There is nothing better than cycling while admiring the breathtaking scenery over Lago Maggiore and the whole surrounding region.

Whether you are a sportsperson, highly trained looking for new challenges or simply lovers of healthy outdoor bike rides, Cardada is definitely the place for you.

Riders can go up with MTBs and electric MTBs! At the chairlift’s departure, instructions on how to attach your bicycle are well indicated. Only one cyclist with his bike can be carried on one chair.
