The famous red lake, in the heart of the Brenta Dolomites, is your destination on this route. Leaving from Tuenno, you follow the downhill road through the mountains, heading into Val di Tovel. After the entrance to the Adamello Brenta Park, the route turns uphill, with woodland sections and the striking lunar landscape of the “Glare”, up to the shores of the little alpine lake with its natural basin and crystal waters reflecting the Dolomite peaks. This impressive natural environment is also the habitat of the solitary brown bear.

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.
