SUP TOUR: 3. Lake Tenno
Lake Tenno, thanks to its small size, is the perfect training ground for anyone who is just starting out with SUP and needs to find their feet on the board
To paddle on the natual jewel of Trentino that is Lake Tenno is a truly incredible experience. Set in unspoilt alpine surroundings, the lake is 570 m above sea level on the slopes of Mount Misone. The thick woodlands around the lake and the white stones on the bottom are what give it is teal and turquoise hue. You feel like you are paddling on a tropical atoll!
The lake covers an area of 0.22 km² and is subject to dramatic fluctuations in water level. At the end of the rainy season in autumn, the water level can be as much as 15 metres higher than in the summer season when the little island on the lake is accessible on foot. Lake Tenno cannot be reached by car and you can get there by climbing a long flight of steps.
This lake is an oasis of calm and thanks to its crystal clear waters and warm temperature is perfect for bathing. You can also go for a pleasant stroll around the lakeshore.
