Wind / Racing: Northern Lake Garda is well known for being a “sailing” Mecca, mainly due to the thermally generated “Ora” wind that kicks in from the south usually around noon and builds up regularly to 4 BFT and occasionally up to 6 to 7 BFT.
The town of Arco is particularly attractive and has a wide range of shops, bars and interesting restaurants. For non-sailing friends there’s a lot to do on holiday including mountain biking, windsurfing, hill climbing, canyoning, beach activities (pebbly), canoeing etc.
