A fascinating panoramic tour among the Lakes Iseo, Gaiano and Endine, proposed by bicycle and kayak.
Susanna Allegri, a certified MTB guide, would like to guide you in her beloved places, along an unusual, spontaneous, and personalized itinerary between dirt roads and lake villages. Starting from Pisogne or Lovere, you will get to know the northern part of Lake Iseo, at the foot of the beautiful Camonica Valley, right where the Oglio River flows into the lake, and then exits to the South and continues to the Po River.
You will ride through the historic streets of Lovere, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, home to a prestigious Academy of Fine Arts, the Tadini, medieval towers, and Renaissance palaces. Going up the hills by bike, you will pass by Lake Endine, beautiful especially with the bloom of water lilies, and you will reach Lake Gaiano, similar to the English ones, very popular for carp fishing; on the way back you will enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Iseo.
And here you are again at the edge of the lake, where it will be possible to discover a different perspective, which is that of the coast seen from the lake, through a kayak trip: emotions and fun at the same time, together with the guides of the historical and award-winning society Canottieri Sebino of Lovere.
The kayak route will allow you to return to the starting point of the excursion.
An aperitif together will conclude the outing.
