The area of Lessinia, part of the Venetian pre-Alps, is characterized by 3 distinct areas, which in the lower part have the sunny and gentle slopes dedicated to the cultivation of vines and olive trees, the central part with the inhabited centers followed finally by the higher areas, characterized by pastures and main peaks.
Just the higher Lessinia will be the area of our excursion, a route that, starting from the town of Erbezzo, thanks to the pedal-assisted mountain bikes, will take us through easy dirt roads, mule tracks and off-the-beaten-track roads to discover the characteristics of these sweet mountains from the ancient times marked by a strong bond with the forestry-pastoral activities.
Thanks to the skills of our guide, the topics covered will be the geology and geomorphology of Lessinia, the formation of the foothills, karst, botany, local flora and fauna.
A critical study will be related to forestry-pastoral activities and their influence on the territory as well as new tourism on the medium-low altitude plateaus and also the environmental sustainability and new development of the territory.
