Thanks to its many splendid lakes, the Trentino offers a wide variety of diving opportunities.
The lake-rich Trentino is a paradise for divers. Grab your wetsuit, goggles and oxygen tank - and off you go on an adventure! An exciting journey of discovery awaits you under the water surface in a unique ecosystem and with interesting inhabitants.
There are different types of diving, such as scuba diving, also called recreational diving, or technical diving, which requires special diving equipment. Scuba diving has evolved from snorkelling and underwater fishing, while technical diving requires longer training and a lot of experience. Most of the lakes in the Trentino are suitable for scuba diving, although some are more popular than others. There are three reasons for this: The beauty and particularity of the underwater world, the available infrastructures and equipment, as well as the easy accessibility of the diving areas. One of the most popular lakes is Lake Garda, which offers several entry points for divers along its shores.
The underwater world of Porto San Nicolò in Riva del Garda is particularly famous for its historical finds from World War II and for the statue of the Silent Christ. Other lakes in Trentino are also ideally suited for diving, as they are equipped with flag lines (ropes indicating the dive) or platforms for training courses, for example Lake Levico or Lake Lases. Lake Tovel with its petrified trees and Lake Caldonazzo, easily accessible on foot, are also attractions for many divers.
In the Trentino there are various diving schools, clubs and underwater associations at your disposal if you want to practice or learn this sport there.
