Our campsite a few minutes from Lake Braies

The pearl of the Dolomites

The famous Lake Braies is an enormous attraction for visitors from all over the world. It’s not without reason that it is one of the most famous and beautiful lakes in the Dolomites.

And the best thing: it is only a few minutes away from our campsite. Whether by mountain bike, by car or by bus: Lake Braies is within easy reach for our guests.

Hiking Lago di Braies

Hiking area

From the walking path to the via ferrata: the forests, valleys and Dolomite peaks around the lake are a paradise for hikers. Have you ever enjoyed the view of the lake from Croda del Becco (2,810 m, 1,300 metres higher than the lake)?

A unique experience once you make it to the top.

A boat trip is fun …

There is a boat rental at Lake Braies where you can hire a small vessel. But be careful not to fall into the water, as it is quite cold even in summer.

The lake has become particularly well known in recent years thanks to the Italian TV series “Un passo dal cielo” (“The mountain police – Close to heaven”). Social media such as Instagram and Facebook have contributed to a significant rush.

And it’s no wonder: Lake Braies is one of the most beautiful places in the Dolomites.

Access restriction in summer

Unfortunately, a large crowd also brings with it a considerable volume of traffic. Those responsible were therefore forced to take countermeasures. Please note that access to the lake is not unrestricted in the months of July and August.

It’s best to ask at reception how best to get to the lake.
