The Ciclabile della Valle di Ledro cycling path unfolds on the valley floor between Lake Ledro and Lake Ampola. It’s ideal for kids and families.

The cycling path runs parallel to the main road through Valle di Ledro. The villages along the way are Pieve, Bezzecca, Tiarno di Sotto and Tiarno di Sopra. Lake Ledro is perfect for swimming or taking up water sports, whereas Lake Ampola is among the few lakes which have been preserved in their natural state to this day. The lake changes with the seasons: in Summer, when the waterlilies are in bloom, it turns yellow.
