Take in the stunning beauty of Lake Como on this seven-night trip and experience one of Europe's most scenic train journeys, the spectacular Bernina Express / Bernina Red Train, which winds its way through the Swiss Alps to St Moritz. Your tour begins in Tirano, where you will cycle through medieval villages and visit Romanesque churches, before you take the mountain railway to the renowned ski resort of St Moritz.
The next stage of the journey is through stunning Alpine mountains and forests and past sparkling lakes, along the cycle route of Val Chiavenna. After stops at fascinating lakeside towns, a Cistercian Abbey and the Sanctuary of the “Madonna of Sassella”, the tour ends in Tirano where there is more time to explore the historic centre.
This scenic circular trip through the Swiss and Italian Alps is mainly on dedicated cycle paths, which makes it perfect for beginners and more experienced cyclists alike. Above all you will be able to taste the typical specialities of the Valtellina, like the bresaola and the pizzoccheri together with a good glass of nebbiolo.
