5 Lake Garda adventures you cannot miss

I spent a week exploring Lake Garda, sampling the best it has to offer in outdoor activities.

And my trip with Canvas Holidays didn’t disappoint.

Here are my top five adventures you cannot miss.

  1. Climbing Monte Baldo

This imposing ridge of mountains on the eastern shoreline provides the most dramatic of backdrops to the glistening blue of Lake Garda. Craggy peaks topping 2,000-metres rise above lushly forested slopes, creating a wild and rugged landscape that feels a million miles from the crowded tourist hotspots. Take a ferry to Malcesine, ride the cable car to 1,760 metres and get exploring. Short walks with stunning views satisfy most – but for a real adventure wear your hiking boots and trek to the 2,218-metre summit of Cima Valdritta.
