Elba Island E-MTB coast to coast tour

A 3-day off-road bike tour through the Elba, between mountains and clear water

A 3-day off-road tour on your own electric mountain bike (you can also rent it from us at a special price), crossing the Elba Island westwards with two professional MTB guides.

Starting from the village of Lacona, you’ll ride through the Mineral Park of Elba Island in Rio Marina, the oldest mine on the Elba, and admire its typical landscapes tinged with red. On your way to the western side of the island, you’ll then pass by the fishermen’s village of Porto Azzurro, Capoliveri, set on the top of a hill, and finally the beach of Cavoli, to the south-west, where you can treat yourself to a refreshing swim.
Also, you’ll stop at many panoramic viewpoints on the mountains such as Monte Castello, Monte Calamita and Monte San Martino, to name just a few, and enjoy the wonders of Elba’s wild nature. During the tour you’ll be accommodated at the relaxing Residence Il Mandorlo in Lacona.

Setting off from Lacona, you’ll get to Rio Marina’s Mineral Park passing by Monte Castello and Monte Capannello. The park is located inside a wider natural area, the Arcipelago Toscano National Park, and aims at the preservation and promotion of a land marked by a thousand-year old story of mining and men’s work. In the park, the colours of earth mingle with those of the iron creating a unique landscape.
