In Val di Ledro, the lake and the mountains are the common thread of many sporting activities. This is due to the very clean waters of Lake Ledro, which are calm and safe for swimming, never too rough from the wind and, in summer, have an extremely pleasant temperature: on the hottest days the water can even reach 24 degrees! All these characteristics make the lake and the entire Ledro Valley the perfect destination for an active and varied holiday, with the possibility of choosing your favourite sport and changing programme and activities every day.
Sailing, canoeing and windsurfing are undoubtedly among the best sports to be practised on Lake Ledro. In the four equipped beaches it is possible to rent everything you need, such as optimists, catamarans and small sailing boats. Beginners can take courses or learn the basics with instructors from local sports associations. The same goes for wakeboarding, a mixture of water skiing and snowboarding: towed by a motorboat, you glide through the water with a board on your feet and perform funny acrobatics. At Lake Ledro, the wind is never too strong, making it possible to enjoy these sports to the utmost satisfaction, but also in complete safety.
Those who love peace and quiet can enjoy the lake by boat or pedal boat, which can be hired at the shore and returned to the opposite shore.Fishing enthusiasts will find a clean aquatic environment where valuable fish species thrive. It is necessary to have a regular fishing permit, which can be obtained from the Tourist Office or from shops and bars.The whole of Val di Ledro is an open-air gym that offers endless activities: excursions to high altitudes offer truly breathtaking views and take you on the trail of the First World War: not to be missed are Monte Corno, which can be reached from Tremalzo or Pieve, Cima d’Oro, which can be reached from Mezzolago, and Cima Parì, which can be reached from MalgaTrate from Rifugio Pernici. For the more experienced, a wonderful tour is that of the Val Concei peaks, from Monte Pichea to Monte Cadria. Alternatively, there is the Ledro Trek, two routes of different lengths that wind along the valley floor or along the mountainside, which can be done in all seasons.Not to be missed is the legendary Ponale Road, which connects Riva del Garda to Biacesa: now closed to traffic, it offers unique and breathtaking views of Lake Garda.
Even die-hard mountain bikers will find a good run for their money, thanks to the over 200 km of tracks to be covered on two wheels. High-altitude routes include the climb to Tremalzo and the one to bocca di Trat – Rifugio Pernici, while in the valley there is a beautiful cycle path from Lake Ledro to Lake Ampola. Climbing enthusiasts won’t be left empty-handed either: Val di Ledro is home to several climbing walls and cliffs.
Pure adrenaline for canyoning enthusiasts: the gorges of the Palvico torrent and the Rio Nero are among the most popular among canyoning enthusiasts. Finally, you can choose the thrill of paragliding and admire Val di Ledro from above, starting from Passo Trat or Passo Tremalzo.
