Fantastic (UP & DOWN) the destination of the tour is of course Malga Grassi at 1067m above sea level.
From Riva del Garda you go up along the main road with some selected unsurfaced stretches, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards until you reach the village of Pranzo, a small place overlooked by the castle of Tenno which stands opposite.
After a look inside the archways of the ancient stone houses, we continue to gain altitude as we turn towards Campi.
The landscape begins to change as the bright green of the olive trees is replaced by the more intense tones of the centuries-old chestnut trees, while the charm of Lake Garda remains visible in the background.
After the cultivated fields and the last houses of the village of Campi, we enter the woods up a steep stretch of road called the “pontera” until we reach Malga Grassi, where we stop for a cool drink in a family environment. And for those who wish, there is the opportunity to taste the typical dishes of the local cuisine.
With body and soul satisfied, we get on our bikes to face the return to Riva del Garda initially with a fun single trail in the woods and then a fast mule track will take us above the roofs of the town, passing the Torre del Bastione.
