Northern Italy to Venice: Land, Bike and Barge Tour

April 26 - May 6, 2023

  • April 26 - May 6, 2023

    This 11-Day tour offers you a unique opportunity to combine a more classical bike & hotel tour with a bike & barge trip in the Po Valley till Venice. The cycling route starts in the heart of the superb Dolomites and following the course of the river Adige takes you to the palm-lined shores of Lake Garda. Further on you will reach the enchanting Renaissance town of Mantua, where you will embark aboard the Vita Pugna. Cycling along waterways, through hamlets and into the surprising Ferrara, you will reach the Po Delta, a unique wetland park which is the prime reserve in Europe for herons and home to several colonies of flamingos. The Po river flows eventually into the Venetian lagoon, where you will cycle through Chioggia, known as “little Venice.” At the end of the trip, you will be welcomed by beautiful Venice, a town that has lured passersby for centuries.

    Whether you are a new or veteran cyclist, this unique European bike and barge tour is ideal for you. Our fully supported tour will provide a one-of-a-kind bicycle adventure and access to all the best-kept secrets of this area.
