“A bicycle ride”
Halfway between Porlezza and Menaggio, take your bike and go wherever you want safely
We always suggest to our customers to bring bicycles when they come to us. The location of the campsite is strategic for taking a bike ride. Halfway between Porlezza and Menaggio, you can choose where to go to spend the day. The path to Porlezza is flat and suitable for children of any age. The stretch for Menaggio, on the other hand, can be more difficult, especially on the way back due to the climb. With a total route of 13.35 km, it is made up of asphalted and dirt parts.
Taking the campsite as your starting point, to go towards Porlezza you have to turn immediately left once you exit the gate and follow the lake to the little house of the reserve. Then follow the numerous signs along the way. It is about 5 km to get to Porlezza. The course is simple, mixed asphalted and unpaved and practically all cycle-pedestrian. Also suitable for children, it is practically all flat and well signposted.
This time instead of going down to the lake, once we leave the campsite we have to take the road that leads to the main road and turn right immediately after the first house, in the small street. Proceed for a few meters and the road will divide into two paths (as you can see in the photo alongside). Take the paved road on the left. From here begins a long Path of about 8 km that will take you to Menaggio. The path is well signposted and only a small part of the path is next to the driveway. Unlike the track for Porlezza, however, this is more complicated, with a fairly important slope so it requires more sport preparation. Very beautiful and with a breathtaking view it is definitely to do if you feel like it, even better if you have electric bikes with you. Once you arrive in Menaggio, however, you can certainly enjoy a nice break in some bars in the main square in front of the lake, a true paradise on earth.
