With or without Yoga!
HERE YOU CAN HAVE TOTAL WILDERNESS YET BE 15 MINUTES DRIVE FROM A TOWN. Ledro is considered to be one of Trentino's most beautiful valleys and is a UNESCO world heritage site. Here are some of the most popular pursuits, world class and often accessible straight from your room door!
Biking & Hiking
There are numerous well maped and marked trails for all abilities, from flat and gentle around lake Ledro to mountain summits with shuttle bus drop offs and downhill glory back to your front door. For advanced bikers there are technical mountain bike routes and parks. With the advent of the hybrid electric bike, if you wish, it couldn't be easier! Strolling from your front door takes you all the way down to Riva del Garda via the old Ponale road - one of the most beautiful historical panoramic roads in Europe. Heading up our own mountain at the back of the guest rooms takes you to St Giovani church or Cima Capi summit, all with stunning views.
Approx costs: MTB 10 - 25€ half day. EBike 25€ half day. Summit Bike Shuttle 15-20€. Local Bikebus - not expensive... prices TBC.
Paddleboarding & Swimming
Lake Ledro is smaller, with gentle breezes and more peacefulness than its bigger sister Lake Garda that it feeds with fresh mountain water. A dip in the crystal clear water of either lake is the perfect tonic on a hot sunny day and paddle boards can be hired.
Example costs: Paadleboard hire 15€ 1hour
Windsurfing Kitesurfing or Sailing
The morning Pela and afternoon Ora catabatic winds are world renown for great conditions for those with experience on Lake Garda. In between, as the wind rests, beginners take to the water. The nearest centres are in Riva del Garda and Torbole (10 - 30 minutes drive).
Example costs: Windsurf or kitsurf full gear hire half day 39-45€.
Laser boat half day 55€. Lessons from 70€ 2-3hrs (kite surf: courses only available; from 179€)
Paragliding & Cable Car
For an unforgettable experience flying tandem over Lake Garda, take the cable car to the summit at Malcesine. There are also fantastic bike trails and walks from here and an excellent restaurant with a short stroll to a view point over the whole of the lake.
Example costs: Cable car 20€. Paragliding 130-150€.
History Geology & Nature
Away from the ancient towns and castles the glacially moulded valley landscapes, home to protected flora and fauna and vibrant wildlife, offers plenty of interest for geology, art and photography enthusiasts. Bronze age dwellings lakeside at Ledro Lake and the many Austrian - Italian trenches and caves used by troops in the harsh wars of the 1900's give a strong sense of the passage of time. Until the Ponale way road to Riva (now a fantastic and accessible walk/bike track) Ledro valley was very isolated and the simple traditional farming way of life can also still be evidenced. It's an intriguing and historic area.
Lakes Towns & Culture
Take a scenic drive or picturesque lake ferry to ancient towns such as Riva del Garda, Acro, Malcesine and Limone. Seemingly untouched by time, you can wander intrigued among age-old houses, traditional portals, tiny arches, frescos, castles, medieval towers and irregular alleyways. Put your feet up at the lakeside and enjoy cafe delights to the backdrop of the mountains.
Example costs: Lake ferry Riva del Garda to Limone 10€ rtn (extra 3.50€ for bike)
Via Ferrata Climbing Canyoning Caving & Kayak
There are some really fun ways to enjoy the mountains and rivers if you have a more adventurous spirit to satisfy. Originally a method for troops to make their way around the mountain regions in wartimes, many areas have Via Ferrata hand rails and stepped areas for easier access than full climbing skills require. Outstanding for climbing at all levels, many establishments offering courses, equipment and guides in all pursuits. If you dont mind getting a bit wet and with no experience required, canyoning, caving, kayaking or bellyaking can be exciting and always a lot of fun. Ledro has one of the best canyoning trips in the area!
Example costs: Guided trips from 65€\75€. Climbing course multiday from 300€
