Let your children off the leash
Isn’t it time your kids explored a real landscape, rather than a digital one?
These days, children desperately need an antidote to the claustrophobic modern world of video games, iPads and Facebook profiles. So why not bring your kids to our crystal-clear lakes, and let them off the leash? Here, they can rediscover their appetite for physical fun – whether it’s mucking about in canoes, diving off jetties, or exploring the shoreline on a mountain bike.
We don’t want to brag. But our lakes are exceptionally clean, safe and well-run. None more so than Lake Molveno, which for the fifth year running has been awarded five sails by the Italian Touring Club – an accolade which recognises not just the cleanliness of the water and beaches, but the quality of its tourist infrastructure, and the preservation of its landscapes and culture. Meanwhile, the neighbouring lakes of Levico and Caldonazzo in Valsugana both have a European blue flag, in recognition of the quality of their water and facilities.
Explore & Experience
Children need challenges: and they’ll get plenty of them on a summer holiday in Trentino’s lake district. On the water, they can sail, windsurf and canoe, or feel the power of a mountain river on a canyoning trip. On land, adventure centres such as the Forest Park in Molveno and Busatte Park near Lake Garda offer a spine-tingling mix of zip wires, aerial walkways and jumps. Either way, they’ll discover new landscapes, boost their self-confidence, and have adventures they’ll remember for years to come.
Learn & Play
This is a place to broaden your horizons and learn new skills.
At Molina di Ledro, for example, you can discover how Neolithic and Bronze Age peoples built houses on stilts over the water, to protect themselves from raiders. Meanwhile, along the Rio Caino Ethnographic Path, a 4km walk takes you through a giant open-air museum, where everything from working water mills to bubbling witches’ cauldrons are on show.
