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