Sentiero del Ponale (Tonale Path)
If you are in Valle di Ledro you absolutely cannot miss this excursion literally cantilevered over the waters of Lake Garda. It is a cycle-pedestrian path of almost four kilometers, carved into the rock that connects the Ledro Valley with the center of Riva del Garda. The view you enjoy along the way is something magnificent. Where does the journey begin? Head towards Pregasina (before the tunnel to Pregasina take the path on the left) and enjoy the walk up to Riva del Garda. If you want to take a break along the way, stop on the terrace of the Ponale Alto Belvedere restaurant.
Ledro Land Art
Another route not to be missed in Valle di Ledro is Ledro Land Art, a complex of natural and artistic installations immersed in the woods. It is located in the Pur area, a stone's throw from Lake Ledro. the project consists of works of art constructed from natural materials such as wood, stone and moss. It is highly recommended for families with children and easily accessible with a stroller.
In the Tiarno di Sopra area, this protected natural area is perfect for lovers of fishing or walking. Walking along the wooden walkways you can admire marshes, reeds and numerous animals. Don't miss a visit to the visitor center and try the local products in the restaurant near the lake.
Gorg d’Abiss Waterfall
Not far from the town of Tiarno di Sotto, this canyon and the waterfall that seems to magically emerge from the rocks are worth a visit. It is a simple route (approximately 1.5 km) perfect for hot summer days but equally beautiful even in the winter months when the waterfall is frozen.
Val di Concei

The Ledro Valley was affected by various battles throughout history. The La Marmora Gallery, in Bezzecca, bears witness to historical facts ranging from Garibaldi's battle of 1866 to the First World War. You can arrive by car near the trenches, entry is free and in some places the route is poorly lit.

WHAT TO DO in LEDRO VALLEY
If you are in Valle di Ledro you cannot miss a visit, with tasting, to the Leder Brewery, in Pieve di Ledro. Here beers are handcrafted with pure Alpine spring water and of Bohemian inspiration. In fact, during the First World War the Ledro population was evacuated to Bohemia where the women learned the local methods for producing beer. So the Leder brewery was born, thanks to the passion of Fabrizio, the master brewer, and his family who revive this tradition every day. The types of beer produced are various, all with the name of a location in the Ledro Valley. We fell in love with the Ponale, fresh, light and with fruity notes and the Christmas Ale, designed for the Christmas period with honey and ginger, very good. If you are a beer lover, take a look at their online shop.
The Ledro Valley is perfect for trekking lovers. We have already told you about some routes, but there are so many possibilities. Don't miss, for example, the climb to Punta Larici for a spectacular view of Lake Garda or the excursion to Cima Parì, the highest in the Ledro Valley, although a little more challenging. For a spectacular view of the lake and the entire valley, climb to the top of Monte Corno. It takes more than six hours to walk but it's really worth it.
