The mountains around Riva Lake Garda italy – alpine mountaineering
Garda Lake Italy – High and steep mountains emerging from the quiet blue sea water, green valleys rich of torrents, waterfalls, small lakes, meadows and forests. Here at Lake Garda Italy every outdoor activitiy is possible all year round. The village of Arco is a famous spot for rock climbing, here are the most difficult and panoramic via ferratas in Italy. The Lake Garda area is suitable for every type and length of hiking and trekking trips on the paths built by Italian soldiers in the WW1. In winter time the mountains tops around Lake Garda are covered by snow and it is not rare that our Alpine School accompanies its customers skiing in the morning and rock climbing in a T-Shirt in the afternoon in the lower sunny spots.

Description: Tour with alpine character in a particular scenic landscape with excellent view over the entire Dolomites area. Departing from Rovereto with our mini-van, we are heading towards Lake Garda until we have reached the starting point of our tour in Riva del Garda (ca. 30 min. by car). A rather steep forest path will lead us the sanctuary “S. Barbara” from where will follow our path – partially on via ferrata (iron-ladder path) – to Rocchetta Peak (1.519 m). The elevation difference which has to be mastered is ca. 1.400 m. This trekking trip can be done in wintertime as well. We would like to underline that a very good physical condition is a prerequisite for the participation at this tour. An ascent in summertime must not be under-estimated due to the strong exposure to the sun during the entire trekking trip.
What to bring: backpack – water – sandwich – light windcheater – trekking boots – hiking sticks.
