About Lake Orta
Thanks to the quiet beauty of the landscape, its fascinating history and its wealth of artistic treasures, Romanesque and Baroque architecture, Lake Orta has long been the destination of poets, artists and writers.
Lake Orta lies to the west of Lake Maggiore, in northern Italy. Far from the chaos and the unpleasant "stress of life", this restful area with its blue water and clean air offers the opportunity to rediscover nature.
Mimosas, palms and olive trees grow around the lake as well as azaleas, camellias and rhododendron. At higher levels are chestnut forests, oaks and birch trees.
There are many footpaths that lead from the towns and villages through the forests up the hills and mountains.
The Mottarone (height 1385 m.) which divides Lake Maggiore from Lake Orta is equipped with lifts for winter sports. On clear days it offers a charming view of seven lakes, Monte Rosa and the chain of the Alps.
BIKE TRAILS: We suggest that you take the funicular railway from Stresa (tel. ++39-0323-30399) at Lake Maggiore, on which you can take your mountain bike up to the summit (18 minutes journey) and descend from the summit towards the slopes of Lake Orta.
WATER SPORTS: Lovers of water sports will find places to swim in Lake Orta as well as scuba diving, kayaking, sailing and water skiing. It is possible to rent kayaks, small motor boats and to windsurf.
FISHING: You may fish at the Laghetto di Bonte Bria and on the West Bank of the Laghetti di Nonio. There are many fishing clubs in the area.
HORSEBACK RIDING: There are a number of riding stables at Lake Orta in Miasino, Egro and Invorio, some of which offer riding courses at various levels.
GOLF: There are numerous golf courses in the area such as Golf Club Des Iles Borromées a Brovello Carpugnino - Motta Rossa, n. 18 holes - mt. 6165 - Par72-S.S.S. 72 and Golf Club Alpino a Gignese, fr. Vezzo, n. 9 holes - mt.5.397 - Par 69-S.S.S.68.Read more
