The little harbour in Torbole

Winter hikes at northern Lake Garda

Garda Trentino, thanks to its mild climate, is the ideal destination for hiking in winter. The days are shorter, it is true, but on the other hand the pleasant temperature and the clear air offer the ideal conditions to enjoy the trails and the views on Lake Garda.

The Garda Trek Low and Medium Loops are ideal for those who enjoy multi-day walks and itineraries, but there are also many possibilities for those looking for day-hikes. In this selection you will find some suggestions for choosing your next winter hiking at lake Garda.
