Lake Braies is one of the lakes that embellish the mountains scenery of South Tyrol region in Italy, part of the Dolomites mountain range. One might think that there's nothing special about a lake in the mountains, but Lake Braies is pretty unforgettable, combining a unique mix of picturesque views, fascinating hiking opportunities, fun water activities, as well as representing a starting point for visits to other outstanding lakes in the Dolomites.
While the water of the lake is almost ice cold and rather deep, there are always those crazy adventurers that will find the courage to jump in. For the regular traveler that prefers more mundane adventures, there are row-boats which can be rented in order to explore the lake from a different point of view.
This lake is not the only one in the Dolomites, other blue-green gems appearing among green valleys and edgy barren peaks. Among others, the best lakes that can easily be discovered include Lake Carezza and its turquoise waters, enchanting Lake Dobiacco, as well as Lake Landro, Lake Federa, Lake Alleghe, Lake Misurina and more.
And now, for this trip, bring your Alp Wundersocks, a hat and a scarf and you are set for this adventure. Keeping your feet warm will make such a difference in your comfort.
Wundersocks were designed by Sport Mayrl, a family-owned business in the South Tyrol region of the Italian Alps. Located in the heart of the Alps, where you’ll find both locals and outdoor experts, we spent 30 years looking into this area. Based on our experience, numerous tests and trials, we developed these socks, which truly live up to their name – "Wundersocks".
