Lake Iseo & Franciacorta, 5 tips for winter


If you think that you can enjoy lakes only during Summertime, then think again. Lombard lakes are full of activities during winter.

Let us give you a few pointers for this season. You will have the chance to spend the most pleasant days at Lake Iseo and Franciacorta!


1. Put some skis and snow shoes

The cliffs that surround Lake Iseo become a coveted destination with the first snowfall. Outdoor enthusiasts will be able to go on a walk with snow shows or make part of the events that have been organized for the season. For example, at the summit of Monte Guglielmo it is possible to reach the Croce di Marone Pass at a 1900 meters altitude. Go north from Pisogne by car and arrive to Val Palot, fit for skiing and walking with snow shoes. Do not forget about the 20 skiing lanes of Montecampione.

2. Relax in front of a chimney

There are plenty of tourist structures by the lake and at the Franciacorta area that offer comfortable and welcoming Spas. You will find warmth during these cold days with their saunas, jacuzzis and color therapy showers.

3. Among monuments and cafes

Winter is the perfect time to take a walk among the streets of Lovere, one of the most beautiful boroughs in Italy. Take a look at its historic district. Enjoy the view of its civic tower and visit the charming Basilica of Santa Maria in Valvendra. Don't forget to have a cup of hot chocolate at one of the many bistrots of the harbor and the downtown area.

4. Lake tours

Besides the usual transportation system that takes visitors to Monte Isola all year long, it is possible to make reservations to take a guided tour to the three islands, with a stop to the ancient fishing borough of Peschiera Maraglio. The trail that leads to the Virgin of the Ceriola at the top of the island starts here. Here you can admire the lake and the snowy peaks that surround it.
