Lake Iseo paragliding between Bergamo and Brescia in Lombardy

By Friday, 10 November 2023 11:02

If you have never tried paragliding before, Lake Iseo may give you one more reason to take the plunge.

Ideal cyclists, families but also for fishing enthusiasts

For this heart-in-the-mouth experience you choose from several take-off points, such as Sarnico, Monte Bronzone or the San Fermo hills, and decide to land on the shores of Lake Iseo. The lake is halfway between Bergamo and Brescia, and an ideal destination for cyclists and families but also for fishing enthusiasts.

Mount Isola seems to float on the water

If you want to drive along the entire shoreline you have to allow about two hours. But it is better to enjoy the view directly from the boats that will take you, in just five minutes, from Sulzano to the jewel of this stretch of water: Mount Isola, a veritable floating mountain that soars 600 metres into the air.

Chasing the footprints of a prehistoric reptile 

In 2016, one and a half million visitors had the privilege of reaching Europe's largest lake island from the footbridge designed by Bulgarian artist Christo and christened The Floating Piers. But if you didn't manage to 'walk' on the waters of the Lombardy lake basin on that occasion, you can embark on another adventurous experience: chasing the fossil footprints of the Archosaurs, prehistoric reptiles up to six metres long, on the rocks of the paleontological site of Zone. Also worth a stop is Lovere, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy which is charmingly reflected in Lake Iseo.
