They spiral up metres high in front of the impressive mountain panorama, spin around on their own axes, and display incredible tricks. Those who prefer being more laid-back can take a leisurely boat ride across the lake or try their hand at stand-up paddling.

By the way: Lago di Resia/Reschensee is not only known by water sports enthusiasts, but also functions as an eerily beautiful film backdrop for the Netflix series ‘Curon’.
