How to reach Lake Garda

MAP LAKE GARDA ITALY The Lago di Garda is located near the airports of Milan Bergamo Verona and Venice. To get here 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 Alps. To the South there is the Po Valley to the North the mountain chain of the Pasubio Mountains. Our action zone is situated in the Northern part of the 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 routes. The lower walls of limestone are our territory for for all types of courses. In the Northern part there are many via ferrata routes on the paths of the World War I. The center of the Brenta Group (Madonna di Campiglio) is only 75 km away from Arco. In this area there are the most beautiful and long routes in the area called Vie ferrate Bocchette del Brenta.

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]

About Lake Garda in the Italian Alps

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.

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 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.
