Lago di Garda and Ledro

Lake Garda is definitely one of the most popular lakes of Italy. Its most northern part with mighty mountains and pristine waters belongs to the Trentino

When some 10,000 years ago majestic glaciers were moving across the valleys, the biggest inland water of Italy was formed. 4 km wide in the north and 17 km in the south, Lake Garda covers an area of 370 km², a length of 52 km and a depth of up to 350 m. Only the most northern part with the villages Nago, Torbole and Riva del Garda however belongs to the Trentino region. A lovely promenade actually connects the villages and invites to relaxing walks along the sunny northern shore of Lake Garda.

From the very first moment you will feel the Mediterranean atmosphere gently mingling with the fresh Alpine climate. Because here you are in between high mountains (some of them reach altitudes of more than 2,000 m) and nevertheless there are colourful olive and lemon trees growing all over the area. This is also the reason why this part of Lake Garda is so popular among hikers, climbers and mountain bikers alike. Moreover, it is also the perfect venue for windsurfers and sailors. Ideal wind strengths and conditions render the northern part of Lake Garda a true paradise for them!
