Snowshoeing on Monte Stivo
Below you lies a stretch of lake bathed on both sides by steep mountains and you couldn’t be blamed for thinking of a Norwegian fjord!
Indeed, this route offers some unique characteristics: bear in mind that the south-west slopes of Monte Stivo are something of a natural terrace overlooking Lake Garda and, from this vantage point, this body of water truly calls to mind the Scandinavian coastline.
It’s not a difficult climb and the panorama is definitely worth the effort. However, although it’s a very popular tourist destination it must not be underestimated, in the case of fog or low cloud cover orientation can become difficult.
