Trekking Via Claudia – From Mittenwald to Lake Garda 6 stages – 400 km – 4300 m elevation gain – Level 1-2

A great adventure! All bicyclists agree that a Transalp, i.e. crossing the Alps, is one of the greatest experiences ever. A particular highlight is the route from Mittenwald, nestled in a kitschy Upper Bavarian landscape, to legendary Lake Garda. Our route follows historic trails through the Inn valley up to the Reschenpass, shows the highlights of South Tyrol and ends up immersed in the dolce vita of Northern Italy. The trip isn't about athletic performance, it's about becoming acquainted with nature and people along the route. We'll be giving streets with lots of traffic a wide berth.

My tip for Trekking Via Claudia

„Coarse gravel roads are not a must for crossing the Alps. For our Transalp Trekking Via Claudia route, we combined the smallest side streets and quiet cycle paths so cleverly that everyone can experience a Transalp without engaging in acrobatic riding. The tour is even suitable for 24-speed or (better) 27-speed trekking and hybrid bikes. It offers cultural highlights and nice places to lunch. A vacation can't be any nicer.“
Severine Petersen, ALPS bike guide for the Transalp Trekking Via Claudia.
