Plagued by wildly capricious weather, in late fall the Lago d’Iseo shows its proverbial “1000 faces”. While the locals are busy harvesting olives, restoring iconic Riva motorboats or exploring the mysterious subterranean waterways of a limestone cave, the animals high up in the mountains and down in the bald cypress forest in the peat bog ready themselves for winter. Lake Iseo is the calm anchor In the midst of all this activity, wilderness and civilization surrounding it in symbiotic proximity.
