“Lafraun” is an ancient German-Cimbrian word that means Lavarone. Following this panoramic tour you will travel through the territory of Lavarone, its wide views, warm atmospheres, naturalistic and historical suggestions.
Get on the saddle of your mtb, it will be fun! When you arrive in Bertoldi, pedal up to the hamlet Slaghenaufi. The place is beautiful, with a splendid view. Then you will have to cut through the side of Mount Tablat, proceed down to Gionghi and start climbing again, up to Passo Cost. From here down to the fortress and museum Forte Belvedere. Take the time to visit it: history has passed through these walls!
Return to Lavarone Chiesa crossing meadows and pastures, passing through the beautiful Lake Lavarone, the blue and green pearl of Trentino. How about an aperitif on the beach?
