      At its longest point, Lake Molveno is almost four and a half kilometers long and up to one and a half kilometers wide. At the deepest point, the beautiful blue mountain lake is 124 meters deep. In contrast, the crystal-clear mountain lake Lago di Nembia south of this is almost tiny. This discovery tour with 16 kilometers and about 200 meters of altitude leads you around the entire Molveno lake to the aforementioned small neighboring lake, which has been declared a nature reserve in cooperation with the environmental foundation WWF and the energy supplier ENEL. There you will find interesting facts about the flora and fauna in and around the lake on numerous information boards. Perhaps you will even find out what the big artificial waterfall on the way is all about and what importance the two bodies of water have for the energy supply. Don't forget your swimming trunks and pack a nice picnic.

      It starts in Molveno. After the campsite, a nice wide trail meanders along the shore to the old Roman bridge, the Ponte Romano. During the holidays there can be a lot going on here, but typically for Italy there is always a great atmosphere between pedestrians and cyclists. It is not uncommon for you to be cheered on. This mainly happens on the short but steep ascent towards Fortini di Napoleone. After 50 meters of altitude you have already made it. Fortunately, the path is concreted. This gives the tires or shoes a better grip. Many mountain bikers without electrical assistance even dismount to push. As soon as you have reached the hill, a great descent awaits you on a wide gravel path along the lake shore. The mountain forest smells wonderful. In some places it opens and you have an unobstructed view of the lake.

      At the end of the lake, the descent is a little faster and you roll on an asphalt side road to the small Nembia lake, which is located directly at the foot of a steep rock face of the mighty mountain range of the Brenta Dolomites. This is the perfect picnic and bathing place. You can have a great rest on the beautiful meadow. There are benches and tables, a playground and wooden walkways from which you can jump into the ice-cold water.

      The way back is on the east side of Lake Molveno. There the trails are a bit narrower and you have a stunning view over the lake to the rugged rocks of the Brenta and the town of Molveno. In a fun up and down, the circular path first leads directly on the lake, later above the road and finally back directly on the shore to the starting point in Molveno.

      The route can be traveled in both directions and is also suitable for e-bikes. At Lago di Nembia there is a restaurant a little away from the lake and also a fountain to fill up the water reserves.

      Although this route is short, it has a lot to offer over just under six kilometers. The most spectacular are the great viewpoints, where you have a great view of the Adige Valley as far as Trento. At Doss Castel you will discover ancient ruins that are around 2,500 years old and after which the tour was named. The path itself is really cool. A great forest path connects the viewpoints and the archaeological excavations.

      It starts in Fai della Paganella directly at the large free parking lot in the center near the church. From there it is first relaxed through the place on asphalt to the forest. A steep gravel path leads to a first lookout point. You follow this to the excavations at Doss Castel, which are well worth seeing. Here you have another impressive view of the Adige Valley. At the next intersection, keep right on the Sentiero degli Ori. The beautiful trail leads to the Seraia district. The path is sometimes very steep. The last two kilometers are finally back to the starting point on narrow farm roads.

      This short and promising panoramic tour takes you on a gravel road to the Larici refuge at 1,844 meters. The gondola will take you to the Doss Pelà mountain station. From there you drive on a high path through the forests on Paganella. At the Malga Zambana you can already make a first stop and enjoy the wonderful panoramic view of the Brenta Dolomites.

      About 500 meters before the destination, the Rifugio Dosso Larici, the path begins to climb significantly and you overcome about 50 meters in altitude. From the beautifully located refuge you have a great view in almost all directions. You can have a great break here with delicious typical regional dishes and then roll back the same way.

      The tour around Cavedago is short but sporty. If you discover forest roads in this region that are concreted or asphalted, then that usually means a solid mountain rating. Two of these short, heavy climbs await you on this route. That means gritting your teeth or riding an e-bike.

      The tour starts in Cavedago at the church in the direction of Spormaggiore. At the Bottega del Formaggio, you can pack delicious cheese for a snack or a picnic on the way. A small path above Cavedago offers a beautiful view of the place before you crank up the steep, concrete forest path with your chin on the handlebars through the forest towards Andalo. After an open meadow, keep to the right until you come to a crossroads. At this turn right again and immediately afterwards at the fork keep left in the direction of Lavezol, where you will reach the main road. Now everything is easy to find again. Follow the road about 50 meters to the left. Across the meadow you can already see the recently opened Pizzeria Al Picchio Rosso on the way to Priori. A short, moderate climb leads past the Priori parking lot to the Tana dell'Ermellino hut, a second option for a break.

      Now it's all downhill at the end of the tour. A steep descent leads to the church of San Tommaso above Cavedago. Here you have a great view of Spormaggiore and the Val di Non, which is famous for its huge orchards. You can also see the starting point of your round tour at the large church of Cavedago.

      Andalo is a popular summer and winter sports destination. Here you will meet hikers, mountaineers, paragliders, hang-gliders and, above all, mountain bikers. Since everyone starts small, the Priori round tour is a good start and a great opportunity to get to know the numerous offers in and around Andalo.

      From the lively town center, the path first leads you past the valley station of the cable car, where you crank up about 50 meters in altitude parallel to the Willy Wonka single trail to the Rindole car park. There are usually numerous campers here who work on their bikes in front of their vans and buses or grill and chill after the bike tour. On narrow farm roads you get over a green plateau above the village to the Maso Toscana district. You have a wonderful view of the rugged, gray rock walls of the Brenta Dolomites. At the end of the level you cross the main road and via a second, short and moderate climb you reach the remote district of Priori, where there is a nice rest area and the Tana dell'Ermellino hut. Now you follow the gently undulating forest path back to Andalo, where you will pass the sports and leisure center. In addition to numerous cool attractions, the absolute highlight is of course the pump track, which you should definitely try. You can find it at "The Cave" Trail Center, right next to the climbing wall and the equestrian center.

      Spormaggiore and its districts are typical rural villages in the Val di Non. The wide valley on the eastern foothills of the Brenta Dolomites is famous for its huge orchards. Most of all apples come from here. The short round trip to the secluded and original village of Maurina provides a wonderful glimpse into the traditional way of life in the region away from tourist attractions.

      Start is at the village square of Spormaggiore, which is dominated by the large church. If you look closely, you will see that this actually consists of two individual churches that were built in different epochs. To get to Maurina, you leave the square through a narrow alley and get to the outskirts. Here the view opens onto the apple orchards, which, like armies of apple trees, occupy the entire Val di Non in a row. Through a valley, it goes to the district of Maurina. Time seems to be standing still here. The path runs through old arches and vaults through the village and finally through the apple orchards back to Spormaggiore. Shortly before you reach your destination, you might notice the village fountain opposite the Conad supermarket. On particularly hot summer days you can often see children splashing around the huge fountain or mountain bikers who stop on their tour and dip their heads in the wonderfully cool water.

      The round tour through the forests of the Paganella on the north side near Fai della Paganella is a challenge for your strength, endurance and coordination. To be honest, this only applies to the first two and a half kilometers. Because these offer you an ascent of no less than 370 meters in altitude. If you already feel the hundred meters of altitude on the concrete forest path to the first flatter section as hard, then roll back and invest in a lift ticket for the cable car to the Meriz mountain station. The second part becomes even steeper.

      From the Meriz hut it becomes much more relaxed. Through beautiful mixed forests, which provide cooling shade, especially in the hot summer months, the route climbs slightly on forest paths to the Rifugio Dosson. With a wonderful view of the Brenta and Andalo, you really deserve a break here. The descent back to Santel runs through the forest on a forest path with short, steep sections and even a single trail.

      This relaxed family tour is the perfect introduction to a mountain bike holiday week on Lake Molveno. You discover the most beautiful beach of Molveno, cycle close to the shore of the great mountain lake to an old Roman bridge and take the Ciclamino path very close to the mighty rocks of the Brenta Dolomites to the Baita Ciclamino hut.

      It is best to start the tour near the lake, so that at the end of the tour you can jump into the cool waters again to cool off. You follow the riverside path along the beach promenade past the campsite until it becomes much quieter behind it and you immerse yourself in nature. The beach can get very lively during the holiday season or on particularly sunny days. Then it is advisable to use the Via Lungolago. At the Ponte Romano, the old Roman bridge, you leave the Ufertrail and first drive directly parallel on a forest path back towards the campsite. From there you finally follow an old mill path with the associated mill stream uphill to the foot of the mighty rock faces of the Brenta. At the Baita Ciclamino you can treat yourself to a break in the shade of the trees and right next to the cool, rushing stream.

      The way back is on the opposite side of the stream directly into the center of Molveno. Between the houses you have a great view of the deep blue mountain lake, in which the mighty mountains are reflected. Finally, you roll back along the lakeshore, where you should of course still be able to jump into the cool water.

      "Sentiero Acqua e Faggi" - the path of water and beeches - awaits you on this five-kilometer circuit. And it more than lives up to its name: You hike through a beautiful beech forest, past small streams and waterfalls. Forest bathing at its best awaits you!The tour starts right in Fai della Paganella. The Via Padronec leads you out of the village and into the green, dense forest. The water is not long in coming. Soon you will be accompanied by a peaceful babbling brook, here and there a smaller waterfall bubbles.But such a round in the Forest Bathing Park Fai della Paganella would of course not be the same if it didn't offer you the corresponding views: As you slowly get closer to your starting point, you again have a fantastic view of the Adige Valley. Enchanted by this, the last few meters back to the town center can be mastered even better.

      Time for a little history: In addition to the soothing forest bath, you can experience one of the most important archaeological excavation sites in the Alpine region on the "Sentiero dei Reti". From your starting point on Via Belvedere in the heart of Fai della Paganella, you first make your way towards the forest.And you will soon immerse yourself in the same. You can hike here! Surrounded by mighty giant trees, you march there without any significant climbs. You always have a magnificent view of the Adige Valley. Until you finally find yourself in the middle of the Rhaetian settlement. The “Doss Castel” excavations go back to the Middle Bronze Age. It is a once fortified village that suddenly transports you back to another time.Once you've sniffed enough history, flat paths take you first through beautiful nature, then through the Valiard district back to your starting point.
