On Lake Garda, spring comes earlier!

Here are some ideas to experience the first sunny days

SPRING 2024 - How about going for an ice cream? The first of the season, when the days begin to warm up and the sun never seems to want to set. Where? On Lake Garda, of course.

Here, starting in April, you can breathe the Ora, the most famous wind in the Upper Garda, which brings you the scent of Mediterranean scrub and olive groves, trees that you would never expect to find at these latitudes. This is the secret of Garda: an area of Trentino with an exceptionally mild and temperate climate.

And if you want to breathe the crisp mountain air, you just need to move a little to see the spires of the Brenta Dolomites. At this point you can choose to hike or, if you feel like it, to give a try to a via ferrata.

There are many experiences to be lived in Trentino Garda in spring, when the days seem to never end, and you may wish to stay outdoors to greet the warm season. Here are some ideas on what to do...

Here are 5 suggestions for your springtime holiday by Lake Garda.


What a view from the Bastion!

Three exciting minutes: this is how long it takes you to reach the Venetian Bastion from the town of Riva del Garda and, maybe, treat yourself to an aperitif or a dinner with view. You can go up there via the new tilted panoramic lift… a three-minute ascent to enjoy a spectacular view of the lake.


Time for an aperitif

The sun setting gently behind the mountains, a cool breeze from the lake and the pleasure of being in good company. There is nothing more relaxing than an aperitif overlooking the lake, perhaps from the tiny port of Riva del Garda.


Art and nature, a stone’s throw from the lake

A twenty-minute car ride from Riva del Garda, a stone’s throw from Lake Ledro, there is a gallery of works of art whose roof is the Trentino sky. It is Ledro Land Art, a journey through 25 works of art, made with natural materials. And after this beautiful walk, stop for lunch at Restaurant Bosc del Meneghì to discover unusual flavours and ingredients, as unique as the place where they were grown.


 Stables, woods... and stilt houses

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.


Aerial Garda

After warming-up with walks, you are ready for something more challenging. In the Lake Garda area there are more than ten via ferratas within a few kilometres of each other: from easy ones to those for experts. An experience to try… if you don’t suffer from vertigo, of course.
