In the region of Arco Lake Garda there are many via ferratas which are accessible in short time from the villages in the Trentino Italy province. Some of the via ferratas are following the paths of WW 1 and are suitable for beginners. The program includes one day rock climbing and two days practice on the via ferratas around Lake Garda.
The area of Lake Garda Trentino in Italy is the rock climber' s capital. Motivation for this success are the facts that the area is offering walls of up to 1.200 m altitude as well as rocks and boulders suitable for rock climbing courses. The limestone' s structures allow to perform safely and elegantly all types of techniques ...
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.

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.
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.
