Lake Ledro Holidays

Lake Ledro nestles high in the mountains above Lake Garda and is well known to many Inghams guests who have been there on our excursions from Lake Garda. Now we are pleased to include it as a resort in its own right.

The lake is rated as one of the cleanest in Europe and is usually pleasantly warm for a summer swim from one of the four beaches. It’s ideal for walkers and nature lovers with a range of trails through the woods that surround the lake.

For a change, there’s also a regular bus service to Lake Garda. Our featured hotels are located in the village of Pieve, located on the north-western shore. The resort has a characteristic historical centre, a large lakeside beach and is an attractive strategic base from which to explore or equally to unwind amidst scenic surroundings.

The old Ponale Road to Riva is a famous, breathtakingly panoramic downhill walk, and not to be missed - our Representative will be pleased to take you - see Inghams Guided Walks.

 

POPULAR WALKS include:

Val Concei / 3 hrs / Easy

Walk through the peaceful, remarkably unspoilt beech and pine forest of the Val Concei, keeping an eye out for wild game. Stop at the lovely chalet style Rifugio Al Faggio and refuel with a typical dish of the region before returning. Suitable for all abilities.

Gorg d’Abiss waterfall / 3 hrs / Easy

The ancient roman roads via Tiarno will bring you to the lovely Gorg d’Abiss gorge and waterfall, which over the years has carved a deep canyon through the rocks. Take in the Mulino dei Bugatini watermill en route.

Panoramas of Cime Pari / 6 hrs / Slightly Challenging

For more experienced hikers. From Lenzumo take the cow track to Bocca Saval then follow the First World War trenches to Cima Pari, an ideal spot for lunch as you take in views across Ledro, Lake Garda and the Dolomites beyond. On the descent join the Path of Peace until Rifugio Pernici, for a refreshment.

Please note: Walks are available on a first come first served basis and also subject to
weather conditions. Please register with your Rep on arrival.

 

TOURIST OFFICE GUIDED WALKS
The local Tourist Office runs an excellent programme (FREE with the Trentino Guestcard) of guided walks, including two half day walks suitable for all levels including families, plus a full day walk requiring a minimum level of fitness, each week. Walks start from various
points within the valley. Participation needs to be registered with the Tourist Office in Pieve


GUIDED WANDERWALKS

Ponale Way to Riva / Approx 4 hrs / Easy

The old Ponale track from the southern end of Ledro to Riva del Garda is one of Italy’s most dramatic panoramic walks. Cut through the cliffs above Lake Garda, the views all along this most characteristic descent to Riva are superb. We return from Riva via
public bus.


Botanical Walk to Dromae / Approx 6 hrs / Moderate

From Mezzolago we follow the botanical path towards the gardens of Dromae, taking in First World War Austrian front line trenches en route. Completing the ascent to Dromae’s perfumed meadows of white narcissus and wild peonies, we absorb the stunning views over
Lake Ledro before returning.

TWO CENTRES

You can combine your stay in Lake Ledro with 3, 4 or 7 nights in Venice or Verona, or with a stay in Lake Garda, Merano or Selva.
