Lake Maggiore is 54 km long, with a coastline of over 150km and at its widest is 12 km. Like all the other Northern Italian lakes it is a deep glacial basin fed by rivers; Verzasca, Giona, and Cannobino flow into the lake. Its major outlet is the Ticino which, in turn, joins the river Po just south-east of Pavia.
Piedmont and Lombardy are two major regions surrounding the Lake but the most northerly section of Lake Maggiore extends a dozen kilometres into Switzerland, the lowest point above sea-level in Switzerland.
The climate as with all these protected lakes is mild in both summer and winter, producing lush vegetation, with beautifully planted gardens in wonderful villas growing rare and exotic plants. Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa. These lakes are almost like a lost world. They also have their monsters apparently!
Lake Maggiore Activities:
Des Iles Borromees Golf course is a T testing 18 holes lie at 500m above sea level. Following the natural terrain and the lush vegetation of the hills above Lake Maggiore. The course is more a test of accuracy than distance while the back 9 holes offer stunning views over the lake. This is a Par 72, 6122 meters. Weekdays from €42, weekends from €65
If you wish to trek over to Lake Como you can experience the famous Menaggio and Cadenabbia golf course. Originally founded by an English aristocrat in 1907, this very tight 18 hole course was completely redesigned in 1965 but still maintains a traditional British feel. It offers breathtaking views over Lake Como from its elevated position above the lakes western shore. The clubhouse features a magnificent library of golfing literature, said to be second only to that at St Andrews. This is a Par 70 of 5455 meters. Weekdays from €55, weekends from €70
Lake Maggiore offers an exceptionally wide range of water sports, from wild water rafting to sailing, wind surfing, kite surfing, canoeing and swimming.
There are a number of boat clubs (Intra, Pallanza, Omegna, Pettenasco) and a Regatta Club in Belgirate. During the summer windsurfing and catamarans are popular at the Cannobio Lido in upper reaches of Lake Maggiore. Canoeing and kayaking have become much more popular in the narrow valleys at the end of the Lake especially in the fast water zones.
Scuba diving clubs are now becoming more popular and as Lake Maggiore is up to 300m deep, there is always the chance of bumping into that monster of the deep. Check out the night diving at Cannobio
Hang gliding is also undertaken by the locals and double ups can be had for the more adventurous. Whilst you glide over and down the Lake, perhaps the less active could take a go at catching one of the famous Lake fish. A license is necessary however and there are specific rules applied....
As English speaking information is not that freely available on the more exotic of these sports, we would recommend you ask the hotel staff prior to arrival about a particular sports facility. Its all there, but an adventure finding it of course....
