Perfect for sailing and paragliding enthusiasts
Lake Molveno is the largest natural alpine lake, over 800 metres above sea level. It is no coincidence that it was described by Antonio Fogazzaro as a “precious pearl in the most precious casket”. It is named after the village of the same name that lies on its banks, between the Brenta Group and the slopes of Paganella. It is the ideal destination for fishing, diving and sailing enthusiasts, thanks to the “Ora del Garda” wind that blows almost all day from March to October. The lake is also suitable for swimming, with numerous beaches and bays.
The weather conditions are also particularly favourable for flying. There are three take-off points for paragliders: above the village of Molveno (1,000 m), accessible from the village either on foot or by car; at the Deft viewpoint (1,090 m), about 15 minutes from the take-off point above Molveno; and at Montanara (1,400 m), which can be reached by the lifts from the village centre.
For children, we recommend the Molveno Acquapark, with its play pools, slides and whirlpools. In July and August, swimming lessons are available for adults and children in the Olympic-size pool. Just a few kilometres away is the Paganella group, where you can find a rock-climbing wall for mountaineers in Trentino and numerous hiking routes. Don’t miss the Spormaggiore Wildlife Park, to discover the secrets of the local fauna.
