Lago Dei Caprioli is a stunning alpine lake made up of springs that trickle from the famous Brenta Dolomites. Here’s all you need to know when visiting.
Many hotels in the area of Val Di Sole have bus transfers available.
We highly recommend renting a car because you have the opportunity to explore the area in your own time.
If you rent a car for your entire trip in Italy, you can pick the car up from the airport in which you land and drive from there into Trentino. Another option is of course a private taxi to the lake.

Best Time To Visit Lago Dei Caprioli In Val Di Sole + Tips
The warmest and driest time of year in Val Di Sole is during July and August. Not the the best time for those interested in skiing but a great time to enjoy this beautiful area and Lago Dei Caprioli.
With average daily temperatures at a pleasant 20°C it’s perfect for walking, picnicking and generally enjoying the beautiful scenery.
However, we visited in the autumn and it was pretty quiet but still really enjoyable. So if you prefer to avoid the crowds, this would be a great option and the autumn colours are amazing.
Don’t forget your camera as there are some spectacular photo opportunities here!
When you arrive there is some paid parking and also some free parking if you don’t mind a short walk.
What To Pack
Lago Dei Caprioli is a beautiful alpine lake situated in the middle of a forest in the heart of Val Di Sole Trentino.
This beautiful lake is easily accessible from the town of Pellizzano, just 6km away. The road from Pellizzano to the lake is a little steep and narrow so be prepared to go carefully.
Lago Dei Caprioli is fed by several small streams and springs that flow from the Brenta Dolomites.
It takes about an hour to walk leisurely around the lake and there are plenty of really pretty places to stop and relax.
The pine trees, snow capped mountains and wooded walkways give it a real enchanted forest feel.
You can admire the mountains all day long in the reflections on the lakes crystalline waters.
The lakeside restaurant is only open in peak summer months, so bring a picnic lunch outside this time. There are numerous picnic tables surrounding the lake, as well as open grassy areas.
This little lake is also said to be one of the best fly fishing spots in Northern Italy. It is stocked regularly with German Brown and Rainbow Trout during the summer months.
Lago Dei Caprioli should definitely be high on your list of things to do in Val Di Sole Trentino as it’s another one of the beautiful lakes in this region.
The secluded area allows you to take a restful afternoon walk or enjoy a peaceful picnic in nature.
