LAKE LIVIGNO

MOUNTAIN WATER

If you want to practice water sports at 1816 meters above the sea, there's a place for you: Lake Livigno. You may bump into rowing teams in high-altitude training sessions or meet relaxed kayak paddlers, and families having fun in paddleboats. But you can also just relax and soak up the Livigno sun.

RESERVOIR, NATURAL ENERGY

 

 In the north of Livigno, straddling Switzerland and Italy, fed by the Spöl – once called Aqua Granda – is a large alpine reservoir: this is Livigno Lake, also known as Lago del Gallo, named after the Ponte del Gallo. Here in the 1960s, a dam was built that has been welcoming visitors arriving from the Munt la Schera tunnel ever since.

This incredible arch dam – 540m long and 130m deep – creates a large reservoir that, at full capacity, contains up to 165 million cubic meters of water producing clean energy used in Italy and Switzerland.

SPORT, SUN, RELAXATION: LIVIGNO LAKE IS ACTIVE

Lake Livigno's power is in its water. You can notice it as soon as you get there.If you hear rhythmic, brisk paddling, chances are you've bumped into a rowing team in a high-altitude training session. If you hear families laughing, they are probably dealing with a 5-person paddleboat. If silence is broken by a sudden splash, it may be a beginner struggling with a kayak or stand-up paddle. If you spot movement on the shore, it's someone walking along the shoreline trail.

After so much energy in action, a bit of relaxation will be good. The Floating Island in the heart of the lake is the right place. It’s a small wooden island where you can dock to sunbathe on deck chairs and benches or take a 360-degree panoramic shot.
