Dolomites Multisport Trips

Lake Garda Multisport Adventure

Climb a via ferrata high above Lake Garda, canyon through a nearby river gorge, and mountain bike to a glacial lake, as you explore the beautiful landscape, fascinating culture, and ever present history of Lake Garda on our multisport adventure!

Trip Overview

On this fantastic itinerary, you’ll explore the northern realm of Lake Garda, from Riva del Garda. Set above the narrow northern part of the lake, and enclosed by mountains, the jagged rock surrounding Riva del Garda creates not only beautiful fjords on the lake, but also fantastic opportunities for all types of activities! You’ll spend one day hiking and climbing a via ferrata – “iron paths” originate from the metal ladders used by the military in WWI to navigate these mountains – affording you spectacular views from high above the lake. Another day you’ll spend canyoning, where you’ll slide your way through a narrow canyons crystal clear waters along the smooth rock. And on the third day you will go mountain biking, from Arco to a glacial lake surrounded by a vast desert of rock, remnant of glacial activities. Plus, there will be plenty of time for swimming and other water activities each day!

Tucked into Northern Italy, Lake Garda is blessed with beautiful beaches, intense transparent blue water, vertical rocky cliffs, rolling hills, and towering mountains, all waiting to be discovered. Just a few hours drive from Milan, Venice, and the Dolomites, Lake Garda (Lago di Garda or Lago Benàco) is the largest, yet least well known of Italy's lakes. Carved by glaciers, the diversity of the landscape here is truly remarkable. The temperate climate and flourishing vegetation – primarily olive and lemon groves, orange trees, palms, cypresses, and oleanders – combine with the landscape to provide a lush background to the remarkable historical and cultural remains dotting the shoreline. Plus, the Dolomite Mountains are never far away, and can be seen towering above the lake. The activities on offer combine with this beautiful setting and its ever present history to make Lake Garda a destination of choice… we hope it will be yours!
