Get a taste for the nature, culture, and cuisine of Northern Italy all in one trip. This day biking tour leads you winding roads of excellent conditions through the mighty Dolomites. Immerse yourself in the Italian countryside of tiny villages, high mountain peaks, and tasty cuisine.
The biking adventure begins in the town of Tenno, a commune settled among mountains near a famous glacial lake. Cycle around Lake Tenno and see this bright turquoise water with your own eyes. Continue to Pranzo, another tiny peaceful village established among the giant Dolomites.
Keep those legs peddling as you head north towards the town of Ballino, where you tackle the 15km (9 mi) Passo del Ballino. Tackle this route of considerable uphill sections and make it to the Limaryo Canyon. Over years of erosion, the Sarca River has carved out a maze of rock formations.
This entire 65 km (40 mi) brings you excellent views, and it brings you to excellent food as well. About 3/4 into the journey, you stop at Cantina Pisoni for a wine tasting and lunch of Italian specialties like including local meats and cheeses. Kick back with a glass in hand and admire the Dolomites around you. Head back to the starting point with a belly full of wine, food, and happiness.
When you dismount your bike, you feel well acquainted with Italy’s countryside. You feel you accomplished a long trek. And you definitely feel those long uphill sections.

A very good experience. The number of exposed sections were shorter (but with considerable difficulty) than what I had expected. Hiking along the steep path carved out in the mountain was the mainstay. But 5/5 to our guide Matteo who was an expert mountaineer (he helped a fellow climber cross over a difficult section when she got badly stuck). Overall a very memorable experience!

Best day ever, easy to find very reliable and friendly staff. Plus you get to see some really great scenery on your way to the steering point. First class canyoning and the guide Andrea needs a pay rise.

This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Lake Garda! Such an amazing experience with one other solo traveller and our guide Andrea who immediately put us at ease with his sense of humour and easy going nature. He also kept a watchful eye on our safety as we were both first timers on a via ferrata climb. The views were spectacular ...even better than I anticipated! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun yet challenging activity

Location was very nice, instructor was friendly and experienced. We had a lot of fun! Only thing that was a bit confusing was the pickup. We booked through OutdoorVisit but we're supposed to find the tour operator (MMove) at the crowded pickup point. They didn't seem to be able to find our reservation, but after 20 mins everything worked out. This meant that other people had to wait for us though.

Fantastic day out. The guys were great, made it a laugh and I 100% recommend. I’m afraid of heights and water and managed to do it, my adrenaline was pumping. Lots of jumps and abseils. It is a little scary but you feel great and really feel you achieved something afterwards. I think the reps were called David and Andreo they were great!
