We hired bikes at Gavirate and loved the scenic ride around Lake Varese. Stopped at Schiranna for lunch and explored the beaches and wildlife en-route.

Went with friends for a four-hour tour, including a good lunch and a coffee-break. The tracks go mostly in the wood, not so much by the lake, but nice anyway. We`d thought it would be more places to eat, but had to go most of...More

I have been wanting to do this my last few visits to Varese but never had the opportunity. We hired the bikes at Schiranna & rode clockwise as instructed. The path is well sign posted & the scenery is varied. You ride through beautiful vegetation,...More

On Lake Varese You can rent bicycles in Gavirate (at the Lido) and in Bodio Lomnago at "Fattoria Gaggio". On Lake Comabbio you can rent bicycles in Ternate at "Montelago Hotel". I wish You a nice trip to Varese.
