The most beautiful via ferratas on Lake Garda

Climbing and Dolce Vita almost the whole year round is possible on the perfectly secured trails with a short ascent and lake view at the northern Lake Garda. If there is still snow in the Alps, the season has already started here for a long time. The rocky mountains around Riva del Garda form an alpine region with a proud difference in altitude of 2,000 metres from the peaks to Lake Garda, which opens up to the south to the Mediterranean. The perfect place to enjoy life and practice climbing.
