The best things to do at Lake Garda
From picnics on the grass to aperitifs by the lake: 6 suggestions for your holiday
SPRING / SUMMER 2020 - La dolce vita: there is no better way to describe life by Lake Garda in spring. Smell the fragrance of olives and lemons in the air as you stroll along the shores of the lake, feeling the water gently splash your face and the breeze ruffle your hair.
Lake Garda is the ideal place to spend a long spring weekend. In fact, there is, no shortage of activities to choose from: a picnic in nature, an aperitif on the beach, or a day at a wellness centre. If you prefer to spend your days outdoors, why not try windsurfing, hop on your bicycle to explore the cycle path along the lake, or even hike the breath-taking Busatte-Tempesta trail?
Here are 6 suggestions for your springtime holiday by Lake Garda.
Enjoy the year’s first rays of sunshine to the fullest with a picnic consisting of local, “0 km” products, immersed in nature and enjoying the Mediterranean microclimate typical of Lake Garda. Choose the hillside for a picnic with a view, the beach for a more “active” picnic, or a site by the river for a more original setting.
Lake Garda Cycle Paths
If you’re looking for a high-energy day by the lake, leaving the concerns of everyday life behind while also keeping fit, we recommend a wholesome cycle. The cycle paths of Lake Garda are accessible to all, thanks to their gentle slopes, well maintained surfaces and clear, simple signposting.
Aperitifs by the lake
Overlooking the Porto di San Nicolò harbour in Riva del Garda, this venue is busy all day long: from pastries and cappuccinos as you enjoy breakfast with a view, to sparkling glasses of Trento DOC or craft beers as you admire the sun set on the horizon, sinking gradually until it disappears below the waters of the lake.
Lake Garda features two typical winds: the Pèler in the morning and the Ora in the afternoon. Lake Garda is a top destination for lovers of windsurfing, as well as the perfect spot for those who want to try it for the first time. Here, you can find the ideal conditions for the sport, the chance to hire equipment, and courses suitable for all levels.
A wellness centre just a stone's throw from the Lake, where you can spend a day relaxing completely with friends or family. This modern, fully equipped centre offers pools for personal well-being and beauty, including a salt bath and a pool especially for children.
The Busatte-Tempesta hiking trail
The absolutely unmissable Busatte-Tempesta hiking trail consists of a 4 km trek, taking in a spectacular iron staircase of 400 steps: a natural balcony over Lake Garda. You can do the hike during the day, returning on the shuttle bus that will bring you back to Busatte park.
