Is fishing your passion? Valle Sabbia is pleased to welcome you to its peaceful lakes, alpine ponds, rivers and brooks. Just let yourself go with your family and enjoy memorable moments far away from the chaotic city life.
Lake Idro is one of the most famous attractions in Valle Sabbia. You can easily get there by car. Wild and flourishing nature is what it’s all about. Thanks to its beautiful promenades, to its park areas and to its fascinating beaches, Lake Idro is the perfect place where couples, groups and families can relax (four-legged friends are more than welcome!).
You can either lay back on a beach and relax enjoying the awesome mountain landscape, or go swimming. Are you passionate about recreational fishing? Enjoy your time fishing the local fish species: perch, pike, chub, eel and “alborelle” ( a typical species from the Cyprinidae family).
And that is not all! Valle Sabbia has even more to offer . In the Maniva area there are two amazing alpine ponds (Laghetto di Vaia and Laghetto Dasdana), where you can spend wonderful revitalizing days or go trout fishing.
If you love rivers, Valle Sabbia is surely not going to disappoint you! After having gone fishing in the most important rivers of this area (the Chiese and Caffaro rivers), it is impossible not to have a break and go for a walk along their shores. There are a number of exciting paths waiting for you! And when you get hungry, do not hesitate to experience diverse local food (there are some exquisite restaurants specialized in freshwater fish cuisine).
