Lake Garda panorama path from Busatte to Tempesta

This easy panoramic hiking trail Busatte Tempesta follows the east shores of the upper Lake Garda towards south.

We start our hiking tour, which offers great panoramic views on Lake Garda, in the small locality of Busatte above the village of Torbole. The “Sentiero panoramico“ starts at the adventure park of Busatte and runs at the foot of Mount Baldo about 120 metres above the water surface of the lake (approx. 200 metres a.s.l.). Several information panels describe the flora and fauna of the region as well as the views on the opposite lake shore. The panorama of the upper Lake Garda is just great: we see the villages of Riva and Torbole, the surrounding mountain ranges and of course many surfers and sailing boats.

The trail leads across an impressive moraine landscape and includes two sections with stairs and railings bolted onto the rocks. At the fork after the first stairs section we turn left to reach a forest road above the trail, which we follow to the locality of Tempesta. Arrived in Tempesta, we take the real panoramic trail back to Busatte. Alternatively, there is also the possibility to take the bus from Tempesta back to Torbole.

Please note: we recommend to do this hiking tour in spring or autumn and not on hot summer days.
