Sebino peat bogs nature reserve

Overview

This Nature Reserve is a protected wetland, of great naturalistic interest and both national and international importance. The Sebino peat bogs border the southern end of Lake Iseo, and are separated from it through a thin moraine cordon. In this area, which covers about 360 hectares, marshy and swampy terrain, reed beds and bodies of water alternate. Whereas in the past, in the second half of the 19th century, this land was used for the extraction of peat for the Brescia ironworks, today it represents a valuable habitat for the survival and reproduction of certain types of flora and fauna. The Reserve can be visited every day of the year, from dawn to dusk, accessing only on foot three main entrances: Comune d'Iseo, Corte Franca and Provaglio d'Iseo. Within the Reserve, there are three looping routes: north – central; south – central; north – south.

In this beautiful protected area, in Lake Iseo, cycling is prohibited. However, those who prefer to visit the landscapes while cycling can admire the Nature Reserve from above, from a small elevated road, starting from Via Colombera in the municipality of Iseo and covering the ten kilometres that form a ring around the peat bogs: the views are breathtaking.
