Up in the mountains above Lake Garda, you’ll find Lake Ledro – it’s the ideal holiday destination for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. There’s a range of trails through the woods that surround the lake and others that lead up into the mountain’s or through the valley. Our favourite trails are the ones that lead up to the mountain huts where they have food tastings and you can try the Ledro Valley’s local cheese’s.
Known for its clean, sparkling waters, it’s great for those who enjoy a wild swim! In the summer months the lake temperature can reach up to 24 degrees, so you won’t even have to worry about that initial chill. There’s are four lovely pebble beaches, with grassy sunbathing spots, so you can relax at the lakeside. You’ll also find places with sailing boats, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and pedaloes for hire too – getting out on the water is a great way to see the area.
Stay in the historic village of Pieve, on the north-western shore or Mezzolago half way down the north side of the lake. With Lake Garda just a short way away, and busses that run to and from it regularly, there’s plenty of opportunity for day trips. You can easily venture a bit further afield for the day to visit Venice or Verona, too.
