Climbing 

If you are looking for a bit of adventure, we recommend climbing the magnificent cliffs around Lake Garda. If you are craving for relaxation instead, there’s nothing better than a walk around the lake. At Easter, don’t miss Chocomusic in Riva del Garda, a food festival with tastings, cooking demonstrations, and workshops for everyone.

In bici - Lago di Molveno

Molveno MTB tours

If your little ones are not very keen on walking, try a MTB tour on the Altopiano della Paganella, a fantastic way to get out and about at a comfortable pace for everyone. Particularly scenic are the bike tracks around Lake Molveno and Lake Nembia. If you get a bit peckish, stop at La Baita "Fortini di Napoleone" for refreshments.

Canoeing

Canoeing 

There’s no better way to discover those hidden spots you can’t reach by foot, those deserted wild little coves: canoeing on Lake Ledro is a beautiful activity to do with your children. It’s easy, with no fuss, just hire a canoe and paddle your way slowly into nature. Go before 11 am and after 5 pm, when it’s less windy and the water is calmer.

Bike in Valsugana

Bike in Valsugana

Make the most of the sunny days and hop on your bike. Indeed, in the Valsugana valley there’s an 80-km cycle track that follows the course of the Brenta river along mostly flat land. Pedal your way past blossoming apple orchards and, when you need a break, stop off for a bite to eat and refreshments at any one of the many “Bici Grills” along the way. 

Delicious picnics

Delicious picnics

 Take a break from the action and sit down on the grassy shores of Lake Serraia on Piné Highland. Dessert is already taken care of: taste the delicious ice-cream at Agrigelateria, made only with locally sourced ingredients. Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are in fact grown in the local fields, picked daily and served fresh on ice-cream.

A little break after so many adventures
