E-bike Tour of Three Lakes and Idyllic Mountain Life
This fantastic circular route delivers it all: hidden villages, rustic charm, spectacular lake views, quiet mountain roads to cycle, and a stop on Lake Lugano and Lake Piano. Departure from Cardano above Lake Como.
Leaving busy Lake Como behind, we wind our way into the Val Sanagra nature reserve – lying just above Menaggio, it is one of the lake’s best-kept secrets. Step back in time as we pass evocative stone houses and old water mills dotted along the banks of a gentle mountain stream. We take a slow cycle further into the mountains, passing historic villages and grassy green fields, and generally enjoying the peace and quiet before the fun begins! A glorious, shady downhill with stunning views guides us onto the shores of Lake Lugano. An effortless cycle to our third lake, Lake Piano, gives us the chance to unwind along the quiet country roads that become our playground. This tour perfectly showcases how e-biking can take everyone everywhere!
