Hotel Iseolago is the ultimate retreat for active guests. It’s surrounded by beautiful gardens for relaxing in and it's only one kilometre to Iseo town.

Great for activities

The Iseolago is great for activities, with three pools to choose from, including a little one for children. It even has a private beach and water sports, as well as a bar and restaurant. The list of things to do is endless!

Nearby nature reserves and wonderful walks

When it comes to exploring the area, the stunning Torbiere Nature Reserve is just 200 metres away and has over three square kilometres of natural clay ponds, wild flower fields and vast wildlife to discover. We love spotting the different types of insects and birds. There are also some fantastic walks from here, including the local Via Valeriana - one of the oldest and most picturesque walks in the region.

Visit characterful Iseo town

The town of Iseo is around a 15-minute walk away and is full of character - browse the boutique shops or stop in a local restaurant. You can reach the lake by a private pathway that starts straight from the hotel grounds. The hotel shuttle runs regularly to the centre of Iseo if you don't fancy the walk back (payable locally).

Lake Iseo

With Lake Garda to the east and Lake Como to the west, Lake Iseo is a case of out of sight, out of mind for many visitors to the Italian Lakes. Italians, meanwhile, have been spending their summer holidays here for decades, drawn in by the laid-back fishing towns strung around the waterfront – and the walking, cycling and ferry routes that link them. Iseo town, on the south bank, comes alive in the summer. From here, ferries cross between fishing villages and sanctuary-topped islands. Up in the hills, wine-makers are busy creating Lake Iseo’s beloved Franciacorta fizz, as they have done for generations.

Introducing Iseo: food, wine, history and nature

The lake’s namesake town, Iseo, makes a great base for a walking and foodie holiday. Arcaded cafés and shops surround the main square, Piazza Garibaldi, where an historic market filled with everything from creamy farmhouse cheeses to silver jewellery, pops up every Friday. From the piazza, medieval streets curve past trattorias, with their red-checked tablecloths and seafood menus, to the palm-lined promenade – the starting point for a leisurely lakeside 'passeggiata'.

Walking trails: pull up a (really, really) Big Bench

Walks in Lake Iseo range from sedate strolls along the promenade to mountain climbs – but they all encourage wanderers to pause and take in the views. The Big Benches art project has placed BFG-sized seats at strategic viewpoints to rest weary legs upon… if you can clamber onto them.

For a different type of scramble, ascend the rocky path to San Defendente, a church with an uninterrupted view of Corna Trentapassi peak. Easy routes through the Piramidi di Zone Nature Reserve showcase more in the way of geological wonders, with well-marked paths snaking past stalagmite-like rock formations. Or, you can head to the southern edge of Iseo, where wooden walkways criss-cross the swaying reed-beds of the Torbiere del Sebino Nature Reserve.

Summer in Franciacorta: Italy’s champagne region

Over 100 family-run vineyards stripe the hills of Lake Iseo, all on a mission to produce the finest glass of Franciacorta sparkling wine. This wine is as close to champagne as an Italian sparkling gets – but (we’ll go there) it’s even tastier. A bit like Lake Iseo, Franciacorta is popular in Italy but isn’t sipped as much abroad. Tours of labyrinth cellars and lake-view vineyards reveal each winery’s secrets, whether that’s their passion for organic vines or the story behind Italy’s first sparkling rosé. We musn’t forget that, of course, all tours end in a wine tasting! We'd recommend booking one of these tours in advance with the vineyard as they book up quickly.

Sightseeing fun: ferry routes to Sarnico, Monte Isola & more

Passenger ferries putter between towns like Iseo, Sarnico, Castro and Pisogne, taking just over two hours to cross the whole lake from north to south. If you have time for only one trip, go for the crossing to car-free Monte Isola island. Fishing traditions are still going strong here. Silvery fish dry on lines along the shore and net-making is a living tradition – including making nets for football goals used in the FIFA World Cup. For the best views in the summer, follow the stone mule tracks up to Madonna della Ceriola – a frescoed church perched on the highest point of the island.
