolomeo, from here you go up into the mountains with views of the Minter Berlinghera, Chiavenna Valley and Lake Como of course. The difference in altitude is up to 1,059m.
Start in Domaso heading north. Cycle paths on Lake Como are mainly meadow and field paths, as well as serpentine roads to the most beautiful panoramic points north of the water.
Tour between the two arms of the lake. Challenging trail with about 2,500 metres of altitude to climb. At high altitudes you will be rewarded with fantastic views, and down on the shore you can stop at the beach and cool off in the lake.
