Lake Prags, Braies

(4.7/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Stretch your legs with a brisk hike around Lake Prags, the so-called "Pearl of the Dolomites." This picturesque lake is known for its emerald color and a series of hiking trails leading around the water and through the surrounding nature reserve. The lake is located in the heart of a World Heritage Site that has long been a tourist mecca, attracting skiers in the winter months, and mountain climbers, hikers, base jumpers, and paragliders during the summer and early autumn. As you hike or take part in any of the more extreme activities popular in this area, take long breaks to enjoy the sweeping views of the surrounding snow-capped Dolomite mountains. Put Lake Prags and other Braies attractions into our Braies trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • I don't think I need words to describe this Lake and the surrounding landscape. If you're around here you can't miss it. very nice also the walks that start from close by.

  • Spring, summer, autumn and winter. Every season has its reason that gives strong emotions in this Lake. We frequently go because that's where we find ourselves at home. I leave you some pictures ...

  • I was dreaming to see this Lake, judging from the pictures on the Internet of unearthly beauty, and note there its 40th anniversary. In such places, and this impressive figure is not as terrible skied just near from the Prags (25 km), so it was decided to celebrate there. The snowfall that started has not changed our plans, but! changed: Lake was visible only a small puddle with two ducks and no mountains around! Honestly-it was not anything at all! We drove around the entire Lake on a sledge, turned into snowdrifts, nasmejalis' and ... went to celebrate my ETC in Brunico! Be sure to return to the Lake again, but in the summer or fall. In the middle of winter I would not recommended this place to visit-pointless! Good travel all and pleasant impressions even from snow Lake completely!
