DifficultyDifficultyDifficult

It’s possible to ride around the whole perimeter of Isola d’Elba, both in a clockwise and anticlockwise direction. It’s 109 kilometres, but fun times are guaranteed.

Description

Not only beaches and cliffs, sun and sea… on Isola d’Elba paths unwind drawing perfect trajectories along the coast, vineyards, olive groves and the fragrance of aromatic herbs. This is the case with the route going around the whole island, both clockwise and anticlockwise: 109 kilometres with continuous rises and descents, and a couple of short but challenging climbs such as Volterraio and Monte Tambone.

If you choose the clockwise side, you’ll have to tackle the tough face of Volterraio, while in an anticlockwise direction you can cycle along the outer lane of the road, more exposed to the wide stretches overlooking the sea, but ideal to better enjoy the jagged coastline and views of the island.
