Passion for sport together with fun is what makes me alive, since I was a boy I used to spend most of my time at the seaside and riding my bike, which today has become a big part of my job.

Full description

A panoramic tour dedicated to all nature and mountain-bike lovers. One of the most beautiful routes in the area, offering extraordinary views of the coastline and theTuscan Archipelago.

Have fun on the heights of Monte Argentario, crossing downhill stretches and points overhanging the sea. Adrenaline is guaranteed, but there will also be moments of relaxation in the cool of the maritime pines.

An experienced guide will accompany you and help you experience this adventure to the full. The route covers varying degrees of difficulty and can satisfy bikers of all levels, including the most demanding enthusiasts.

What we will do

We will meet around 10:00 a.m. in Porto Santo Stefano, in the province of Grosseto. We will meet the guide, receive our mountain-bikes, and prepare for our departure (hire is included in the price!). Leaving the centre of town, we will begin to climb up the promontory of Monte Argentario.

Hairpin bend after hairpin bend, we will reach an asphalt road that will lead us up to the Capo d'Uomo tower, 350 m above sea level. In the last stretch the climb is demanding, but the effort will be repaid by an exceptional view from the summit of the knoll overlooking the coast below.

The route will continue between hairpin bends and dirt roads in the direction of Porto Ercole, a town that has been one of the most beautiful villages in Italy since 2014. For lunch we will stop near Forte Stella, a defensive fortification dating back to the 16th century, so called because of its characteristic shape.

In the afternoon we will pass by the Orbetello Lagoon, a WWF Oasis that provides a habitat for many species of aquatic birds, including the beautiful pink flamingos. The return to Porto Santo Stefano is scheduled for 15:00.

The route is 41 km long and includes quite challenging uphill and downhill stretches.
