Together with the lake, one of the characteristic elements of the Garda Trentino landscape is the rock of Arco, dominating the plain of the River Sarca at the point where it widens. Three paths lead to the castle, which was the residence of the Arco Counts in the Middle Ages; they all leave the village and wind through the olive groves in the hills to reach the castle in a few minutes. Beyond the last town-wall is the Prato della Lizza, a green balcony overlooking the Garda Trentino territory at the foot of the three enormous sides of the Torre Grande, the Prigione del Sasso and Sala degli Affreschi, beautifully frescoed with scenes of games of draughts and battles. At the top, the last refuge in the event of siege, stands the Torre Renghera, whose bell, known as the "renga", called the farmfolk to prayer.
What a lovely walk to ARCO castle. Although you need decent footwear. It is a bit of a hike. I would advise you take a bottle of water. It gets very hot while heading to the castle. There was refreshments at the top when we went. Views are impressive.

The small Chapel to Saint Barbara (m 625 – h 1,45 from Riva del Garda), was built in 1935 by the miners who worked on the conduits of the Ponale power plant. It is placed in a horrid and daring, yet panoramic position, on the slope of Mount Rocchetta near the start of the penstocks feeding the hydroelectrical plant. The Chapel is visible from afar thanks to nighttime lighting.
When we first arrived in Riva del Garda we were astounded when we spotted Santa Barbara Chapel perched high on the sheer mountainside overlooking the township. We soon discovered that there was a hiking track leading to the Bastion and then further onwards all the way to the Chapel. We are not particularly experienced or hikers but the challenge excited us and so we set out about 9am to see if we could do it. We wore our hiking shoes which were a must! The road leading to the Bastion is wide and smooth and although steep, quite doable. After the Bastion the track is much narrower, rocky, and steep. The climb is fairly relentless but we took lots of stops and lots of water to rehydrate with. The photo opportunities along the way are out of this world. We never felt unsafe on the track and made it to the top in a total of 1.5 hours (from the township). From the top the view is spectacular!! It took us only 45 mins to descend to the Bastion on the way down for the simple reason that gravity was working for us and not against us. We stopped and had refreshing drinks and a well deserved bruschetta for our lunch before the 15 minute downhill walk to our hotel. We gladly donned our swimmers for a well deserved swim in the lake!

Really beautiful place in the middle of the Italian Mountains. It is just past the ,,medieval" village and it is a perfect place for lunch or relaxation.

Canale di Tenno is an obligatory stop for those who desire to immerse themselves in the magic of a place of the past, where you breathe history, art and culture.The village, entrenched on a mountain slope halfway between Lake Garda and the Alps, has recently been included in the list of the most beautiful villages in Italy: note the narrow paved alleys, arcades, small internal squares, the houses set one against the other like in the ancient villages of the 13 century.The village was abandoned after the war, but lived again in the sixties thanks to a lively artistic and cultural scene. The Casa degli Artisti (Home of the Artists), dedicated to the painter Giacomo Vittone, is found here and is a residence and meeting place for artists from all of Europe.From the 428 metres of Canale you can admire the splendid Lake Garda, and the imposing Mountains behind, or you can reach Lake Tenno, one of the cleanest stretch of water in Trentino, characterized by its intense turquoise colour and small islet.
It's one of the rare times when you're able to see a medieval town that mostly still looks like it might have then.
Even though it's popular with tourists it seem to still remain fairly quiet (not many shops / restaurants) which makes it perfect for me.
It's a good starting point to walk to Lago to Tonno

One follows via Gargnano (Gardesana Occidentale National Road SS 45bis) from the centre of Riva heading towards Limone. On the right before the tunnel, take the old road which once linked Riva del Garda with the Ledro Valley. From there one can enjoy breathtaking panoramas for once in a lifetime photo opportunities.
We saw this suggestion on Trip Advisor so we visited The Lab bike shop and rented e-bikes and they provided a map. It was an incredible day! We rode to Lago de Ledro and Pregasina and back to Riva del Garda. We loved it and we would recommend anyone who loves to bike do this ride. ❤️❤️

Nice track to do with family (baby also), only one point is not so clear in the description. When we arrive in Tempesta is a little bit diffuclt to came back in Busatte to take the car. The best is Busatte/Tempesta/Busatte by foot or Busatte/Temepesta by foot and after that....call a Taxi 10min e 10eur and the experience is perfect!

The Arboretum of Arco is a strip of the archducal park created in 1872 by Archduke Alberto of Habsburg, Emperor Francesco Giuseppe’s cousin, near the archducal villa, when Arco was the winter residence of the Imperial Austrian Court. The Arboreto, whose vegetation, originating from various continents has been thriving due to the mild climate of Arco, still holds some species planted by the Archduke, like the majestic holm-oaks and the great conifers, the Lawson cypress and the huge sequoia.
small green corner close to the ME city walls, on the road to the castle ruins. very nice for a couple of hours of green rest, interesting for those who are looking for various types of trees from all over the world

Great morning out. Starts with beautiful lake views on old track, then nice valley, then small lake with villages around the edge. Small museum of stilt houses/natural history. Some steep bits, lanes, tracks, nothing technical unless you go to the adjacent MTB trails (these are heaps of fun, very steep, somewhat technical). 10 KMs up to lake from Riva, 1.2 km of climbing.

Excellent Gardens and waterfall. The Gardens are very well maintained and steps to the waterfall are shallow which makes access easy for most people; there's no obvious access for pushchairs or wheelchairs. The cave and waterfall are spectacular and the spray doesn't make you too wet. Entry is €5.50 and well worth it.
