On the shores of the Lago di Tovel, there is one of the houses of the Parco Naturale Adamello-Brenta, created in collaboration with the Museo Tridentino di Scienze Naturali. The house is dedicated to the brown bear, the symbolic animal of the park, and houses photographs, educational and illustrative texts, film and audio clips, perfumes, realistic reconstructions, naturalised animals as well as interactive activities and books.
The Lago di Tovel is part of the basin of the Noce river, one of the most important tributaries of the Adige river, and has an area of 360.000 m² with a maximum depth of 39 m. The Val di Tovel and the Parco Naturale Adamello-Brenta can be reached from the village of Tuenno (along the provincial road no. 73) by taking the provincial road no. 14 of the Val di Tovel, which runs alongside the Rio Tresenga.
During the summer, the lake can be reached by shuttle bus from Cles, Tuenno, or from the car park in Capriolo.
