An excellent tour to experience the full benefit or your e-bike and explore the beautiful mountains of this area. The narrow Intelvi valley separates Lake Como from Lake Lugano. It was once home to a number of important artistic families, and holds many other secrets along it’s quiet roads. We pass by mountain hamlets steeped in history and home to surprising architectural gems totally untouched by mass tourism. The beauty of the mountains, the views, and the atmosphere of bygone times transport you far from the bustling lakefront villages of Lake Como. Leaving along a quiet cycle path, we veer onto the southern banks of Lake Lugano. From here our ascent begins towards the Sanctuary of San Pancrazio, the unexpected beauty of this little-known place of worship never fails to impress visitors. We make a special effort to have the sanctuary opened for you. Cycling the best secondary roads of the valley is pure enjoyment with your e-bike. We reach our ‘agriturismo’ at roughly 1000m. This typical local mountain restaurant offers delicious dishes using their own produce and is surrounded by mountain pastures. Fairytale lake views are our backdrop for the return home as we cycle down the mountain to Cardano.
