SPORTS ON LAKE GARDA

Water sports and more still: on Garda your holiday will

Surf the waves at sunrise, driven by the legendary Pelér, the strong morning wind, and go trekking at high altitudes in the afternoon, among the mountains and forests. Dedicate yourself to canyoning in the gorges carved out by the rocky mountain streams or relax on a nice trip on a sail boat, taking advantage of the afternoon breezes. Get on a mountain bike and go wild on the trails famous among the bikers from all over Europe and plunge yourself downhill along breathtaking paths. Go further along the mountains, chasing Icarus’ dream and flying through the clouds with a paraglider. If doing sports while being in contact with nature is call that you cannot resist, then Lake Garda in Lombardy is the perfect destination for you. The vast territory of the "Lake Garda - Lombardy" Consortium, from Limone to Sirmione is one of the few areas in Europe that offers such a wide array of choice for your sports vacations within a unique natural setting that extends from the lake’s expanse of water to 2000m high peaks.

For those in search of excitement, there is canyoning: walking, diving and lowering yourself into the ravines made by the streams with ropes is a unique experience. Then there are water sports: sailing, windsurfing, kite-surfing, scuba diving, canoeing. The lake, with its 370 square km and 158 linear km of coastline, is a unique environment for recreation and fun. It is no accident that the most famous race in the world was born here, which took place on the waterways: the Centomiglia. Even the inland is a large natural gym in the open. With the lake in the background, the hills and Benacensi mountains offer endless possibilities to do sports: hiking tours are offered daily for hiking lovers, many routes and paths specifically designed for lovers of Nordic walking and for fans of mountain biking, cycling in the green on bike paths and routes suitable for the whole family or vent your desire for thrills on the breathtaking downhill rides.
