Lake Ledro is not only famous for its shimmering turquoise waters but also for the UNESCO heritage site Bronze Age pile dwelling.
Lake Ledro is a great natural swimming pool 650 m above sea level where you can paddle your SUP in freedom.
To go around the lake you can start out from any of the four beaches (Molina di Ledro, Mezzolago, Pieve di Ledro and Pur): the Molina beach was chosen for its easy access.
The panorama is breathtaking and there are numerous bays and inlets in natural surroundings where you can go in on your board and find utter peace and tranquillity. It is extremely rare that the wind conditions create any difficulties for paddling but if the length of the tour becomes a problem, you can always stop off at one of the beaches.
Lake Ledro owes its origins to a morainic barrage during the fourth ice age. In 1929, when the level of the lake was lowered for hydroelectric work, a pile dwelling settlement came to light which dates back to the Bronze Age and is now a UNESCO heritage site.
It is well worth visiting the nearby Museo delle Palafitte del Lago di Ledro where, along with the village of pile dwellings, you can see what life was like 4000 years ago.
