Mountain Bike experience is an activity designed for both young and old, a new way to discover the area on two wheels! Riding your bike between the coast and the interior you will be able to admire the lush nature of the island and its crystal clear sea and beaches. The routes are suitable for cyclists of any level and experience. You will be able to reach fantastic panoramic points, perfect for a souvenir picture of an unforgettable holiday. Remember to always bring your swimsuit with you for a makeshift swim and a packed lunch, for a little gastronomic break in nature. For the less daring, for some years the "green turning point" of some Elban municipalities has led to the birth and growth of numerous cycle paths to be able to pedal in peace and safety within the various areas of the island. If you prefer not to bring your bike from home, you can rent it from authorized dealers or directly at the hotel. If you are a professional cyclist, there are many competitions on the island, sign up before it's too late!
