The best excursions

Riva del Garda to be discovered

The zone of Garda Trentino offers a dense bouquet of possibilities for those passionate about rock climbing, thanks to the presence of over 2000 equipped routes. Between the lake and the surrounding mountains in fact, panoramic routes wind to the summits of the Garda territory: authentic natural gymnasiums that have made it famous throughout the whole of Europe. They pass through woods and come face to face with exceptional views with historical and artistic testimonies such as, for example, the forts of Monte Brione and Tagliata del Ponale, an exceptional system of fortified tunnels consisting of a complex of corridors and trenches excavated in the period 1914/1918.

Forts of Monte Brione
