Lake Caldonazzo is located in the Valsugana valley, not far from the popular Lake Garda. It features a surface of 5.38 km² and is the largest lake in the Trentino, as the surface of Lake Garda does not entirely belong to the Trentino territory. Up to the 14th century, Lake Caldonazzo extended to the city of Pergine.
The maximal depth of the lake is 47 m. Even if Lake Caldonazzo is an alpine lake, it is very popular for bathing, as its average temperature in summer months - June 20°, July 23°, August 24° C - is perfect for a refreshing bath.
Lake Caldonazzo is a real outdoor gym and perfectly suited for windsurfing, sailing, diving, swimming and rowing. Due to the large variety of fish species, Lake Caldonazzo is also very popular with fishermen. Trout, perch, tench and pike are only some of the species that have their habitat in the lake. Furthermore the lake is venue for different national and international sports events! At the lakeshore, there are several popular touristic localities, as for instance the homonymous village of Caldonazzo, Calderanica al Lago, San Cristoforo Ischia or Santa Caterina.
