Valsugana, Lagorai and Valle dei Mocheni
A naturally feel-good holiday amongst lakes, spas and plenty of sport
Rich in woods, fertile fields and swimming lakes, like Lake Levico and Lake Caldonazzo, this latter the biggest in Trentino, Valsugana includes the Lagorai mountain chain with its wild nature, the pleasant Vigolana plateau, the Tesino basin and the Valle dei Mocheni.
If you love outside activities, like excursions in the mountains or mountain biking, Valsugana will be like your natural training ground with a vast network of trails and high altitude mountain huts and a beautiful cycling track along the Brenta river.
The two large Valsugana lakes are both European Blue Flag lakes thanks to the quality of their water and of their infrastructure. At Lake Caldonazzo you can go canoeing, sailing, windsurfing as well as waterskiing. Lake Levico, enclosed by green hills covered in woods, is perfect for relaxing with the family. You can spend your holiday completely free in the great outdoors in one of many welcoming camping sites.
At the Valsugana spa centres your relaxation and your well-being are guaranteed. Levico Terme, together with Vetriolo, has been an elegant treatment centre since the 19th century, a Central European tourist destination, and boasts hotels equipped with modern wellness areas. Roncegno Terme is now a centre focused mainly on natural therapies.
In December, don’t miss out on the typical Christmas Markets in the Hapsburg Park in Levico and in Pergine Valsugana.
Valsugana is also apt for Alpine skiing and snowboarding with its ski areas designed for families: on Panarotta and at Passo Brocòn kids can enjoy games and perfectly fluffy ski slopes under the sun where they can learn to ski with the aid of specialised ski-instructors.
Alternative Skiing offers various possibilities: from ski mountaineering, which will allow you to appreciate the beauty of the Lagorai Group and of Cima d’Asta, to snowshoe hikes, for a more natural approach to the mountains. Not to mention cross-country skiing, which can be done on the long slopes of the infinitely vast Vezzena plateau.
Those who love being in nature will be able to spend wondrous holidays in farmhouse inns and in one of the many renovated mountain huts in Val dei Mocheni and in the Tesino area.
