Beautiful scenery, high altitude. Three lakes joined together with MTB bicycle. Good legs and good preparation to overcome a significant difference in altitude.
This is a wonderful tour that embraces the three main lakes of Alto Garda: Lake Garda, Lake Ledro and Lake Tenno. The departure is planned at the village of Torbole from where you can reach through a convenient cycle track Riva del Garda along the entire coast of the lake, then going on the former road linking with the Val di Ledro, the “Ponale“, completely submerged on the lake totally excavated alongside the mountain.
You will reach the main inhabited area of the valley, Molina di Ledro, slowly entering between rocks, peaks and crowned mountains. Left behind Molina di Ledro, you reach and walk along the wonderful lake of the same name with pause and rest. A beautiful bicycle path will take you to the beginning of the challenging climb towards Locca di Concei, set in a very impressive side valley with a distinctive Alpine character.
You reach Lenzumo at 800m and follow the famous Rifugio Pernici our place to rest at 1600m. The altitude difference is remarkable. From this summit you take a rather demanding descent to reach Campi and follow the beautiful Lake Tenno with its turquoise waters.
A beautiful trail around the lake and then we will go down to Canale on a sloping dirt track. From Lake Tenno we will then take a dirt road down to Canale and will descend again to the bottom of the valley until the village of Varignano from where we will go back to the starting place.
Long and challenging climb (asphalt and dirt road) with ramps up to 25%. Downhill skiing down to Campi. Excellent fitness is necessary. Hard path. Good technical skill downhill.
