Aril River - The Shortest in the World

While there are theme parks and water slides to draw attention, one of the more unusual attractions in the Lake Garda district is the Aril River. Bubbling from a spring in the village of Cassone, part of the town of Malcesine, the headwater forms a little lake before starting its brief course to the lake. The petite tributary spans just 175 meters (575 feet) before spilling into Lake Garda, but is crossed by three bridges and tumbles over a small waterfall along its short path.

The Aril River is favored by lake trout who swim up to the spring's pond to deposit their eggs. While in Lake Garda region, a trip to see this natural wonder is a must!
