Below you can find our proposal, but bear in mind that we can PERSONALIZE the tour according to your needs. You can decide the DURATION and the PLACES in the area you want to see to CREATE YOURSELF the perfect holiday for you.
The cycle route along Oglio River is an amazing journey of over 280 kilometers through four provinces of Lombardy: Brescia, Bergamo, Cremona and Mantova.
From 1883 meters above the sea level at the starting point in Passo del Tonale, to the 21 mt. at the arrival in San Matteo delle Chiaviche by Po river, you will ride 1862 meters height difference, experiencing a great change in the scenery!
You will start from high mountains, surrounded by the summits and glaciers of the Adamello Regional Park, and ride across Valle Camonica, famous both for nature and for millennial culture, witnessed by UNESCO heritage rock carving sites.
You will then continue along the Iseo lake, on a path of extraordinary beauty for the landscape and the views, crossing picturesque villages, down to the smooth hills of Franciacorta, home to the famous wine.
Finally you will reach the valley, surrounded by wooded shrubs and agricultural land, your adventure ends at the scenic Boat Bridge of Saint Matthew of Chiaviche, on Po river!
Approximately 70% of the cycle route is on asphalt, and 30% on dirt path.
Since the route is completed for the 90%, we planned a short bus transfer on the 4th day, to make you avoid cycling on traficated roads.
