We are working for you!

We are currently working on maintenance and signposting on this trail. While work is under way, we might find better variants: for this reason there might be slight difference between the trail description and the actual itinerary. We will fix this as soon as we finish the work. We are currently revising description and details of the tour as well. Thanks for your patience!

Turn-by-turn directions

The point of departure for this route is Tenno castle. At the beginning, stay on the main road, heading towards Lake Tenno. There are three bends and, at the fourth, turn right into Revedù. The road passes through vineyards and the  surrounding scenery is absolutely spectacular. When you come to Vandrino, stay on the main road and make sure not to take any of the turn-offs. Keep on going as far as Novino where you take a right turn and head downhill on a tarmac road to Volta di No, then turn right again. Now you cycle uphill on a lovely dirt track through vineyards.
