An excursion among olive groves and vineyards, suitable for everybody without much elevation gain to take you on a tour of the main towns of Garda Trentino: Riva del Garda, Arco and Torbole
The fairly flat area to the north of Lake Garda is called “Busa” which means 'hole' in local dialect. The reason is self-explanatory: this part of Garda Trentino is surrounded by mountains so that it looks like a hole has been dug out of the landscape above the lake.
This is an itinerary which follows the perimeter of this area, running along cycle paths and back roads. The ideal trail for anyone interested in exploring this area of Garda Trentino by bicycle, enjoying the variety of landscape and passing through the little hamlets which are dotted around the countryside, away from the traffic of the main roads.
Along the way you will come across all manner of places of interest: attractions, monuments, restaurants and producers where you can always stop off to find out more or have a taste and learn about the history and traditions of Garda Trentino as well as the main players. Choose the theme you like best and start pedalling: you will discover that even the simplest route can be full of surprises.
Don't forget your camera. There is no end of places to take souvenir photos. And please feel free to share your memories with #GardaTrentino
