Transalp Riva – From the Zugspitze to Lake Garda 6 stages – 350 km – 5200 m elevation gain – Level 2

You don’t need to ride at a competitive level in order to cross the Alps in a pleasurable manner. We designed our Transalp Riva for all mountain bikers who want to experience the adventure of crossing the Alps for the first time. Far away from all traffic, we follow the best mountain bike trails to reach Lake Garda. Starting at the mighty massif of the Zugspitze, we climb the Reschen Pass, roll on ancient trade routes through the charming Vinschgau Valley, enjoy Trento's culture and ride through the grandiose landscapes of the northern Lago di Garda district. This has been our most popular tour for many years

My tip for Transalp Riva


„ALPS is particularly proud of this tour. Although we initially called it 'Transalp light', it is anything but a tour with reduced content. Even experienced mountain bikers are absolutely delighted over and over again. This tour succeeds in bridging the gap between a great mountain bike experience and pleasurable cycling adventure. So it includes something for everyone. Even though I've ridden it more than 30 times, I still look forward to each new tour. Because there are always particularly nice people on this ride.“
Anne Kerz, ALPS bike guide for the Transalp Riva.
