Ledro Valley, Trentino, Italy

Val di Ledro is situated between the rocky towers of the Brenta Dolomites and the olive gardens on Lake Garda. The mountain landscape is characterized by the turquoise blue of the clean Lake Ledro that is surrounded by the beautiful green of thick woods and meadows. 

Lake Ledro is one of the cleanest lakes in Trentino and during the summer it reaches a temperature of 24 degrees, which allows nice swim and a lot of relax in one of the four beaches around the lake. One beach is “animal friendly”, where dogs are welcome!  

It is possible to rent a canoe or a sailing boat and cross the lake from one side to the other.  

In Valle di Ledro there are also rocky mountain peaks for mountaineers and hikers. Several well "white and red" marked mountain paths (CAI -SAT) offer the opportunity to make easy or challenging hikes, beside this there are about 200 km of signed mountain bike routes on sensational  military and forest roads. The Tremalzo Big Tour leads from Pieve di Ledro to Tremalzo and continue to Prè and Leano: 40 km and a difference of level of 1200m with breathtaking views on lakes Ledro and Garda.  

The local tourist board "Consorzio per il Turismo della Valle di Ledro" has hiking, MTB and running  map (1:30 000) with description and information about the hikes and tours and on the website you find every tours with gpx, description and map.  

Searching for adrenalina? You can try canyoning and descend the gorges and the slides of the torrents Palvico and Rio Nero or observe the valley from above thanks to the paragliding.  

In the restaurants of Ledro is it possible to taste the local cuisine, very similar to the one of Trentino but with some specialties like the typical potato’s polenta and some Czech food, like Bohemian dumplings or livanze, result of the exile during the First World War.  

The summer program is rich in events to entertain the guests of Ledro with concerts, village parties, sport events, opera, fireworks, children shows and in the family run accommodation, like hotels, B&B, camping sites and apartments you will feel like at home.
