There are plenty of activities for all seasons in the Alto Garda region and we would like to try to fit everything into this article, but we realize it is a bit difficult.
Let’s take it slow!
For rock-climbing enthusiasts, this area is a real temple of climbing: there are 17 crags with countless routes of all difficulties and magnificent views. The Belvedere crag in Nago, for example, is a popular destination: from its 54 routes, you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Sarca river flowing into Lake Garda.
This is also a paradise for vie ferrate: no less than 10 routes of medium and high difficulty that you absolutely must try! At Sarche, one of the most challenging ferratas in Italy is the Rino Pisetta ferrata. Also not to be missed is the Friendship Via Ferrata above Riva del Garda. The view will fill your heart, guaranteed!
But if you are looking for a fascinating route and if you are strong of heart, we recommend the “Lady of the Waters” via ferrata: climbing up the path of a waterfall and passing over it using suspended steel ropes is an emotion that will stay with you forever!
As far as trekking is concerned, the routes are endless. There is a great variety and more or less demanding altitudes: from Monte Altissimo to nearby Monte Bondone there are trails that will help you take your mind off things and enjoy your holiday.
Doable in a day, the trekking routes that the Alto Garda offers are all worth an experience.
We would like to point out the caves of the Varone waterfalls, a true geological rarity that will allow you to live a unique experience: more than 20,000 years of erosion by water that falls in a sensational jump for about 100 meters! From Riva follow the road to Tenno and you will see the signs. You can visit the lower cave, which is already very impressive with its path on steel walkways that will take you to the heart of the waterfall. We encourage you to continue by climbing the 115 steps that will take you through a botanical garden to the upper cave. This excursion is suitable for everyone, especially children, who will be able to see a truly unique spectacle of nature and learn about the variety of plants in the Botanical Garden.
The slopes on Monte Baldo are among the most suggestive: skiing with a view of the lake is truly priceless! Among the slopes, the most challenging and famous is the “Prà Alpesina“, approved for national and international ski competitions, with its numerous connecting variations, on which you can enjoy spectacular sunsets over the lake.
Fans of evolutions have at their disposal the Baldo Snowpark, equipped with a soft fall mattress, which offers fun in complete safety.
For lovers of nature and walking, the Malcesine Monte Baldo cable car offers the possibility to fully enjoy the Monte Baldo landscape even during the winter season, with numerous paths for the more experienced but also for those who want to try snowshoeing for the first time.
During the summer season, there are many activities to do on Monte Baldo, including an interesting horse riding excursion along with the Ippostrada del Baldo. But there’s more: trekking and Nordic walking, mountain bike trails and it won’t be difficult to see someone launching themselves on a paraglider, for an evocative flight between mountains and lake.
