The most popular pic of Lake Garda on Instagram? Most likely it was taken from Punta Larici, an incredible lookout point overlooking the western shore of the lake.
The hike to Punta Larici is one of the most beloved of Garda Trentino, especially in the last few years. The view enjoyed from up there is indeed incredible!
Starting from Pregasina, a small village perched on the mountain wall overlooking Lake Garda, Punta Larici can be reached in just over an hour. But be careful! The path to Punta Larici SAT 422A "Senter de la Costa" is classified as EE, or for expert hikers, as it runs along the edge of the rocky wall and has several exposed stretches, some of which are equipped with a metal cord.
This path largely retraces the route created during the Great War at the service of the Italian positions located north of Punta Larici.
If you suffer from vertigo or you are not used to going to the mountains, this route is not for you: choose the hike in the woods (path SAT 422) or you can be accompanied by a guide.
Take a break at the "Regina Mundi": from here the view of the northern shore of Lake Garda is breathtaking!
The information on this chart is subject to inevitable variations, so this means that none of the indications are absolute. It is not entirely possible to avoid giving inexact or imprecise information, given how quickly environmental and weather conditions can change. For this reason we decline any responsibility for changes which the user may encounter. In any case, the hiker is advised to check the conditions of the places, environment and weather before setting out.
You need to be wearing the right clothing and take the proper gear when you go hiking in the mountains. Even on relatively short easy outings make sure to take all you need so you don't run into trouble if things take an unexpected turn, for example a storm blows up or you have a sudden drop in energy levels.
What should you take when you go on a hike?
Make sure you're wearing the right footwear for the trail and season. The going can get rough and rocky underfoot and a pair of hiking boots will protect you from sprains.
When wet, a grassy slope, rocky slab or steep trail can be dangerous unless you are wearing the proper footwear.
And finally... Don't forget to bring your camera! You'll need it to capture the stunning views you come across all over Garda Trentino. And if you like, you can share your memories with us at #GardaTrentino.
Pregasina can be reached from Riva del Garda following the signs for Valle di Ledro. After the tunnel, turn left following direction Pregasina.
