I have always loved water, I consider it my element. I have been practising river sports since I was 14 years old. After discovering canoeing during a summer at the seaside, once back in Valtellina I enrolled in a canoe course and then the discovery of rafting led me to become the youngest FIRAFT Rafting Guide in Italy.

Full description

Spend awhole day on board an e-bike discovering the most beautiful and evocative corners of the Valtellina and experience the spirit of the mountains to the full!

Accompanied by a local guide, you'll pedal along cycle paths immersed in greenery, forest paths and mule tracks up to an altitude of 2,000 metres, conquering a magnificent landscape.

Asport and nature experience that will engage adrenalin junkies with off-road descents, but will also be within reach of the less well-trained, thanks to the possibility of assisted pedalling.

What we will do

We will meet at around 10 a.m. in Castione Andevenno, in the province of Sondrio. Hand over the e-bikes, and together with the guide we will have a short briefing on the route and the rules of behaviour and safety. After that, we will mount the saddle to set off!

We will cycle along terraced paths surrounded by vineyards and orchards until we reach the Tracciolino, a fascinating route of about ten kilometres that climbs among the rocks and offers breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding peaks.

Our goal will be to reach an altitude of 2,000 metres to refresh ourselves with the specialities of Valtellina cuisine at some farmhouse or traditional mountain hut (lunch is not included in the participation fee and those who wish can have a packed meal).

In the second part of the day, still on board our e-bikes, we will explore various alpine lakes, where we can stop for a moment of relaxation and to take wonderful photos.

On the way back down to the valley, we can unleash ourselves on some downhill sections or follow less steep routes, but no less exciting in terms of environment and scenery.

In total, we will cover about 70 km and 1,000 m of altitude difference, but don't worry, if tiredness sets in, we will be helped by pedal assistance!

The activity lasts 7 hours and we will return to the starting point at around 17:00. The route may vary according to the participants' average level and preferences, subject to the guide's approval.
