General info

The Lago d'Idro is on the one hand a mountain bike El Dorado. On the other hand, the area around the beautiful lake also has many other experiences to offer, which we do not want to withhold from you. Cooling down in the lake included!

From the Valvestino Valley, over the Piccole Dolomiti and along the Austrian-Italian border we will be on the road by mountain bike, discovering trails and landscapes full of contrasts.

This is followed by a cool down in the lake or a round of SUP or you turn a round by canoe or boat. If that's not action enough for you, cliff jumping and canyoning are also widely available at Lake Idro.

A dinner typical of the region will round off the day.

Accommodation
& Catering

Ever heard of glamping? At Lake Idro, tiny houses await you as accommodation on the spacious glamping area directly on the shore of the lake. The small houses offer much more space than a normal hotel room (terrace, living room, kitchenette, bathroom, toilet, 1-3 bedrooms) and are completely new and finely designed.

 

Alternatively, you can book it without overnight stay and spend the night with the van / camper / tent on the campsite (in this case, please book your place directly at the campsite). Your price will be reduced by € 420 if you book without overnight stay. Just specify "without overnight stay / breakfast)" in the comment field when booking.

Catering

We enjoy breakfast together in the restaurant at the glamping site. In the evening we will have a barbecue or sit together with pizza. One evening we spend in a typical osteria on the mountain.

Interesting spots/trails

At Lake Idro, trails and mountain bike tours never run out. Below we present you some suggestions. The actual tours and trails will then be adapted to the group and the weather on site.

Valestino - the forgotten valley

  • Five-village tour: To the trails of Capovalle - Moerna - Persone - Armo - Bollone. Start in Capovalle (shuttle) - 4 short climbs (each 200 - 300 hm) and 4 even as long trails (all super flowy on forest floor). Then a trail over 600 Tm back to the lake and by boat to the camp. A total of 1,100 hm climb and 1,700 hm trail.
  • Monte Manos Start in Capovalle (shuttle) - 600 hm climb to Monte Manos - numerous single trail options to the mountain village of Treviso and from there on an old military trail back to the lake.

Piccole Dolomiti

  • From Passo Maniva to Pertica Alta Start at Passo Maniva (shuttle) - to Capanna Tito Secchi - from here horizontal trail over 10 km at about 1,600 m to Passo Croce (scenically very exciting) - over natural single trails to Pertica Alta and Pertica Bassa and from there back to the lake. In total about 800 hm climb and 2,100 hm trail. Super tour par excellence.
  • From Passo della Berga to Presegno Start at Passo Maniva or Passo Baremone (shuttle) - to Passo della Berga and continue over fascinating old war paths to Valle della Spina - visit the two beautiful mountain villages of Presegno and Bisenzio again up (10 min carrying distance) to descend on flowing old cart paths to Lavenone. In total about 700 hm ascent and 2,000 hm descent.

Historical Austrian-Italian border

  • Giro Bruffione Start in Gaver (shuttle) - 700 hm to Passo Bruffione - then about 10km always over 2,000 m on single trails along the border ridge - descent to historic Bagolino (different levels of difficulty possible) - from Bagolino flowing trails back to the lake.
  • To Monte Tombea Start in Capovalle (shuttle) - Via Magasa to Cima Tombea (1,300 hm) - on trails further to Cima Caplone and over old war routes with numerous tunnels further to Bocca di Lorina -the Tremalzo is already in sight, before we meet Lake Garda bikers we branch off but in the lonely Valle Lorina.

Rest day would be the wrong word - we enjoy contrasts and the possibilities of the lake. Rental equipment (including SUPs, canoes, boats) are available.
