CWT Leisure: A refreshing dip in a lake

For many people, vacation is not vacation if it does not involve water and a beach. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be the ocean – often a refreshing dip in the cool waters of a lake is enough.

Lake Garda, one of Italy’s most beautiful lakes, is a popular destination, not only in Bella Italia, and attracts visitors all year round. The fantastic views of the glittering blue lake with its lidos in the south and the surrounding mountains make Lago di Garda one of the most popular lakes in Europe.

Close to Salzburg is Lake Wolfgang. It is a wonderful place to take a hike through the picturesque landscape and enjoy the magnificent views from Mount Schafberg. Of course, Lake Wolfgang is not only ideal for nature lovers; it is also a great place to relax and pamper yourself.

Lake Wörthersee is always a great destination for a holiday in Austria! The largest lake in the state of Carinthia enchants visitors with its clear, turquoise water and wonderful lakeside promenades. Spend your vacation hiking in the surrounding mountains or walking along the lakeshore.

The Plitvice Lakes region on the border to Bosnia Herzegovina is not just Croatia’s most famous national park, but also its largest one with 29,500 hectares! It was one of the first to be protected as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hiking paths for different fitness levels take you through the extensive nature reserve with its wild vegetation. The 16 lakes are arranged in cascades and separated only by natural barriers. The “Great Waterfall” in the lower part of the lakes is an unforgettable sight!

If you can’t decide which lake to visit, then Sweden might be the ideal destination for you. The country offers plenty of opportunities for an active or a relaxed holiday. You might even meet a moose or Pippi Longstocking in its forests. But there is enough space in this unique landscape for more than Astrid Lindgren’s world-famous children’s stories. Maybe you will find your perfect holiday spot here.

We would be happy to help you find your dream destination!
