1. Day: Welcome at Lake Garda
2. Day: Trekking: Tenno and Refuge San Pietro
Duration: 4 hours/ 12 kilometer
Elevation gain: 500 Mt
Start your tour in the north of Lake Garda with a trek in the mountains of Trentino! A round trip between villages hidden in the woods, mountain lakes and dream views.
You will arrive in Canale by bus, to visit the small medieval village and continue on foot along the slopes of Monte Misone until you reach the San Pietro Refuge (h 2:00 walk).
The initially rather steep path leads first through a mixed forest of beech trees, then gradually passes to the coniferous band, while the views become ever wider. You will arrive at the refuge, with a spectacular view of the lake, the plain of Riva del Garda with Monte Brione, and Monte Baldo in the background. Here you will have the opportunity to taste typical Trentino dishes.
After the break you will descend until you reach Lake Tenno, you will skirt it to admire its clear turquoise waters (h 2:00 walk). Arriving at the parking place, by bus you will go to visit the cave of the Varone Waterfall, a real geological rarity that was born about ten thousand years ago. You will be enthusiastic about it, and we recommend you to do the botanical path inside the park.
3. Day: Bike: The Hills of the Risorgimento
Duration: 9.30 – 16.30/ ca. 40 kilometre
Elevation gain: 250 Mt
Get on the saddle of a mountain bike or e-bike, pedal and take a leap into history!
You will depart from the south of Lake Garda, from Peschiera del Garda, to discover the Morainic Hills of the Lower Garda, characterized by gentle valleys, lush cultivation of vineyards and orchards, but above all famous for being the scene of battles during the Italian wars of Independence. You will get to know historic towns and villages such as Solferino, where you will stop on the Rocca for a packed lunch enjoying a beautiful view, Castellaro Lagusello and San Martino della Battaglia in a succession of historical, cultural and enogastronomic emotions.
You will discover the "Lugana" a white wine with unique colours and a fruity flavour. A route that on secondary roads with low traffic and short gradients will make you live and enjoy a truly relaxing unique day by bike.
4. Day: Boat: Isola del Garda and botanical park Andrè Heller
Let your legs rest ... today you will change your perspective, you will see the lake from the lake, always surrounded by nature!
The morning will be dedicated to visiting the magnificent Isola del Garda, the largest island on the lake located on the Brescia side. Arriving on the island by boat, you will be amazed at the sight of the extraordinary Venetian neo-Gothic style villa. A guide will accompany you to visit the Italian gardens full of luxuriant vegetation, local and exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers. If you are lucky, the owner Alberta Cavazza will be there to tell you the story of her family and of the island. To conclude, a welcome drink awaits you with the tasting of local wine and the tasting of their DOP Garda Bresciano olive oil on one of the terraces with an enchanting view of the lake.
You will board the boat to reach another pearl of the lake, Gardone Riviera, where a light lunch in front of the lake awaits you. After your coffee, you will walk to the renowned André Heller Botanical Garden. In a completely original path between Japanese gardens, streams, caves, water lilies, artificial lakes, rocky areas and Dolomite rocks, you will be able to admire over 3,000 different vegetative species from various climatic zones.
5. Day: Trekking: Monte Luppia and Punta San Vigilio
Duration: 3 hours/ 8 kilometers
Elevation gain: 450 Mt
Start your last trek in Torri del Benaco, a town on the Veronese shore where its Scaligero Castle stands out with its lemon house.
After a short stop in the village, you will leave on foot, along a stretch of the Bassa Via del Garda. The paths climb into the typical Mediterranean scrub and, among olive groves, shrub varieties and holm oaks, you will reach the top of Monte Luppia with its rock engravings, at 450mt. Going down, the view over the bay of Garda, with the landscape nuances and the colors of the lake, will truly surprise you, as the glimpse of the famous Punta di San Vigilio.
