Straddling Valle del Chiese and Lake Garda
One of the cleanest stretches of water in Trentino, Lake Ledro joins Valle del Chiese valley with Lake Garda. Thanks to its high temperatures of up to 24 degrees Celsius in summer, it is the ideal place to go swimming and enjoy fishing, sailing and other water sports, such as canoeing and windsurfing.
The 10-kilometre perimeter of the lake is one of the most popular routes in the area among runners and cyclists. Apart from the section from Molina to Pur, which takes you along the municipal road, the route traces the edge of the lake along a dirt road. With just a gentle gradient, you can easily walk the entire route in a couple of hours. You can also travel across the lake by booking a pedal boat, canoe or boat on site at one of the rental points.
There are four beaches open to the public: Pieve di Ledro, which has a playground and miniature golf course, Molina di Ledro, which is the largest and has tennis courts and a beach volleyball court, Mezzolago, with its floating jetty and picnic tables, and Pur, with its green area and an area dedicated to four-legged friends.
As well as its natural beauty, the area is famous for the discovery of an extensive area of Bronze Age pile dwellings on the eastern shore of the lake at the River Ponale outlet.
