Happiness on two wheels

6 itineraries that combine the joy of cycling with the flavours of traditional cuisine

It’s hard to imagine a healthier, greener way to spend the summer than on top of your saddle stroked by a refreshing mountain breeze.

And of course, there are off-road tracks, not to be missed if you want to test your adrenaline.

Lakes, mountains and alpine valleys, the options are endless. Plus, when you need to refuel, you can stop at a one of the mountain huts along the route: hearty dishes from the regional cuisine and a relaxing ambience full of character, for a feeling- good summer holiday. 

So, start to warm up, unfold the map and choose your ideal route.
