Lago di Tenno - Tenno Lake
Lovely lake with turquoise waters a stone's throw from Lake Garda
Lake Tenno, located a few kilometers north of Riva del Garda, is characteristic for the color of its waters and for the verdant and luxuriant nature that surrounds it. The walk down to the lake is very beautiful, with a staircase of 120 steps surrounded by green vegetation.
It is an alpine swimming lake surrounded by pebble beaches and with a small island in the centre of it. With low tide you get to see a rocky island, called Isola dell'ottantasei. On this rock, when it is visible, a plaque appears with the inscription: "When you see me, you will cry" because only in cases of maximum drought does it resurface.
A suitable destination for lovers of outdoor holidays, for those who want to enjoy a beautiful landscape and the refreshment of a swim in crystal clear waters. Furthermore, around Lake Tenno there is a very nice cycle-pedestrian path. Since 2013 it is also accessible with dogs, who can find a beach reserved for them from October to April (in high season access to dogs is forbidden).
After visiting Lake Tenno, you cannot miss a visit to the village of Canale di Tenno and the Varone Caves Waterfalls, a few kilometers away.
