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.

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.

Turn-by-turn directions

After having parked the car go back to the tarmac road, near the information centre of the Adamello – Brenta Park.

Walk towards the road barrier. Just before a little bridge turn left, where there’s a sign announcing the starting point of the “Giro del Lago “ (Lake Tour) trail.

Leave the road and continue alongside the small Tresenica stream, keeping on the left-hand side.

When you reach the lake (5'), turn right, cross over the bridge and enjoy the first spectacular view of this lake and the enchanting hollow in which it is set.

Walk uphill for a short stretch back onto the road near the Miralago Hotel.

Turn left once again and continue along the lane through the forest to the Park Visitors Centre. We recommend you visit the centre (free entrance). The lane then moves away from the lake and climbs in the forest, with many trails leading down to the lakeside.

From the Visitors Centre (just below which there’s a nice little beach with an inviting field, picnic tables and seating) the trail continues first downhill and then on flat ground.

The lane winds its way along the shore of the lake, just a few metres from the water. You’ll see many private boats moored along this stretch of the shore, while on the right-hand side you can admire some picturesque Alpine mountain houses.

At the end of the lane, near an information board, continue along the trail on flat ground on the opposite side of the lake from the arrival point, with some beautiful beaches that gently descend into the crystal-clear water of the lake.

Continue here until you reach a large gravel deposit in the lake, produced by one of the mountain streams that flow into it. Here the trail ends and you must trace your steps back to the car park.

From here it’s a short detour to the Rislà waterfall, about 10’ away, on your way back to the departure point, or else you can continue along the eastern shore of the lake on a trail that is more difficult, but also well-equipped with cables and a wood parapet (this trail is classified by the Adamello-Brenta Park authorities as “dangerous”). It’s up to you whether to try it or not. The trail climbs up and over several ledges facing the lake and is the shortest way back to the departure point.

Getting there

Reach the village of Tuenno in Val di Non, on the right-hand bank of the valley. On the south-west side of the village there are directions for Lake Tovel. Here begins the road that climbs up the Val Tovel, for about 11 km . Access to the valley is unrestricted in low season. From the end of June until the end of August, traffic control falls under the responsibility of the Adamello – Brenta Park Authority, which regulates and restricts vehicle access into the valley, from the Capriolo hamlet (about half way up the valley) onwards, as follows: 1) access to the lake car park is unrestricted before 9 am and after 6 pm. 2) Between 9.00 and 10.30 am visitors are charged to park by the lake. 3) Between 10.30 and and 6.00 pm vehicle access to the lake is prohibited, all vehicles must park at the Capriolo car park, from where visitors can take a shuttle bus. Walking to the lake from Capriolo is not recommended because it is a 5 km hike.
Arrival by train, car, foot or bike
