Along the cycle route of the River Oglio…my own way! – 4 nights
The cycle path of the Oglio river was nominated by the jury for the Green Road Award "the most beautiful cycle path in Italy" in 2019. This cycle path starts from Passo del Tonale (1888m above the sea level) down to the Po valley, where the Oglio flows into the river Po.
The itinerary includes four days by bike between the upper and middle Valle Camonica, Lake Iseo with Monte Isola, and Franciacorta. The tour starts from the meeting point of the two springs that form the Oglio river in Ponte di Legno (BS), then descends along the Valle Camonica. In this valley there are the rock engravings - first Unesco site in Italy - and it was also named a Biosphere Reserve in 2018.
We will cycle along the eastern side of Lake Iseo arriving at Monte Isola, the largest inhabited lake island in Europe, whose beauty convinced the famous artist Christo to create one of his latest masterpieces right here: "The Floating Piers".
We will spend the last day in Franciacorta, a land known throughout the world for its wine.
Susanna Allegri, certified MTB guide (MTB National Academy) and Environmental Excursionist (AIGAE), will be with you throughout the entire itinerary. In just 4 days you will cross a variety of landscapes that will leave you speechless.
