Bogn, the fjord of Lake Iseo

On the western shore of Lake Iseo, following the winding coastal road from Lovere to Sarnico, and just before you reach the village of Riva di Solto, you will encounter a place of rare beauty.

Reminiscent of the Norwegian fjords, you will see a high, smooth cliff face that plunges straight down into the lake – this is the Bogn, one of the most remarkable natural surprises of Lake Iseo.

You can park your car at the parking before the village of Riva di Solto and walk along the promenade, which will lead you to a car-free area where you will find picnic tables and a small pebble beach.

The road continues until it reaches the green lagoon of Bogn. The little bay is a perfect spot for a swim during hot days.
