How to reach Lake Garda in Italy

MAP LAKE GARDA ITALY Lake Garda is located near the airports of Milan Bergamo Verona and Venice. To reach Lake Garda by train or car just head towards Verona and then in Northern direction to Rovereto. Our meeting points for our customers are: the train station in Rovereto - the highway exit Rovereto Sud - hotels in the Southern part of Trentino. Lake Garda is located in the central part of the Italian Alps. To the South there is the Po Valley to the North the mountain chain of the Dolomites. Our action zone is situated in the Northern part of Lake Garda famous for its abundance of rocky walls and mountains. The area has a very vast territory with high walls where it is possible to follow numerous itineraries of multi pitch rock climbing. The lower walls of limestone are our territory for rock climbing and via ferrata courses. In the Northern part of Lake Garda there are many via ferrata routes on the paths of the World War I. The center of the Brenta Dolomites (Madonna di Campiglio) is only 75 km away from Arco. In this area there are the most beautiful and long via ferrata routes in Italy called Via ferrata Bocchette del Brenta.

Lake Garda Trentino is the door to the great Dolomites and also the headquarters of our mountaineering School Arco Trentino. The area of Lake Garda and the Brenta Dolomites Group offer an ideal terrain for our activities like rock climbing, canyoning, trekking and courses of all kinds practically the entire year.

About Lake Garda in the Italian Alps

When you are travelling to the South, Lake Garda in Italy represents the first region with a Mediterranean climate and special and endemic flora. It makes us feel the last and unexpected breath of Mediterranean air before reaching the passes of the Italian Dolomites heading north. The amazing intense blue of Lake Garda seems to be touching the mountains and the olive branches are speaking with the wind while the lemons are maturing in the sun. The same atmosphere and natural beauty has become the ideal scenario for a vacation where you can relax and have fun at the same time: sailing and wind surfing on the waves of Lake Garda, mountain biking, trekking and rock climbing in the mountains or canyoning through exciting torrents are just some of the daily sports activities in a world where it is also easy to encounter history for example by visiting some of the many old castles in the Lake Garda region. Lake Garda Trentino Italy represents all of that: a world where different flavors of food and a big number of hotels around Lake Garda are offering all types of accommodation in Trentino style which means clean, traditionally comfortable and nice as well as reasonably priced.
The activity of mountaineering and trekking School Arco is very various: hiking, trekking and mountaineering: distance and difficulty at your choice - via ferrata trips and courses on the tracks of World War 1- multipitch rock climbing traditional routes on big walls up to 1200 m - rock climbing courses. We have more than 50 sports climbing spots in the Lake Garda Italy area. Our mountain guides are born here and have fun to accompany you on every hiking trekking or rock climbing trip.

About the Brenta and Marmolada Dolomites

A world of green valleys, huge polychrome walls and pillars make it seem impossible that only 200 million years ago the Dolomites Italy had been a flat ground under the Sea. The fossil layers created this multicolor quality of rocks when a trouble of the earth pushed up the Dolomites platform to their actual altitude of 3000 meters. The erosion of water and ice left behind the actual unique environment where people and bears can live together. For 30 years the Brenta and Marmolada Dolomites in Italy have been the kingdom of our Mountaineering and trekking School. The Brenta Dolomites are appropriate for each type of mountaineering activity like hiking, trekking from lodge to lodge or hut to hut, via ferrata trips. On the more than 1000 m high walls, generations of alpinists have climbed thousands of adventurous rock climbing itineraries. The Brenta Dolomites are only 70 km away from Lake Garda Italy. Therefore our favorite location for via ferrata courses and trips are on the famous via ferrata Bocchette del Brenta: a long trekking through the entire mountain group. New and interesting is the Brenta trek which is a wonderful hiking trip from lodge to lodge or hut to hut. The Marmolada Dolomites, also in the Trentino Italy province, is offering two different faces: on the South there is a large vertical wall on which there are a lot of very difficult multipitch routes up to 1200 meters length. On the North face of Marmolada Dolomites Italy there is a glacier famous as skiing area. The Marmolada glacier is very precious for our alpine base courses because it is only a 20 minute walk from the mountain lodge Pian dei Fiacconi and suitable for our lessons on glacier and ice.
