Alpine School Arco Lake Garda Dolomites
mountaineering hiking trekking canyoning courses
In the region of Arco there are many via ferratas which are accessible in short time from the villages in the Trentino province. Some of the routes 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 vie ferrate.
The variety of colors, the shapes of the limestone rocks and walls are unique in the world. Pinnacles and amazing walls alternate with colorful green valleys full of forests, meadows, torrents and canyons with huge waterfalls. The layer conformation of the rocks permits the access to the many ledges they cut the big walls transversally. On these ledges run the Vie ferrate delle Bocchette, from one pass to another and from lodge to lodge, across the entire Brenta Group.
All activities of our mountain guides School Arco
Trentino is the door to the great Dolomites and also the headquarters of our Alpine School Arco Trentino. The area of Lake Garda and the Brenta Group offer an ideal terrain for our activities like rock climbing, canyoning, hiking and courses of all kinds practically the entire year. [VIEW LARGE MAP]
When you are travelling to the South, this is 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
heading north. The amazing intense blue of the Lake 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 Lago di Garda, mountain biking, trekking 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 region. Lake Garda represents all of that: a world
where different flavors of food and a big number of hotels are offering all types of accommodation in
Trentino style which means clean, traditionally comfortable and nice as well as reasonably priced.
The activity of Alpine School Arco is very various: hiking, trekking, canyoning 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 equipped spots in the Lake Garda area and many streams suitable for canyoning. Our mountain guides are born here and have fun to accompany you on every trip.
A world of green valleys, huge polychrome walls and pillars make it seem impossible that only 200 million years ago the Dolomites 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 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 have been the kingdom of our Mountaineering School. The Brenta Group are appropriate for each type of mountaineering activity like hiking from lodge to lodge or hut to hut, via ferrata trips and canyoning. On the more than 1000 m high walls, generations of alpinists have climbed thousands of adventurous rock climbing itineraries. The Brenta Group are only 70 km away from here. Therefore our favorite location for via ferrata courses and trips are on the famous 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 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 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.
