Lake Garda of glacial origin is 346 m deep and, due to its conformation, has different types of seabed, from rich rock formations to gentle sandy bottoms. The lake therefore offers countless diving spots along the entire coastline.
While the lake will fascinate you with its natural wonders, an underwater adventure will be no less: you will discover breathtaking views of rocks and canyons, explore the seabed with its mysterious historical shipwrecks and myriads of perch, pike and burbot.
