Top views of Lake Garda and typical Trentino dishes: San Pietro mountain hut is the ideal destination for bikers and hikers looking for relaxation in the green

A balcony with unforgettable views of Lake Garda, accessible on foot or by bike, just a few minutes from Lake Tenno. Sport and relaxation for everyone in a family atmosphere with typical Trentino cuisine.

In short, this is San Pietro mountain hut, opened in the 1930s by the Riva del Garda section of the SAT - Association of Trentino Mountaineers, at the point where an old hermitage was located. Next to the mountain hut is the small, still consecrated church of St. Peter, after which the hut is named.

Since its opening, the hut has been one of the most popular hiking destinations in Garda Trentino, also thanks to its accessibility. It is indeed possible to arrive by car about 15 minutes on foot from the hut, which is even accessible with a hiking stroller.

The hut is open all year round. However, it is advisable to contact the manager to inquire about the actual opening, especially out of season.
