Hiking, Trekking and Biking
Walking and biking in Valsugana
Levico Terme is the ideal base for those who love traveling mountain paths and forest roads or – where allowed – pedaling their bike. Among the numerous opportunities of the territory is the rich amount of itineraries that cover the Lagorai chain and the nearby Dolomites, “the world’s most beautiful mountains” recently added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Not only for “Fat Tires”
The Valsugana sets apart for the “Via del Brenta” (Brenta Road), a long flat bike path that runs from Pergine to Bassano del Grappa. Equipped with “bicigrills” (multipurpose stations that offer food and drink, maintenance and biking info), span all along the windy road that passes through apple and corn fields and by ancient castles in Pergine and Ivano Fracena.
Mountain bike lovers can choose among a large variety of mountain trails of any experience level – trails from the Dolomites Lagorai Bike circuit.
For Excursionists and Trekkers
Decked out in your best mountain gear with a backpack and the will to emerge yourself in nature in the discovery of alpine lakes, woods, flowered meadows, in a magical dimension regenerating your body and mind… There are a variety of hiking itineraries for all skill levels, from enthusiasts to casual hikers.
