Holiday Information

Following the ancient route of La Via Claudia from Lake Resia, on the Austrian border, to the northern shores of Lake Garda, this self-guided cycling holiday has been designed specifically with families in mind. Covering both the emblematic and the lesser visited, this trip offers the perfect balance of stunning views, tasty treats and family fun!
Whilst the Via Claudia was originally used for the transportation of wine and olive oil from Spain, oysters from the Mediterranean and even spices from Asia, it now serves as the perfect cycling route, along secondary roads, country lanes and cycle paths.  You will be provided with route notes, maps, and GPS so navigating the day's rides couldn't be easier, letting the kids join in too! 
The route winds along the River Esch with lots to see and do along the way for kids and adults alike: a visit to the Acquapad centre in Prato, some fun time in the adventure park in Lasa, the mystical Castelbello castle and the dominating Val Venosta. On the way, you have the option to stop off at several small lakes for a dip or try out some lake fishing.  For the adults, day 4 will see you riding “La Via del Vino” where the Gewurztraminer white and Kalterer See red wines originate from, indulging in a well deserved glass of wine in the evening! Day 7 will allow for some fun on the water at Lake Garda with an abundance of watersports, as well as Via Ferrata or canyoning specifically for families.
Accommodation during your journey will be in a selection of quality hotels and a warm welcome will be waiting for you on arrival at each accommodation. We'll book all your accommodation, transfer your luggage and provide you with routes, so all you have to think about is having fun!
