Known as the pearl of the Dolomites, the lake is not only one of the most beautiful Italian lakes, but is also said to have therapeutic properties for those suffering from respiratory illnesses. A legend has it that the lake was a gift from the fairy of Mount Cristallo to the daughter of King Sorapiss, Misurina, who desired a magic mirror. The mirror (of water) was granted her on the one condition that the king would be turned into an imposing mountain, thus explaining the formation of the Sorapiss mountains which form a dramatic background to the lake.

It was a great day, with perfect weather! Our driver/guide, Miriam, was excellent, pointing out points of interest and giving information and history of the places we passed and stopped at. She took the time to show us things we would have missed, and made plenty of stops along the way for photo opportunities. Lunch was on your own at Lake Misurina, with several choices. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day with breathtaking views of the mountains, and a highlight of my trip to Italy.

Me and my friends really enjoyed the private trip because there were only us. Our driver and guide Simone was the best because he is knowledgeable and gave us really good recommendations where to eat and what to do. Trip was breathtaking because we stopped at the picturesque places. We really recommend to book this trip because it takes you to the best points in mountains. The minivan was comfortable and with air conditioner.

Had an amazing trip with our guide Simone (ask for him if you can, he's the best!) October turned out to be a great time to go to the Dolomites - weather permitting - with almost no traffic and crowds. We had time for plenty of stops in idyllic Lake Misurina, pastures, and towns with breathtaking views of the Dolomites.

I have an excellent trip and the Italian Guide is Simone who is a plus factor that makes this an excellent trip! I am so happy with this and it was really nice. Dolomites is worth to visit for! :)

Just a heavenly experience! Speechless!! Mountain lovers must go there.
