EASY HIKING OR TREKKING TRIPS IN THE TRENTINO DOLOMITES ALPS ITALY

HIKING HUT TO HUT Pasubio Group presents the same Dolomite rock as the Brenta Group which explains its second name The little Dolomites. They are situated between Trentino and Veneto. On a clear day you can normally see the white beaches of Venice from some of the tops of the Pasubio mountain group. In this area used to run the border between Austria and Italy and this is also where the soldiers fought between 1916 to 1918. We can visit many remainders of forts, trenches and tunnels of WW1. The environment offers meadow and forests with easy paths suitable for hiking. The most difficult trekking follows the traces and trenches of WW1 on the ridges and ledges up to the Dolomites rock walls. The Pasubio Group is ca. 1 hr. by car from Lake Garda and is accessible from May to October.

DOLOMITES ALPS ITALY Brenta Dolomites Trentino Italy - It is amazing to think that these high peaks and walls only 300 million years ago have been the bottom of the Sea. The subsequent deposit layers of animal bones, sand and shells has created these multicolored rocks within millions of years. The Brenta mountains are not only big walls but also green forests, valleys and meadows where cows are grazing, torrents and high waterfalls. This is a wild environment where bears and the local population can coexist safely. The presence of many mountain lodges and huts makes the area very popular for walking from lodge to lodge or from hut to hut on the trips of the famous via ferrata trip Bocchette del Brenta.

ADAMELLO TREKKING Adamello glacier Italy - The Adamello National Park is the largest glacier in Italy and larger than the one of Mont Blanc. Unlike the Brenta-Dolomites Italy which are of sedimentary origin, the mountains in the Adamello Group have a volcanic background. The glaciers extend over large areas and the rock is composed of smooth, magnificent white granite plaques. The Italian and Austrian soldiers fought for three long winters on these rugged mountains. Sometimes the eternal ice releases soldiers bodies and their weapons. During our trekkings from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge we almost always find unexploded bombs and many remnants of the WWI. It is a prerequisite have a good physical condition as well as mountaineering experience, if you want to conquer these wild mountains. The duration of our routes from hut to hut or from lodge to lodge depends on weather conditions: fog, snow and crevasses may slow the march but the worst thing is the lack of preparation of the participants in our trekking and hiking trips.

HIGHLIGHTS ON ROCK CLIMBING HIKING WALKING VIA FERRRATA BY
MOUNTAIN GUIDES SCHOOL ARCO LAKE GARDA ALPS

Our highlights regarding outdoor activities at Lake Garda or in the Alps or on the Greek Island Kalymnos have not been chosen by our alpine mountain guides school but are the preferences of our customers in the 20 years of our activity. Please click on the image for a complete program of our trips and courses.

BRENTA TREK With our proposal of the Brenta Trek Italy, we would like to offer a 5 days walking trip from lodge to lodge crossing from the South to the North, the entire Brenta Dolomites Italy Group, with overnight stay in the mountain lodges, suitable for everybody. The participants only need to have a good physical condition and some experience in hiking trips in the mountains.

VIA FERRATA COURSE This via ferrata course at Lake Garda is destined for people who love mountain walks, and for whom who would like to try themselves in the vertical world in complete safety. The rock climbing experience of this day is very important for the performance of our via ferrata courses and trips. The next two days we will climb the most beautiful via ferratas in the Lake Garda area.

VIA FERRATA BRENTA DOLOMITES ITALY The offer of the mountaineering School Lake Garda consists of the Crossing of Brenta Group from North to South in five or three days with overnight stay in the alpine lodges. The layer conformation of the rocks in the Brenta mountains permits the access to the many ledges which are cutting the big walls transversely. On these ledges are running the via ferrata delle Bocchette, from one pass to another, across the entire Brenta Group. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges

MARMOLADA DOLOMITES The top of Marmolada is the famous and the via ferrata on the Western Crest is a dream of many mountaineers like the "Normal route" of Mont Blanc. The via ferrata on the crest of Marmolada is classified as difficult but as always the difficulty at high altitude depends on the environmental conditions which can vary extremely in the Alps. Obviously for this type of via ferrata trip it is necessary to have a good physical condition and sometimes even the use of the rope is necessary.

TREKKING EASY GREECE Every time we are fascinated by the views, wildness and solitude of this territory. On Kalymnos Island in Greece we can hike many hours meeting only goats or take a swim in a solitary bay. The program of our Alpine School Arco Lake Garda consists of five days walking on the Island and one day is destined for an easy rock climbing experience or rest. We sleep in the best hotel on the Island and we will choose the most traditional good restaurant. We will make possible the best vacation come true, not only in Greece!

ALPINE COURSE This alpine base course is destined for people who love via ferrata trips but would like to extend their knowledge in the rocks and on glaciers. The program of our mountaineering course consists of two days rock climbing in the crags near Lake Garda and following we move for three days to the Marmolada Alps. The teaching regards climbing techniques in every mountaineering situation, rope manouvres, rappelling and self rescue exercises on the rocks and glaciers in the Alps. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges.

DOLOMITES ALPS ITALY The Brenta Group is similar to the more famous Eastern Dolomites but the rock walls and pillars there are bigger, the environment harder and wilder therefore less touristic and more alpine. Through these multicolor fantastic walls runs the famous track of "Via ferrata Bocchette del Brenta" which is ideal to exercise our via ferrata courses and trips. This course is destined for people who have a little experience in high mountains or via ferrata or for very athletic and adventurous participants. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges.
