Today we opened our second location in Varenna! We are excited to introduce our returning and new customers to the many great outdoor possibilities on the Eastern branch of the lake! You may already be familiar with some our road biking routes from Varenna, like the famous Into the Wild and Valsassina: Valley of Cheese routes. However, nearly all of our new routes are partially or for the most part off-road! Our Varenna store and rental will have more of an offroad focus, given the trail possibilities beginning right behind our shop. We will have mainly E-MTB and MTB rental options at Bike It! Varenna, as well as our road and other models. The famous climb to Passo Agueglio at 1,173m a.s.l. begins just 100m from our shop, the entire climb can be done on the road or mostly trail. The view from the top (and on the way) is one of the best on Lake Como, definitely worth the climb!
Did you know that some of the best hiking itineraries can also be found on the Lake Como's Eastern branch? There is even the famous Sentiero del Viandante or "Wayfarer's trail" that runs from Lecco all the way to Colico at the top of Lake Como, with consistent views of the lake from above. We recommend taking a day to hike part of this trail, we have divided it into 5 sections, each part is equally as beautiful and easy to reach to start/finish where you like given the Train line that also runs from Lecco to Colico. Gabriele, Bike It! Varenna's assistant manager, is also a certified hiking guide. Contact us to reserve a guided hiking tour on this famous trail!
Our new biking routes range from easy to epic in terms of technical difficulty. All of the routes are difficult in terms of elevation gain given the mountainous terrain, so for this reason we recommend renting an Electric MTB unless you are used to riding frequently in the mountains! We will be running three of these routes as daily tour options from Varenna, join us for a memorable biking experience during your stay in Varenna! Check out our new routes Varenna from our E-MTB/MTB routes page and our Varenna Daily Tour Schedule.
