For anyone on a cycling holiday on Lake Garda and who loves beautiful panoramic views, a ride along the cycling paths leading to Tremosine, Tignale and Campione is an absolute must.
This bike tour starts in Malcesine, where you'll load your bike onto a ferry boat. That's right, without a doubt this is the best and safest way to reach Limone del Garda, before heading on to Tremosine. A journey within a journey.
Why not discuss and plan the route during the crossing? For example: eager to find out which number along this route leads from Limone to Tremosine? Limone and Tremosine are 9.75 km apart. The highest point along the route is 693 m asl and the route offers a continuous uphill climb along 9.75 km, with An average itinerary gradient of 6.1%. Scared? Well don't be, it's a perfectly doable path!
Upon alighting, get back on your bike and cross the village, continue along the ascent which leads towards the Tremosine Valley, where you can admire views of Lake Garda. You'll go past Bassanega, a popular tourist destination in virtue of its close proximity to the lake, followed by Ustecchio and Voltino. Continue past Fucine to Vesio, the largest and most populous village in this municipality.
You'll then come to a fork in the road: one side leads to Voiandes, in front of Vesio, followed by the junction for Castone and Mezzema, Sermerio (on the spur in front of Tignale), Cadignano, Pregasio, Arias and Pieve. The other side will lead you past Villa, a short distance downstream from Vesio, the junctions for Sompriezzo, Musio and Secastello, followed by Priezzo and Pieve once more, with its sheer drop over the lake, a short distance from the San Giovanni Battista parish church. From Pieve, the Brasa road descends rapidly towards Porto di Tremosine, now a part of the Campione district.
Tremosine belongs to the Brescia Province and is much more similar to an alpine village than a lakeside town. Indeed here you'll get the chance to admire pasture and mountain landscapes immersed in nature. The splendid route along the road leading up to Tremosine is particularly worthy of mention. It takes you past countless woods, canyons and gorges of immense beauty. Tremosine is connected to the gardesana state road by just two roads, one which climbs from Limone towards Garda a Bazzanega, Ustecchio, Voltino and Vesio, and another which leads from Campione towards Pieve (forra del Brasa). Thanks to its vicinity to the lake, the area is characterised by a mild climate in the winter and a summer which is never too muggy. This makes it perfect for a biking holiday any time of the year. Tremosine is famous for its culinary tradition and fine cheeses. The entire valley is dotted with agritourisms and locations where you can savour local dishes and specialities.
As you head back, you can cycle along the gorge and admire the unique and enchanting Valle del Bondo stream which has carved its bed out in the rocks. This part of the route offers wonderful panoramic glimpses as you pass a succession of tunnels leading towards the breathtaking Lake Garda. You will occasionally meet with traffic along the meandering descent towards the Gardesana Occidentale state road, so please take care.
From here take the state road towards Limone del Garda, for approximately 4 km. In Limone, a visit to La Limonaia is well worth a visit, after which you can resume your return towards Malcesine, where you'll board the ferry once more.
