Lessinia Gravel Weekend SELF GUIDED

Lessinia Gravel Weekend

SELF GUIDED GRAVEL BIKE HOLIDAY

From 135 €/person
May–October 2021 Challenging

A weekend on the Lessinia plateau, along dirt roads in the absolute silence of the mountains

The Lessinia Altopiano is a large panoramic balcony with sweeping views over the Po Valley, the Pre-Alps and the mountains of Trentino. The landscape of Lessinia is the result of the work of man, who for hundreds of years has shaped the area with large pastures, interrupted only by dense woods and stone houses. The plateau is crossed by numerous white roads, which we follow in these two days on a gravel bike. The first day of approach developed mainly between the hills of the Val d'illasi, in a landscape dominated by immense vineyards. On the second day, you travel the entire plateau, then return to Verona following the ridges of the hills. Finally, the gastronomic offer of Lessinia represents one of the highlights of the weekend: it is impossible not to fall in love with Monte Veronese cheese or the gnocchi di malga!

Program

Individual arrival in Verona.

Bike fitting (if rental is included).

Overnight at Residenza Pietra di Verona.

The itinerary leaves Verona following the dirt roads that first flank the Adige river, and then proceeds into the large cultivated countryside up to the base of the hills. The route climbs and descends from the hills offering great views over the Val d’illasi, then follows the valley floor crossing vineyards and cherry fields. The road begins to climb more markedly and reaches the first pastures of the Lessini: the first day ends here, in a small village immersed in the silence of Lessinia.

Overnight at Locanda Via Verde.

You start pedaling uphill immediately, refreshed by the crisp mountain air. We soon reach the white roads of the plateau and follow them, between immense panoramas and the only noise of our wheels on the gravel. There will be the opportunity to savor a cold beer and eat typical dishes in a classic mountain refuge before heading down to Verona. The descent is exciting, on the crest of the hills, with sweeping views over the plain and the city. Let’s go back to Verona crossing the Valpantena, with a surprise ending.
