A brand new bike trail will open in Italy, going around the beautiful Lake Garda, which can be found in the northern parts of the country. The trail will allow cyclists to explore Italy’s largest lake via an 87-mile long trail.
The New Bike Trail Project is Called Garda by Bike
The bike trail project has been in the works for the last two years and is called Garda by Bike. The trail is expected to open by 2021 and is put together from newly built paths and existing cycling tracks. On it, you can get from Lombardy through Trento and to Veneto. The project is expected to be a success because it will allow travelers to spend time outdoors while remaining socially distanced. Garda by Bike will also become a link between the European cycle routes that span the continent, more specifically Eurovelo Route 7 and 8.
The Bike Trail Is Perfect for Families and Does Not Have Steep Climbs
Despite being a long-distance route at its fullest, the bike path is actually family-friendly. It’s wide enough and doesn’t have any steep climbs. The loop can easily be done with any type of bike, partially because the path is made of wood planks. One section that is already open and runs a bit more than a mile from Capo Reamol is particularly picturesque and goes on the lake’s western shore. It hugs a rugged section of cliffs situated above the lake water.
Italy is planning other exciting outdoor projects in addition to Garda by Bike. This June, the country announced Sentiero Dei Parchi – a new hiking trail that will connect its twenty-five national parks. The new hiking trail will use sections of the Sentiero Italia – an existing trail that spans thousands of miles and passes through eighteen of the twenty-five national parks.
The project was described by the Minister for the Environment as an important sign that shows the value of Italy’s natural heritage.
Everything You Need to Know About Camping In Iceland
Iceland is a beautiful country that’s perfect for adventurers and nature lovers alike. However, because it’s so sparse and organic, most accommodation options can be found in the larger towns and cities. If you’re not about that city life, you don’t have to worry, because camping in Iceland is now easier than ever. By setting up your tent and enjoying the natural world around you, you can appreciate everything that Iceland has to offer without getting stuck in any tourist traps.
Check The Availability
It’s illegal to camp anywhere that isn’t a designated camping area in Iceland. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry too much about that as there are more than 170 campsites in Iceland, which means that you have lots of different options to choose from. However, it’s very important to check the availability of these campsites before you travel there – because they can still get pretty busy.
No Fires Allowed
Most people love to build a campfire when they go camping, but once again, this is actually illegal in Iceland. Because of this, you’re going to have to think about what you’re going to pack before you embark on your camping adventure. Although many campsites come complete with grills, it may not be possible for you to use one, which is why you need to think about meals that perhaps do not need to be cooked for too long.
One of the most important things you need to remember about camping in Iceland is that you need to embrace nature. Iceland offers stunning landscapes that really do need to be seen to be believed, but make sure that you leave your campground as you found it. Do not leave your trash behind, and take care of the space around you.
Looking to go camping in Iceland? Well, we really don’t blame you. It’s an incredible experience that can’t be missed.
