DISCOVERY NORTH LAKE GARDA

An itinerant trek spread over a number of days discovering the Lake Garda area – the crown of the Trentino region.

Request more info  

A system of paths which are connected between each other will allow us to move around on foot carrying a back pack, enjoying breath taking views every day, walking across valleys and meadows and seeing interesting historical landmarks from castles and areas touched by the Great War. This system’s pivotal point is Lake Garda, Italy’s largest lake, which every year attracts millions of tourists from all over the world thanks to its beauty and charm.

The Mediterranean climate positively influences the vegetation which ranges from olive trees to woods of oak trees and pastures, until you reach your destination up high at altitude and final arrival point each day.
The participants will be able to fully experience the true atmosphere of a real mountain hut, taste local products and enjoy a night up at altitude.

The difficulty level is medium, there is no exaggerated vertical height gain and the treks are never too difficult, however each participant will have to organize his/her own back pack to satisfy his/her needs throughout the five days of trekking, 

The only prerequisites are the spirit to adapt and the wish to live an adventure!

In the morning meet up in Arco and transfer with bus (roughly 50 mins) destination Viote del Bondone (1565m). From Viote the trekking climbs up the wide panoramic ridge of Monte Cornetto (2170m). A short stop on the top before heading along one of the most beautiful paths of the Upper Garda area’s ridge, the “traverse Cornetto-Stivo” (n.617), with sections which constantly run up and downhill touching a series of minor peaks - Campo Fiorito, La Becca, Carbonil, Rocchetta, Palon, Cima Alta and Cima Bassa – and a few passes which join up the Valle dei Laghi from the Adige Valley. The view from up above allows you to see the entire southern part of Trentino, accompanied by the magical profile of the Brenta Dolomites. The last section becomes more difficult, reaching along the ridge, the peak of Monte Stivo (2050m), the day’s destination! The view of Lake Garda from up here is stunning. Rif. Marchetti (2015 m) is 15 min further down on the opposite side, where dinner awaits us and where we will spend the night.

During the morning a pleasant downhill path through sweet smelling grassy pastures, from the 2015m of the mountain hut goes past Malga Stivo and reaches the cultivated fields of S.Barbara (1169). From here the path continues downhill through the woods (SAT path n.637) and allows us to reach Maso Naranch (853m), where a delicious lunch awaits us offering typical, local products of Val di Gresta.
During early afternoon, a bus transfer will lead us to a small car park situated at 1560m on the slopes of Monte Altissimo (2053m). We will walk up the north side and in roughly two hours (430m of vertical height gain) we will reach Rifugio Damiano Chiesa for dinner, situated close to the summit.

If the weather conditions allow it, alternatively, it is possible  to take the “Ventrar” path, a real ledge overlooking the lake, where it is possible to find unique botanical species, typically found in the rocky environment of Monte Baldo.
