Cycling route running through the whole of Valle di Ledro, from Lake Garda to Lake Ampola via Lake Ledro.

Gradually, as one pedals on, the surrounding landscape changes, the Mediterranean scenery gives way to more alpine surroundings, holm-oaks and cypresses are replaced by firs and pines and later by water lilies and rushes as one reaches Lake Ampola.
