Lake Caldonazzo is located in the Valsugana valley, not far from the popular Lake Levico. It features a surface of 5.4 km² and is the largest lake on Trentino terrain (for comparison: Lake Garda is located on Trentino and Veneto terrain). Thanks to the mild climate, the temperatures of the water, which is on average 26.5 m deep, reach 18° to 24° C and make it one of the warmest lakes in Europe: swimming is therefore possible from May to the end of September. Along the shore there are bathing establishments and free beaches, as well as charming villages such as Caldonazzo, Calceranica and Tenna.
Lake Caldonazzo is a real outdoor gym and perfectly suited for windsurfing, sailing, diving, swimming and rowing. Water skiing is only allowed here in the Trentino. In summer, national and international top athletes take part in the sports events. Fishermen also find their places, because trout, rudd, carp, sunfish and tench live in the lake.
For dog owners and their companions there is a "Bau Beach", where your four-legged friend will feel comfortable. A leash is mandatory both in and out of the water.
Also in 2020, Lake Caldonazzo has been awarded the prestigious Bandiera Blu eco-label, which is given for excellent water quality, environmental protection and sustainable services.
