Not far from the village there is the windest place of the lake, which offers freestyle windsurfing in the early morning: the horn of Predore. Suitable for medium-skilled practitioners who have their own equipment available: the only service present is the little dock. The handsome "Vet", the morning wind from the north, could works from May to October. For windsurfing in the afternoon is better to go to north, where it is particularly strong for "Ora", that is a quieter afternoon wind. We can give you all the info of the case, we are passionate windsurfers
At the height of the Grè area, before Castro and the unforgettable road over the lake, there are friends of Sportaction club, offering courses and rentals for windsurfing, canoeing, kite surfing and sailing
In the small hamlet of Tavernola there is a small sail club sail club, which, though having limited facilities, enjoys the advantage of a better exposed base for the afternoon wind. In the lower lake there are other sailing clubs with good facilities, but with less wind. Exiting from their piers you are forced to sail slowly to reach other lakes areas including that of our local club.
Particularly appreciated is the tour of the lake, on the common roads, and also on the Vello-Toline byke pedestrian track. There is also the climb from Tavernola, which touches the Magotina. Once you arrive in Bratta you can go on mountain bike trails. Possible other itineraries towards Val Camonica or Lake Endine, passing from Riva di Solto and facing a short but challenging climb. Several trails are also found in the Franciacorta area, between the lake and the city of Brescia.
Not far south of Tavernola there is a well knowed cliff, with southern exposure. Comprised of different sectors, with routes suitable for all tastes, from beginners (in the Central Sector) to the most experienced climbers (the Aladdin sector, with the way of Dreams of Glory 8c). Other areas to mention are the Gradoni and the Blue Sector, an immense balcony above the Central Sector and not to be missed on sunny winter days. The rock is a compact limestone, holes and reglettes.
