Lago Di Molveno In Molveno – A Complete Guide

It’s not hard to see why Lago Di Molveno is voted one of the best lakes in Italy. So with plenty of activities to choose from, here’s all the visiting info.

How To Get To Lago Di Molveno

Lago Di Molveno, or Lake Molveno, is situated at the feet of the Brenta Dolomites.

Just a 5 minute drive from Andalo, or 15 minute drive from Fai Della Paganella, the lake itself is accessible from anywhere in Molveno town.

The best options in terms of public transport are hotel transfers, buses or taxis.

We recommend renting a car for your entire Italy trip. That way you can pick up the car from the airport and explore the region at ease. Plus there are plenty of car parks available within Molveno.

If you’re in a large group, or would simply like an English speaking guide, then we highly recommend booking with Brenta Walk.

What To Expect At Lago Di Molveno

Certainly one of the most popular things to do in Paganella, and arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in Trentino!

Spanning across 4.5 km in length, and 1.5 km in width, Lago Di Molveno represents the largest alpine lake located above an altitude of 800m.

The lake is hugely popular in summer, amongst both locals and tourists, due to its incredible blue colours and lengthy beaches.

Another reason is that the water is perfect for bathing, as the temperature during the summer season ranges from 14 to 21 degrees.

Plenty of activities are available both on and off the lake.

Those on the lake range from stand up paddle boarding, to canoeing and electric boat rides.

Then you have the surrounding areas which include a crazy golf course, pump track and the extremely popular Acquapark.

If you’re not looking to spend too much money on your trip, you can also relax on the beach, go swimming or walk the perimeter of the lake.

Walking around the outskirts of Lago Di Molveno will take roughly two and a half hours by foot. Although it’s definitely worth it to witness the backdrop of the Dolomites from such different angles!

We visited Lago Di Molveno a couple of times during our trip to Paganella, and both were equally as refreshing. Just don’t forget to grab a traditional Italian pizza at Pizzico before you leave!
