Enjoy the spectacular views of the Valsugana cycling, walking or paragliding over the valley and exploring the places recommended by the locals.
The Alta Valsugana and Bernstol are perfect areas for sport and outdoor activities and whether you like extreme sport or simply relaxing in nature with your children, it won’t be difficult to find the ideal day out!
The variety of landscapes provides breathtaking views all year round and there are many pleasant walks in the woods or strenuous climbs and descents for more demanding sportsmen and women. Not to forget the lakes and stunning beaches where you can relax after a day out, perhaps with an ‘aperitif ‘ or dinner at one of the many excellent restaurants in the area.
Fortresses and castles in the Valsugana
There are many castles in the Valsugana bearing witness to the historical events of the past. In some of them there are guided tours and others which can only be admired from without. One of the most important is the Castle of Pergine, a magnificent medieval fortress on the top of ‘Colle Tegazzo’. Until now it is the only castle in the Trentino with a hotel inside it.www.visitvalsugana.it
Breathtaking panoramas and the Lagorai chain
The pride of the Valsugana are its breathtaking landscapes. The nearby mountains and their height provide stunning views over the lakes and the Lagorai peaks.Mappa
Works of land art in nature in Arte Sella
Worth visiting is also a very suggestive walk in Arte Sella, at the foot of ‘Cima 12’. Here you can see an open air exhibition of artistic works created by professional artists using stones, rocks, tree trunks, leaves, branches and other natural elements.www.visitvalsugana.it
The lakes of Caldonazzo and Levico Terme
If you are looking for some peace and quiet in the sun; if you love water sports or pleasant walks in nature, the lakes of Caldonazzo and Levico are the perfect destination. You can swim from May to September, there are bathing facilities and well-equipped free beaches with lifeguards present in July and August. The lakes have received the Blue Flag award for years thanks not only to the clear waters, but also the well organised accommodation facilities in the surrounding areas. The lake of Caldonazzo is the largest lake in the Trentino and is famous for water sports such as canoeing, dragon-boat, water skiing and swimming. A beautiful cycle path runs along its east side and connects Caldonazzo with Pergine. The Colle di Tenna (Hill of Tenna) separates it from the smaller lake of Levico, a body of water surrounded by woods, two well equipped beaches and a very large free beach, where you can relax on the grass in the shade of glorious big trees, have a picnic or have fun on the beach soccer, beach volley and basket ball courts. Near the beach there is a large game area and an open air gym with modern equipment for abdominals, squats, legs and arms and balance exercises. The very pretty path of the ‘Pescatori’ (Fishermen) which continues right around the lake through the woods is well worth walking.www.visitvalsugana.it
Military fortifications and border trenches
There are, in the area, fortifications, trenches, military observatories and trails, all relics of the First World War. At certain periods of the year it is possible to visit some of the structures and sometimes guided tours or artistic and cultural events are organised with the aim of remembering and reviving these places.www.visitvalsugana.it
