Discover the complete itinerary

Our guests can use a bike free of charge for a panoramic trip along the bike and foot path that circles the lake for 27km.

The itinerary clockwise:

Bikes ready to pick up and straight away in front of our hotel there is the splendid view from the small harbour of Bodio Lomnago, surmounted by Monterosa and Campo dei Fiori.

Continuing towards the left we suggest that you turn right at the first crossroads, momentarily deviating from the path; here you will find the old town of Cazzago Brabbia, passing by the ancient "ice boxes" where winter ice was stored to preserve the fish caught in the hotter months. The ride then continues, where, having reached the town's cemetery, you join the cycle path again.

(Continuing for around 5 km it is possible to take the cycle path that reaches Lake Cornabbio, approximately 4 km away).

Continuing the Lake Varese itinerary, after a couple of kilometres you reach the pier of Biandronno where it is possible to embark for the island of Virginia, renowned for its pile-dwelling museum. This is the half-way point of the itinerary!

Leaving the town of Gavirate, deviating left off the path, you can visit the interesting and quaint 17th century Benedictine Cloister of Voltorre. Returning to the path, continue through Calcinate del Pesce and on to Schiranna, the fully-equipped lakeside lido of the town of Varese.

Riding on for 4 km you reach Azzate where you can visit the Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary of the Lake and after a few kilometres you're back at the point you started out from.

Happy riding!
