The tour of Lake Tenno
The passion of biking!
Freedom+adrenaline+adventure+the smell of the earth+the wind in your face = pure happiness with your foot on the pedal
There are times when all you have to do is get on your bike and you’re at peace with the world. Kick start and you’re off, leave the rest behind, and all there is is you and your bike. The bike and the road slowly merge and that is where the magic starts. Garda Trentino is full of fantastic bike routes. We can recommend one in the Tenno area where you can travel in either direction through medieval villages, terraced vineyards, olive and sweet chestnut groves, till you come to the turquoise waters of Lake Tenno for a freezing dip.
Drive: panoramic route, fabulous winding roads with short straight stretches where you can really put your foot down; a dizzying succession of hairpin bends drawn with a compass for tight bends to lean into. One bend after another and the panorama is a crescendo of spectacular views with no end of photo opportunities.
