Garmisch - Lake Garda

The tour leads from Garmisch over the Reschenpass to Lake Garda. With its 6000 m ascent and about 378 kilometers in 5 stages this tour is ideal for Transalp beginners. The difference between this tour and the tour Garmisch – Lake Garda enjoy is in the daily riding duration and the additional meters of altitude.
This is an ideal Transalp for beginners mainly on well established cycling routes. Although the stages are not technically difficult, they are challenging our physical fitness. A basic fitness is a fundamental requirement for this tour.
For landscape lovers: Zugspitzmassif, Reschenpass, the apple orchards of the Vinschgau Valley, the Brenta Dolomites and last but not least Lago di Garda. For culture lovers: The romantic castle Fernstein, the medieval town of Glurns and the Mediterranean spa town of Merano. For culinary delights: A culinary journey from bacon, cheese and Schlutzkrapfen to antipasti, pasta, tiramisu and cappuccino.
From Garmisch we start our tour to the Eibsee at the foot of the Zugspitze to Tyrol. A panoramic mountain highway leads from Ehrwald to the deep blue lakes at the Fernpass. Offside the Fernpass federal road we follow the footsteps of the Romans and enjoy the descent to the little village Nassereith and further along to Imst. Through the Inn Valley we follow the old Roman Road Via Claudia to Nauders. We cycle along the Reschenpass to Italy. Past the Grauner Tower which significantly rises up out of the Reschensee, we cycle further south and finally get to the apple orchards of the Vinschgau to Merano. From here over the Gampenpass – with 1518 m ascent the highest pass of our tour – into Val di Non, in the shadow of the Brenta Dolomites. The last day we cycle on spectacular paths to Lake Garda.

Details & stages
05:00 pm: In the evening we meet up for dinner in Grainau. Get to know each other, bikecheck, tour preparation and trip briefing based on maps.
From Grainau we start our tour along the picturesque placed Eibsee at the foot of the Zugspitze. We climb up to the Hochthörlehütte in Tyrol. Here we can be excited about our first downhill: On single trails and speedy asphalt we roll down to Ehrwald. We cycle nicely up and down along the panoramic trail above Biberwier to Weißensee and along the old Roman Road Via Claudia Augusta we cycle over the Fernpass to Imst.
Today we start the day pleasantly along the Inntal Cycle Path over Mils, Schönwies and Zams we have enough time to bring our legs to their operating temperature. This should be done the latest in Landeck where we cycle up the Fließer Platte where you can still see the ruts of the Romans. From up here we can enjoy beautiful views of the Inn Valley. A nice singletrail winds its way from Fließ down into the valley and re-emerges us finally down at the Inn. Over Prutz, Ried, Tösens and Pfunds and after a short excursion to Switzerland we have to conquer the Norbertshöhe and finally get to Nauders.
A small climb, then we have conquered the Reschenpass. Welcome to Italy! In Glurns we take a break for our first "genuine" Italian cappuccino. The main ridge of the Alps is behind us. We experience this due to the cosy warmth which welcomes us in the Vinschgau. Further we roll along the Etsch to Merano – its downhill almost all way!
Today the Gampenpass lies ahead of us! We cycle smoothly to Lana. From here a small street leads in parallel to the mountain pass road up to Völlan. The first meters of ascent are quite steep and exhausting but it gets flatter. At the Völlaner Badl we enjoy delicious apple strudel and cappuccino. After Völlan we ride on wonderful shady forest paths to the top of the pass. Here we take a lunch break. The Val di Non is famous for its gentle hills, deep canyons, sleepy villages and widespread fruit plantations. Following a beautiful panorama mountain highway we get to Lago di Santa Giustina. Only one last short climb separates us from our final destination for today - Cles.
One of the most beautiful stages of this tour! The route “Dolomiti di Brenta Bike” leads us at the foot of the original Brenta Mountains to the picturesque Lake Molveno. A 2,4 km long tunnel, which can only be used by hikers and bikers leads us to a fantastic mountain path. Similar to the South Tyrolean Waal Paths this way leads us along the valley without notable differences in height. We enjoy the simple single trails and beautiful panoramic views. On a varied way we cycle up to Andalo. Just one short downhill and we are at Lake Molveno, here we take a long extended break on the lakefront. After lunch we cycle on beautiful walking paths and trails to the Sarche Valley. After a brisk downhill we take course on the historical little city Arco. From here, we only have a few kilometers to cycle to Lake Garda. A dip in the lake and then the corks are finally popping!
After breakfast we depart with the bus back to Grainau.
