E-Bike Excursions 2023


Every Friday

Bike up to Mottarone, the mountain of the 7 lakes

Meeting and bike distribution at 09.00 and departure from Stresa for Mottarone.

From the center of Stresa, about 200m above sea level, the climb begins which takes you through mountain villages, chestnut and pine woods up to the top of the mountain, 1500m above sea level.

The panoramic route gives you sensational views of the lake and the Borromean gulf and winds largely along white and dirt roads that require good bike control.

The mountain between the two lakes, Maggiore and Orta, is the last Alpine bulwark before reaching the Po Valley. Today it is a beautiful park with streams, forests and vast meadows and with a unique view of seven pre-Alpine lakes.

After a break at the summit, you return to Stresa accompanied by a guide who will show you the most panoramic paths suitable for your athletic training.

Daily excursion

Route: White roads and asphalt

Price: €89.00 per person (min. 2 – max 6 people)

Every Tuesday

The Toce Reserve and the "Madonna del Boden" patroness of cyclists

Meeting and bike distribution at 9.00 and departure for the plain of Fondotoce where the nature reserve is located.


From this oasis of protected nature, continue on the cycle path that runs alongside the stream: the flat and peaceful path invites to relax and reflect while the squirrels in the trees and the ducks in the river accompany you along the way.


Arrival in Ornavasso and climb towards the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Boden. The church stands at an altitude of 475 meters in a dominant position over the village and the Toce plain, on a flat strip (in Walser Boden means plateau) surrounded by thick chestnut woods. Since 2009, the Blessed Virgin of Boden has been chosen as the patroness of the many cyclists who visit this sacred place.


The return to Stresa passes through Lake Mergozzo; here you can find the tradition of using stone and the history of the craftsmen who knew how to exploit it in the ancient houses and in the museum.

Ps: In the afternoon it is possible to continue up to Premosello to visit one of the only tea plantations in Italy; over 3 hectares of Camellia sinensis. A challenge that the Compagnia del lago decided to start in 2017 and which is becoming increasingly important for our area.
