A new way to explore Italy's largest lake is coming soon: a 140 km trail that circles the wonderful Lake Garda in the north of the country.

The project, called Garda by Bike, has been in the works for two years and is expected to open by 2021.

The trail is being built from existing cycling lanes and newly built paths that will take you from Lombardy to Trento and Veneto. The project will be a success amid the current coronavirus pandemic in Europe, allowing travelers to spend more time outdoors and socially distant. Garda by bike will also link with the Eurovelo Route 7 and Eurovelo Route 8 European bike routes.

Although the complete route is a long distance, the bike path is suitable for families: it is wide and does not include any steep climbs. The loop can be traveled with any type of bicycle, as the path is made of wooden planks. A particularly picturesque section, which is already open, runs 2 km from Capo Reamol on the western shore of the lake and hugs a rugged section of cliffs above the water.

Garda by Bike isn't the only exciting outdoor project Italy has in store. In June, the country announced a new hiking trail called Sentiero dei Parchi that will link all 25 of its national parks.

The trail will incorporate sections of the existing 7000 km of Sentiero Italia, which already pass through 18 of the 25 national parks.

The Minister of the Environment described this project as an important sign of “how much we value our immense natural heritage and its appreciation when it comes to sustainable tourism, especially in this post-COVID time when we all feel the need to be a little further out”.
