Ponte di Legno in summer
The town of Ponte di Legno is located in the province of Brescia, in upper Lombardy. It is one of the historic places of Italian mountain summer tourism, as it was chosen as a holiday destination by the bourgeoisie of those times since the early twentieth century.
In Ponte di Legno the summer holiday is meant to be dedicated to outdoor activities: you can go hiking, climbing, simple walks or photographic itineraries, or even cycle along the numerous paths. All surrounded by a spectacular landscape, including mountains, woods, meadows and lakes.
There is plenty of choice on the excursions to undertake, in particular 18 itineraries have been created that combine scenic, natural and historical beauties. Each of them has its own connotation, just choose the one that best suits you, both in terms of difficulty and length, and you just have to leave and leave all your thoughts behind.
If, on the other hand, you want to give yourself a break from the mountain routine, you can stay in the village, here there is no boredom: from the indoor swimming pool to the equipped gyms, or approach the world of gof with a circuit suitable for both experts and beginners, naturally surrounded from a fairytale landscape, entirely located at more than 1500 meters above sea level and equipped with 18 holes of all types and difficulties.
Ponte di Legno is one of the ideal locations for those who love cycling and in particular mountain biking. One of the most popular routes is the Alta Val Camonica cycle path, an absolute novelty in these parts, inaugurated during the summer season 2012 connects Ponte di Legno to Vezza d'Oglio, winding along the Oglio river for 12km and passing through idyllic woods and villages. The track is flat, the total difference in height is just under 300 meters. Thanks to these features it is accessible to families, and is a unique opportunity to spend a beautiful day outdoors.
But we certainly cannot talk about Ponte di Legno without mentioning Passo del Tonale at least once. In fact, immediately after the town begins the steep climb that leads to the province of Trento, the culmination of which is the famous Passo del Tonale, now more than ever at the center of mountain tourism in these areas, both summer and winter. Many excursions depart from here and you can reach the Presena Glacier and thus find snow even in the height of summer.
Both from Ponte di Legno and Passo del Tonale are the starting point for most of the hiking trails in the area, from simple walkways suitable for families with children to the more challenging via ferrata on the peaks of the Adamello-Brenta Natural Park, the hiking offer is really wide and it is difficult to be disappointed by the panoramic and historical points of interest offered by these mountains.
After a day spent outdoors to welcome tourists are the numerous bars and restaurants of Ponte di Legno with the welcome of the mountain people and the genuine products produced in these fantastic lands.
