The Adige cycling path along the Via Claudia Augusta is a cultural experience through gardens and architecture. The cycling path leads you through the beautiful landscapes of the Etschtal Valley from the Vinschgau Valley to Merano/Meran and to the south to Bolzano/Bozen and Caldaro/Kaltern. Here is the description of the tour from Stava/Staben near Naturno/Naturns to Nalles/Nals, which leads you to Merano and further south. Without any big efforts you can explore the wide valley. The tour is ideal for families and bikers who want to take it slow.https://maps.merano-suedtirol.it/en/etschradroute
Take the train to Stava/Staben. If you want to rent a bike, get off the train at Naturno/Naturns. There you find a bike rental just next to the cycling path. Continue your way from there to Nalles/Nals.
You can do the cycling tour all year long. If it snows, the cycling path does not get cleaned.
