The sporty side of Lake Garda

Active Holiday

Two winds alternate on the largest lake in Italy: the Peler and the Ora. The first one usually starts to blow at dawn, the second one rises in the afternoon: together they create the ideal condition for lovers of water sports, the perfect place for sailors and windsurfers. But for an active holiday on Lake Garda, in addition to the elements of air and water, there is also the earth. With over 50 cliffs of every degree of difficulty and inclination, Arco is a must for climbing enthusiasts, so much so that every year, on the occasion of the Rock Master Festival, it hosts the Climbing World Cup in which international athletes compete. In the Garda area, the charm of the mountains is irresistible. While going up, on foot or by bicycle, along the numerous paths in the area you can experience the unique nature of this landscape; from peaks soaring over 2000 metres you can see olive trees and lemons growing down below. Breathing the scent of the Mediterranean scrub while hiking through alpine landscapes makes for a truly unique experience.

Cultura, arte e tradizione nel Garda Trentino

Castles & Museums

Cultural holiday on Lake Garda

The Garda Trentino landscape is made up of ancient villages (probably the most beautiful is Canale di Tenno) with characteristic streets, small churches, historic houses and stone fountains. But there are also museums, as the Upper Garda (MAG), in the fortress of Riva del Garda, and castles, the famous one of Arco, and those of Drena, Ala or Besenello, and the spectacular geological park of the Marocche.
In less than an hour you can reach Rovereto, a city rich in cultural attractions, and visit MART, an internationally renowned modern and contemporary art museum. In Trento, MUSE, the Science Museum, is not to be missed. Both structures are of architectural interest: the museum of Rovereto was designed by Mario Botta, MUSE is a work by Renzo Piano.
