Vinschgau – a holiday paradise
Cycling holidays in the Vinschgau
The Bike Eldorado in South Tyrol
For mountain bike trail enthusiasts, MTB in the Vinschgau is an ultimate holiday dream. The road system was originally designed as an easier way to irrigate the region’s meadows and orchards – and nowadays it provides almost endless possibilities for cycle trails of all difficulty levels. Furthermore, the Vinschgau Valley’s famously arid climate creates optimum conditions for dry trails and sunshine.
However, the Vinschgau is also a favourite destination for pleasure cyclists, and the diverse landscapes of our winding valley can all be explored by bike. The cycleway is over 80 km long and follows a slightly downhill route along the Via Claudia Augusta, an ancient Roman road. This trail is very popular with pleasure cyclists and families, and a pleasant journey to Meran is a great holiday experience for both young and old. Those feeling particularly sporty and energetic could then cycle the Etsch Radweg as far as Bolzano, or even on to Lake Garda.
We are very happy to receive enquiries about bike holidays in the Vinschgau!
