From Torbole sul Garda to Riva del Garda by ferryboat and back by bike!
When the sun shines and you have a huge lake and a city bike with you, what do you get? Well, unforgettable emotions, I dare say!
We lived such a day at Lake Garda. Spring was already in the air and a fresh breeze was caressing our face.
Towards Riva del Garda
To begin our tour, we rented our bikes in our of the many bike rentals.
To go towards the port, we could feel a carefree atmosphere. The streets of Torbole sul Garda full of shops, the squares full of cafés where you can enjoy your cup of coffee staring at the surrounding landscape. We arrive to the ferryboats ready to discover numerous destinations! We decided to leave for Riva and to come back by bike, but you can leave for many other destinations and choose several crafts such as the fast hydrofoils or the slower motor vessels to enjoy the panorama.
We carried our bike onto the Motonave San Martino. The journey lasts only 12 minutes… a short but amazing one!
From the lake, the coast looks like a painting. The mountains look even higher and get bizarre silhouettes like Monte Baldo that looks like a cap. You feel tiny in front of them. You feel good under the sun. You feel good while looking at the horizon. This experience deserves it!
From Riva to Torbole sul Garda by citybike
We got down the motor vessel and began to ride. In Riva and Torbole, the Ora – the strong wind blowing from the north – was our cycling mate while we admired the lake and the historical points of interest of Garda Trentino. For example, the Bastione was calling us from a distance. Unique. Riding from Porto San Nicolò, we observed the beauty and majesty of Forte San Nicolò – you can also take a break here and drink fresh water at the fountain at Porto San Nicolò. History, culture and nature. Lake Garda Trentino gives its best when you discover it by bike!
Finally we got to Torbole sul Garda, after a 20-minute ride. So comfortable, so beautiful.
This easy route is suitable for families and it is very romantic and panoramic, so try it with your partner.
