Three circular routes that are divided in stages, along the slopes and ridges that form the “crown” of Italy’s largest lake.
The three paths of varying degrees of difficulty are located at different hights. The first two routes can be walked throughout the entire year, to discover the breathtaking views that the Garda Trentino can offer during the clear winter days, among holm oaks, olive groves and castles.
The third route is a real journey between land and sky along the watershed ridge that crowns the Alto Garda, from the cliffs of the lake to the mountain pasture land of Mount Stivo and Altissimo. A demanding tour of approximately one week, with a succession of ups and downs that goes from 90mt to 2100mt altitude difference.
All the emotions experienced will be crowned by the quiet magical nights spent in the mountain huts, enjoying the spectacular view of the lake at night, reflecting the lights of the coastal towns.
