From Stresa you go up Mottarone with the cable car. All pedalling on dirt roads, the descent is a real shot of pure adrenaline among woods and meadows. A major elevation difference: starting at 1,490 m altitude to reach 200 m.
The mountain between the two lakes, Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta is the last Alpine challenge before reaching the Po Plain. Today, it is a green park with streams, forests and vast meadows blessed by the view of the seven Alpine lakes. For the adventurous, we also recommend the ascent.
