About this place

There are a large number of lakes of different origins in Friuli Venezia Giulia: lakes formed by the inflow of water from streams or from underground aquifers, lakes of glacial origin fed by melting snow, and artificial lakes surrounded by mountains and forests. Some are hidden remote among the mountains; others allow beautiful walks along the lake; still others are bathing, equipped for sunbathing or canoeing and various sports activities. Each lake in Friuli is a unique experience waiting to be discovered.
