The little brother of Lake Caldonazzo resembles a Norwegian fjord.
Lake Levico is located 440 m a.s.l., is 2,840 m long, 950 m wide and has a maximum depth of 38 m. The distinctive form of Lake Levico, one of the cleanest Italian lakes, resembles a Norwegian fjord. Only a forested hill called Colle di Tenna, separates Lake Levico from its big brother, Lake Caldonazzo. As the name reveals, it is situated close to the thermal centre Levico Terme. The picturesque Lake Levico, surrounded by dense forests, reflects the colours of the trees on its surface. That is also one of the reasons why this lake has a beautiful emerald green colour. However, as the trees change their colour in autumn, also the aspect of the lake changes and mirrors a beautiful autumnal landscape.
Also those who seek relaxation and those who like water sports will love Lake Levico. Along its northern bank, there is the pleasant fishermen's path (strada dei pescatori), which leads you along the lakeshore. Protected by shady trees, it is also perfectly suited for walks on hot summer days.
The reeds of the lake, called Canneto di Levico, are home of different water birds, for example migratory birds like common gulls, nuns and robins, which stop or winter in the biotope. Sports enthusiasts come to Lake Levico for sailing, surfing and swimming. Moreover at the lakeshore there are two lidos with beaches, where adults and children can enjoy swimming. The absolute highlight is situated at the opposite side of the lake... on a liana you can swing over the lake and jump into the water – like Tarzan!
Also in 2022, Lake Levico has been awarded the prestigious Bandiera Blu eco-label, which is given for excellent water quality, environmental protection and sustainable services.
