Four days of riding around the seven lakes in the Province of Varese. Starting off from Lake Maggiore, we explore a variety of different, evocative routes to discover the other six lakes that add to the Province of Varese’s unique appeal. As we cover the roads of the Varese 2008 World Championships and some stages from the Giro D’Italia, we will also have opportunities to savour some of the local food and wine during the rest stops.

A combination of sport, good food and fine wine plus a sprinkling of culture. We organise evenings at the La Scala Theatre in Milan during March and April, depending on the calendar.

Detailed information about the routes (mileage, route profiles, and average times) will be provided by the bike manager upon your arrival so that you can choose which route best suits your fitness level. The bike manager will often accompany you during your tours.

If you come with someone who doesn’t ride, we can provide maps and directions for covering scenic routes effortlessly using the Nordic Walking technique. We will provide the Nordic Walking poles.
