Bike Touring Highlight
The Cancano lakes are two adjacent artificial water basins, owned by A2A S.p.A., located in the Valle di Fraele in the Municipality of Valdidentro, not far from Bormio, a renowned tourist resort in the Valtellina in the province of Sondrio.
These two reservoirs are fed, overall, by the waters of the Adda river, which arises not far from the two basins on Monte Ferro as well as from the spans of the Spöl canal, the Gavia - Forni - Braulio canal and the new Viola Bormina canal. The total flow of the two reservoirs is 187 million cubic meters of water and feed the Premadio hydroelectric plant, also located in the Municipality of Valdidentro. Despite their proximity, the two basins have different names: Lake of San Giacomo and Lake of Cancano II
