Monte Stivo overlooks the entire Upper Garda-Trentino area and its surrounding valleys and its peak offers a unique view. It is the diversity of landscapes that makes our area one of a kind. Trekking on Mount Stivo allows us to appreciate them all, in their perfect balance and change in prospective! Observing Lake Garda from up here is truly an amazing spectacle! And then from the summit all you have to do is turn your glance right round across the wide horizon. The itinerary that our guides have come up with adds also an extra touch of adrenaline during the descent.

One of the most striking areas in the whole of the upper Garda area! Once you reach Malga Campo (1385 m) by bus transfer, the hike leads you through pastures and wood land, to walk then across a spectacular section along a ridge to reach the top of Monte Stivo (2050m). The panoramic views overlooking Lake Garda, the Brenta Dolomites, the Valley of Lakes and the Adige Valley are amazing! Heading down the opposite side in just 10 mins you will reach Rifugio (Mountain hut) Marchetti on Monte Stivo (2009m) for a pleasant break and for lunch. In the afternoon, the descent along a path which runs along a ridge will provide for fun, winding among the dwarf pine trees to the meadows of Mandrie Alte (1760m). You return to Malga Campo going down along a pleasant path under the beech trees.
