Jewels of the Alps - Italy’s Great Lakes: Lake Iseo

Beset by wild weather capers, Lake Iseo shows its proverbial 1000 faces in late autumn. While people are harvesting olives, restoring Riva boats or exploring mysterious waterways of a karst cave, the animals of the bald cypress forest, the peat bog and the mountains are preparing for winter. At their center rests the lake, around which wilderness and civilization merge in close proximity.
