Active holiday in the Dolomites
MOLVENO IS KNOWN AS "THE PEARL OF THE DOLOMITES" AND IS A FANTASTIC ENVIRONMENT FOR AN ACTIVE HOLIDAY.
The village is located at an altitude of 850 meters in a beautiful area, which invites you to go out. In addition to the beautiful Lake Molveno, the village also features an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts and a minigolf course. In the cosy village center you will also find nice shops and restaurants.
There is no shortage of summer activities! You can go hiking, cycling and motorcycling or go on an adventure with Via Ferrata or go paragliding.
We warmly welcome you to Hotel Lory: the ideal base for your active holiday in the Dolomites! On this page you can read more about the different activities you can do from our hotel.
From Hotel Lory you can easily discover the area on foot. In about 2.5 hours you can walk all the way around Lake Molveno. On the way you can take a dip in the clear water. There are also many beautiful hiking trails in the vicinity of the village and in the Adamello Brenta natural park. We have set out ten beautiful walking routes, which we would like to share with you.
The Brenta Dolomites and Lake Molveno have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2009. And in 2017, the area received an award for the best hiking destination. This of course is not without reason!

Cycling, mountain biking & downhill riding
If you prefer to get on a bike, then you are at the right place. In the Dolomites you can enjoy road cycling, mountain biking and downhill riding. Which ever you choose, you get to enjoy breathtaking climbs and adrenaline filled descents along the way. We are happy to advise you on the various beautiful routes and stops.
When you bring your own bicycle, you can clean it after your tour and store it safely in our locked bicycle storage. If you would like to rent an (electric) bicycle on site, it is possible.
At Hotel Lory we are equipped to receive cyclists and cycling groups. The day starts with a wholesome and healthy breakfast buffet, after which you can leave fully energized. When you return home there is the possibility to join the pasta buffet and in the evening a 3-course dinner.
It is possible to wash and dry your cycling clothes, so that you can go on an adventure in fresh gear the following day.
Motorcycling in the Dolomites means taking countless hairpin curves along the jagged red rocks of the mountains. This is ultimate enjoyment! Motorcyclists who have driven on these roads in the past will agree that this environment is one of the most beautiful sceneries to bike through. Due to our central location and convenient facilities, such as an indoor parking garage, Hotel Lory is the ideal base for your active motor holidays in the Dolomites.
If you are in for an adventure, Via Ferrata may also be something for you! During Via Ferrata you climb along the marked routes on the rock walls of the Brenta massif, connected to steel cables. This is a fantastic activity for the people who have no vertigo.
Paragliding is the best way to overlook the village and lake from above. Go on a spectacular 30 minute tandem flight with a professional guide. Afterwards you can enjoy the photos and videos that have been made during the flight. This is a beautiful memory of your active holidays in the Dolomites.
