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.
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.
