Mountainbike in Liguria

Many are the mtb trails in the Ligurian hinterland, to discover alone or with certified certified guides.

Here are some suggestions:

  • Finale Ligure – Le Manie.
    Beautiful and challenging tours, for both number of kilometers to do that for technical effort, one of the most beautiful trails in Finale.
    Across Finalborgo you go up the Manie and climb down to the sweet path of St. Michael's church, which offers a smooth and fast descent to the ruins of the byzantine church, the last part of descent, brief but intense, offers hairpins steeps, sometimes exposed on an old path.
    Famous the “24H of Finale”, one of the most important endurance mountain bike events in the world, able to attract in Finale Ligure, on the Manie plateau, bikers and passionate riders from all over the world.
  • Colla Micheri
    Bike ride for those who do not want to go along several kilometers, or for those who want to test the condition before you leave for more ambitious goals.
    About three kilometers, both from Andora that from Laigueglia, lead to this hill: panoramic view of the sea and place of historical interest.
  • Passo Ginestro, from Villanova d'Albenga
    Long climb, that allows, at first, some breaks and then hit in the final stretch when, particularly for the least ones specialized in the climb, the top of the hill seems to never arrive.
    From Passo Ginestro, the view of hinterland below and the areas crossed by climbing is excellent.
  • The climb La Salita del Priore
    From Vignolo, neighborhood of Nasino, twelve kilometers of panoramic dirt road leading to a mountain environment.
