“A must do”

Lake Varese bicycle trail
Ranked #3 of 102 things to do in Varese
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 19, 2014

It's actually a must do in Varese. although the whole path is not near the lake and it goes to a jungle half way but the whole was breathtakingly beautiful. it was impossible to pass and not willing to stop to take a picture every five minute. we went on a Saturday afternoon. It was not that crowded first but moving to evening many people came to walk. so it'd be better to go on weekdays or before the evening on the weekends.
hope you enjoy it as much as we did :)

We were recommended this walk with our dog, but it is too crowded. Other pedestrians are not always dog-friendly.. Result:: we had to keep him always on the short leash, no pleasure for us nor the dog.

Like a sort of tradition, my family and I do the bicycle trail almost every Boxing Day!
It's definitely worth it.
In December it's a bit cold but as long as you keep cycling you are warm. The landscape is beautiful, so fascinating and also mysterious, when there are spots with a bit of mist over the lake and among the reeds.
Living nearby, I use the trail for running as well all year, so for tourism I recommend spring months because of nature, but also because bars and ice-cream sellers are open and the weather is really nice, not cold and not hot yet.
If you use the parking lots at Schiranna, check if there is the fair because it can be crowded and during those days parking is not free.

Do not exist a path for bikes, it is impossible eve to walk in same points,I don't suggest to go by bike,just by walk,but there is nothing to watch,except a dirty lake and smell of dead water,because the city don't make maintenance.

Friends lent us a bike but you can rent them too on the cycle path. its 27 km long and takes about 2 - 3 hours but it depends on how often you stop for ice cream! Only disappointment is that you aren't so close to the lake all the time but its ALL off road which is nice. Sometimes too many people to make it fun as you have to concentrate all the time - worth getting up early to beat the Sunday family walkers!
