The Lake Tour in the Trentino is well-known among bikers. The approx. 200 km long route starts in Madonna di Campiglio, crosses the Adamello Brenta Nature Park and ascends to the Campo Carlo Magno mountain pass at 1,682 m a.s.l., which offers a fantastic view on the Brenta Mountain Group. Then the route proceeds through the woods of the Val di Meledrio valley and past Folgarida. After a few curves we reach the village of Dimaro (766 m a.s.l.) in the Val di Sole valley.
Now the road proceeds towards east through the typical landscape of the Val di Non valley which is characterised by apple trees. Arrived at Cles, we drive towards Lake Tovel at 1,178 m a.s.l. along a road with a max. gradient of 12 %. The lake itself, surrounded by the impressive peaks of the Brenta Mountain Group, is a true natural jewel and really worth visiting. From Lake Tovel we drive back to Tuenno, past the village of Denno and 1 km after Campodenno towards Lake Molveno at 865 m a.s.l. The road is narrow and full of bends. Lake Molveno is a popular excursion and holiday destination with plenty of restaurants, pizza places, camping sites and accommodations and ideal for our lunch break.
From Lake Molveno the route proceeds to Ponte Arche and then towards Lake Ponte Pia, the road leads to Tione. After we have crossed the Val Rendena valley and reached Carisolo, the route leads to the Val di Genova valley on the left. The 17 km long section proceeds through a beautiful landscape with several waterfalls. Especially the Nardis Waterfalls with their height of about 100 m are famous (after about 4 km on the right). Arrived at Carisolo, we drive to our starting point Madonna di Campiglio again.
