friends in a warm and cozy mountain inn or in a mountain lodge situated
in a lonesome valley in the Italian Dolomites which is easily accessible

special and different weekend. This type of trekking trip at Lake Garda

HIGHLIGHTS ON ROCK CLIMBING, HIKING, VIA FERRRATA AND TREKKING BY
MOUNTAIN GUIDES SCHOOL ARCO LAKE GARDADOLOMITES ALPS TRENTINO ITALY
Our highlights regarding trekking hiking via ferrata at Lake Garda or in the Dolomites Italy 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.
With our proposal of the
Brenta Trek Italy
, we would like to offer a 5 days trekking trip from lodge to lodge crossing from the
South to the North, the entire Italian Brenta Dolomites
Group, with overnight stay in the mountain
, 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 at Lake Garda Italy
is destined for people who love trekking or 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 Italy
The offer of the mountaineering School Lake Garda consists of the Crossing of Brenta Dolomites Italy
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 Dolomites 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 Dolomites Italy Group.
Overnight stay in the mountain lodges
The top of Marmolada Dolomites
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 Dolomites. 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.
Every time we are fascinated by the views, wildness and solitude of this territory. On Kalymnos Island
we can hike many hours meeting only goats or take a swim in a solitary bay. The program of
our Trekking hiking School Arco lake Garda Italy consists of five days hiking 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
come true, not only in Greece!
alpine base course
is destined for people who love hiking, trekking and 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 Italy and following we move for three days
to the Marmolada Dolomites
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 of
Italy. Overnight stay in the mountain lodges.
The Brenta Dolomites
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
in the Brenta Dolomites. 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.
