near Riva del Garda, Trentino-Alto Adige (Italia)

A tour aimed at those with good preparation or on an e-bike who want to avoid technical routes and do not mind peddling on asphalt.

This tour can be enjoyed all year round and although 600 meters is an altitude difference accessible to many, there are long stretches of climbing at approximately 10%, with few opportunities to rest. The route, for the most part is on asphalt and the remainder, on dirt or cobbled roads in good condition. From a technical point of view the route is suitable for all abilities. However, attention must be paid to road crossings and descents especially.

Along the way you will have the opportunity to admire the stunning scenery of Garda Trentino, surrounded by olive trees, vines and chestnut trees. Lake Tenno is one of the most beautiful in the area, and even though the route doesn’t go there directly, it’s a definite must-see. And during the summer it’s possible to take a refreshing dip too.

Author’s recommendation

In summer it is a joy to swim in the waters of Lake Tenno. However, it is forbidden to ride bikes along the shoreline.

Cascata del Varone

The waterfall is fed by underground springs from Lake Tenno which feed the Magnone stream which cascades into the gorge with a drop of almost 100 metres. This rare natural spectacle can be admired in all its beauty thanks to walkways which afford views from below and above. / Just 50 metres after the ticket office, you reach the access to the caves below. Here you can see the erosion of the limestone rock by water over 20,000 years, and heading up the gorge you reach the final part of the waterfall. Turn back the way you came and you can cross the park and the botanic garden, admire a wide range of vegetation. / This pleasant stroll leads to the upper cave, the main viewing point for the waterfall. You can enter through a 15 metres manmade tunnel, which leads into the mountain. It is a breathtaking scene, a ravine, a fantastic gorge created by the water, almost 100 metres deep. The noise of the water and the air currents surround you and it is an utterly unique experience.

Castello di Tenno

The massive form, lightened by the battlements, accentuates the austere grandeur of the underlying fortified small village. The castle represents a suggesting ornamental and historic model integrated in Trentino’s unique landscape. / A collapse in 1920 destroyed the quadrangular donjon, but the castle was already sacked in the eighteenth century by the Vendôme troops. The walls, that severely surround it, seem to protect it; they are full of history and keep inscriptions and coats of arms belonging to Princes and Bishops. / Not far from here you can find the small Lake Tenno.

Museo degli Attrezzi Agricoli - Tenno

The visitor entering the small, but precious museum is immediately reminded of the hard and exhausting work that our grandparents did from dawn to dusk; you only have to remind the collection and preservation of leaves to make their beds in the stable, where they got together in the long winter evenings telling adventures and fairy tales. / You can observe the 'Gerle', tools that testify the fatiguing trudges on the mountain slopes; like the ear of wheat testifies the furrows of the plough and the golden wheat the millstone; the essential tools to transform milk: 'cercéne', 'stampi per el boter'(moulds), 'smarzaròle', the 'zangola' (churn) where the cream was transformed in butter; and then there was the winery where the wine jug made the hard work good; the tools for cutting and carving the wood; the artisan's workshop and the cooper's tools.A look at the country people's life, who underwent the consequences of natural and historic events. /

Canale di Tenno medieval village

The village, entrenched on a mountain slope halfway Lake Garda and the Brenta Dolomites, has been included in the list of the Most Beautiful villages in Italy and this is not surprising: narrow paved alleys, arcades, small internal squares, houses set one against the other still maintain the original 13-century structure . / The village was abandoned after the war, but in the sixties it came back alive thanks to lively cultural activities. The Casa degli Artisti (Home of the Artists), dedicated to the painter Giacomo Vittone, has its seat here and is a meeting place for artists from whole Europe. / Another highlight is the beauty of its surrounding landscape: from its 570 metres you can admire the splendid Lake Garda, and behind it the imposing mountains, or you can reach Lake Tenno, one of the most cleanest stretch of water in Trentino.

Lake Tenno - A turquoise diamond

Location / The area is located north of Lake Garda, precisely 14 km from Riva del Garda, 570 meters above sea level; near beautiful Lake Tenno we also find Canale di Tenno, one of Italy’s most beautiful medieval villages. / What to do / First of all, we recommend a visit to the medieval village of Canale di Tenno. Here, you can visit Casa degli Artisti, dedicated to painter Giacomo Vittone, an adoptive son of Canale, and participate in Rustico Medioevo, a festival of various arts which, in the first two weeks in August, brings to life moments of medieval life in the village. In winter the village’s narrow streets and alleys host the traditional Christmas market. / After cultural visits, it's time to relax: after all, it is precisely what those who come to Lake Tenno look for. A hike to the lake is an opportunity to immerse yourself in its waters, giving yourself moments of deep contact with nature. / But this pastel-color lake surrounded by pastures and forests hides other secrets. Indeed, on the lake, we find a small island that houses a particular biotope and, for short periods; when the lake’s water recedes, we also find a second islet called Island of 1986, to memorialize the year in which it was spotted for the first time. Hence, the lake features its own “Neverland”. Sometimes you see it, others you don’t. / Finally, the only emissary of the lake generates the Cascata del Varone waterfall, and the Grotta Cascata Varone park is one of the most striking attractions of this area: here, you can follow a trail through bridges, stairs, paths and tunnels dug into the mountain. / How to get there / If you arrive by car, on the A22 Toll Motorway, exit at Rovereto Sud and follow the signage to Lake Garda. Once in Riva del Garda, follow directions to Tenno. / By train, get off at Rovereto and continue by bus to Riva del Garda, then change bus to Tenno.
