From Riva del Garda to Bastione and then on up to Santa Barbara: this hike touches on two of the symbols of the town perched on the mountainside above Riva del Garda    

Among flowers and trenches - Dromaè and Cima d'Oro

Woods, malghe, meadows with expanses of daffodils and peonies in bloom, Austrian trenches and breathtaking views over Lake Ledro are all to be found along the path that leads to Dromaè and Cima d’Oro (i.e. Golden Summit), which owes its name to the colour it takes at sunset.

On the roof of Valle di Ledro: Monte Cadria

The ascent from the woods of Concei to the top of Monte Cadria is among the most demanding that Valle di Ledro has to offer, but also one of the most rewarding.

WWI: from S. Giovanni to Cima Rocca

This trail is highly recommended for all history fans: a visit to the system of tunnels in Cima Rocca together with breathtaking views of Lake Garda

Monte Cocca

Route which leads up to the top of Monte Cocca, offering a beautiful view over Lake Ledro and the villages on the valley floor.

GardaTrek - Low Loop 1: from Riva del Garda to Arco

The first stage of the trek links the two main towns in Garda Trentino and takes you from Riva del Garda to Arco.

From Nago to the summit of Monte Altissimo

Monte Altissimo is one of the most popular destinations with hikers in Garda Trentino who are drawn by its wonderful lake views which change with every bend along the trail.

From Malga Campo to Monte Stivo, a balcony over Lake Garda

This is a trail for experienced hikers which leads to Cima Bassa and then along the ridge to the summit of Stivo, one of the most spectacular viewing points in Garda Trentino

Along the torrent Massangla

Circular route along the old Roman road to Croina, among natural and historical wonders.

Between the Sarca Valley and the slopes of Monte Stivo, this stage of GardaTrek Medium Loop crosses some of the lesser known but equally charming areas of Garda Trentino

A hike around Monte Calino, the mountain of Tenno

This hike is all about Monte Calino, close to Tenno. It is like a natural balcony overlooking the Busa, as locals call the Basso Sarca plain, and lake Garda.
