CYCLING AT LAKE CAVAZZO (UD)
The lake of Cavazzo is a place much loved by my boys. At just over 80 km from Grado, you can immerse yourself in nature and bathe in its cold waters in peace. Take the motorway for Udine / Tarvisio / Austria, exit at Tolmezzo and follow the signs for the city, immediately after you will find the signs for the lake. The parking is ample and there is immediately a bar with umbrellas where you can stop and admire the mountains, you can rent pedal boats and canoes. We continued by bicycle and reached the jetty from which we can dive, we left the backpacks with all the necessary to make the picnic sheltered from the trees. We cycled on the dirt road again for 2km north admiring the mountains and listening to the silence. Returning back we walked another circuit and then we had many baths and ate ice cream in peace. At the lake there are more tracks you can follow or if you have older kids you can opt to do the whole tour along a small stretch of Somplago-Alesso municipal road along the north shore. The tracks are all on dirt and shaded, there are beautiful panoramic views but beware there are no fountains, bring plenty of water.
