Map of walk Distance 7.5 miles Time 5 hours 10 mins
We took a bus from Riva del Garda to Lake Tenno – the blue lake at 665 meters = 2,180 ft above see level – and walked back down to Riva 70m = 230ft
Lago di Tenno was formed by a landslide in about 1100, which blocked the stream.
We walked down the mountain.
Looking down to the town of Tenno, and Riva on Lake Garda
The mediaeval village (its documents date back the the 13th century) of Canale di Tenno is said to be one of the most beautiful in Italy, with its narrow paved alleys, arcades, small squares, and houses set one against the other. It was was abandoned after the war, which is why it is unspoilt, and was revived in the 1960s as an artists centre.
Just outside Canale
The Varonne river comes from the waterfall. We followed the river to ‘home’
