Val d’Adige cycle track: Trento - Bolzano

The bikeway of the Adige stretches from Trento towards north and goes past vineyards and fruit orchards.

Cycling along the Adige river.. enjoy cycling in the flat valley, past fruit orchards, vineyards and mountains, this is what we recommend to anyone of you who loves this sports, no matter if you are a beginner or a skilled professional. Starting from the centre of Trento at the Adige riverside, we proceed towards north along the eastern riverside. Having left behind the city, the landscape mainly presents apple orchards. At Vela, the cycle path parallels the Brennero motorway for a little while and branches off to the left in the shade of the Paganella.

At the protected area Foci dell’Avisio (mouth of the Avisio into the Adige), the cycle track gets around the meadows in a loop and leads to the village of Zambana, which is famous for the asparagus cultivation. We proceed across the Rotaliana plain, mainly characterised by vine-growing, with its main places San Michele and Mezzocorona. A few km farther, we reach the Chiusa di Salorno, that is to say the border of the Trentino and the province of South Tyrol, which is also considered a linguistic border (Italian/German).

From here we proceed to the Bassa Atesina to Bolzano and Merano, the cycle trail basically follows the course of the Adige. From here you can for instance also reach Lake Caldaro or Appiano by bicycle. For the way back to Trento you have the possibility to use regional trains with bicycle transportation service that stop in several villages along the track.
