Lake Tenno - A turquoise diamond

A turquoise lake, born of a painter’s palette

A turquoise diamond set in green woods: Lake Tenno is a feast for the eyes and an opportunity to explore its surroundings, between medieval villages and culinary traditions.

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. 

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.
