Plateau of Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna
A sinuous mountain, characterized by a variety of reliefs of over 2000 meters up to delicate pastures, huts but also fir woods and clear streams.
Folgaria, Lavarone and Luserna are among the main localities of these areas that house three different communities that for many years have handed down unique traditions throughout the Alps. Cimbrian is still spoken in Luserna today, an ancient German language that attests to the German-Cimbrian colonization of the X-XIII century. The Magnificent Community of Folgaria which is the result of the autonomy of the rural communities and Lavarone as evidence of the many small towns located on the plateau of the same name around the clear lake.
To enhance the value of these areas are also the testimonies of the Great War of 1915-18, from which fortifications, trenches and walkways have remained: particularly interesting is a visit to the museum of the only fort that has remained intact, the Belvedere-Gschwendt .
The Plateaus are an ideal place for those who want to practice outdoor sports during their holidays. In fact, every year during the summer, inaugurated by the Marcia dei Forti, a non-competitive competition takes place that attracts many runners.
This area also offers you the opportunity to undertake many excursions of different kinds and difficulties, on foot, on horseback, by mountain bike, but also to practice sport climbing, free flight and archery. The Nordic Walking Park is an area characterized by 17 paths, 104 km long spread over 105 square km of territory.
A particularly important moment for competitive sport is the 100 km long mountain bike race of the Forts, the Olympic Triathlon in Lavarone, the Gran Bike in Folgaria and the Folgaria Megabike.
