Created by a 640-metre-long dam erected across the river Tiber in the 1960s, Lake Corbara extends for some 10-13 square kilometres between Orvieto and Todi.
In the 40 years since it was formed, Lake Corbara has developed into a fascinating eco-system that is today protected by the Tiber River Park, which occupies a long strip of land either side of the river and around the lake itself, providing a number of facilities of quality open air tourism with an eye to preserving the environment.
Caving, fishing, canoeing and rowing are the main sports available on and around the lake. The dramatic contrast between the quiet waters of the lake and the vertical mountains that rise up around, make Lake Corbara ideal for both water sports and climbing.
Caving enthusiasts will find plenty of food for amusement in the area’s labyrinthine network of caves. Fishing is consented all along the Tiber and round Lake Corbara. The Salviano Rowing Centre is fully equipped to cater for the needs of canoeists and rowers.
