“In the setting of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Trentino is a region rich in history and evocative landscapes. Here are the sports activities available to discover the most beautiful places in Trentino.”
Trentino is the northernmost Italian region and is almost entirely mountainous. It can be divided into two large geological areas: one predominantly siliceous, which extends in the western and northern part, and another calcareous-dolomitic, which extends in the southern and eastern part. The main valley is the Adige Valley, which passes through Bolzano and Trento.
Trentino is rich in waterways: rivers and lakes. The main one is the Adige River with its tributaries Passirio, Noce, Avisio and Isarco. The main lake, however, is Lake Garda, which bathes it in the northern part.
The climate is predominantly high alpine and temperatures in winter are cold. Rains are also frequent and this characteristic makes it the ideal place to carry out outdoor activities that prefer such weather conditions.
This is the richness of Trentino where nature, culture and traditions are mixed to perfection in the frame of the Italian Alps, the green of the land and the blue of the sky.
What to see in Trentino
If you have decided to spend a vacation in Trentino, in the setting of the Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you will always have a spectacular view simply by looking up. Among the most characteristic valleys are the Val di Sole, located in the northwestern part of the autonomous province of Trento, between the Brenta Dolomites and the Maddalene chain. Val di Non is also noteworthy, formed by three plateaus and canyons carved by the Noce River and its tributaries.
But that’s not all, because among the most beautiful places in Trentino there is also Valle di Ledro, located in southern Trentino, between lakes Garda and Idro, on the border with Lombardy. Lake Ledro, at 560 m above sea level, is certainly characteristic. The waters are clear and the turquoise blue color makes it unique and spectacular. Thanks to these characteristics it is ideal for water sports such as canoeing, fishing and swimming.
