Although we are so early in the season some stretches very busy with both bikes and pedestrians. One side of the lake follows the road and at this time of year is rather barren. The Varese side is much more attractive.

I would highly recommend this to local residents and visitors. It’s about 28 km around the lake and a great way to spend a morning or an afternoon. Recent addition of coffee bars along the way make the cycle so much nicer!

We started the ride in Gavirate beach, where we also rented two bicycles from the nice old man who runs the rental shop. The path is well marked, and it is a nice way to explore the area. The path goes around the lake -...More

We hired bikes from our hotel (Vecchia Riva) for 10 euros for the day. Most of the track was through woodlands and countryside rather than right beside the lake itself. There were some short stretches on minor roads, but it was pretty and pleasant on...More

far from traffic, near the Varese Lake, you can find the bike trail lane. It is 27 km long and goes near small cities and woods. There are water sources (not plenty but some), some bar and nice views

Bike trail around the lake is perfect for a tranquillo ride around the lake. But, watch out for the bike rental "noleggio bici" near the Lido della Schiranna part of the lake!! I had the worst experience of renting a bike. It is an absolutely...More

If you’d like to bike ride without the hassle of cars and a pleasurable view with the possibility to have lunch or a drink, then the lago si varese is a great family outing. The whole circumference is about 28km and if you add it...More

Choice of bicycle is not a big hit. Price is reasonable - €10 for three hours. Easy riding of about 30 km. Nice.

I've cycled round Lake Comabbio a few times and it's a great cycle/walking path with good views. However, I was disappointed with the Lake Varese trail - it's longer and I expected more but a lot of the time you're away from the lake and...More

On Lake Varese You can rent bicycles in Gavirate (at the Lido) and in Bodio Lomnago at "Fattoria Gaggio". On Lake Comabbio you can rent bicycles in Ternate at "Montelago Hotel". I wish You a nice trip to Varese.
