What to do on Monte Baldo

Table of Contents:

Lake Garda is a wonderful area for several reasons. One of these is that it is a varied territory, where the lake meets mountains and hills, and the natural landscapes that can be admired are unique.

In particular, in the area between the provinces of Verona and Trento, there is Monte Baldo, also known as the ‘Botanical Garden of Europe’ for the extraordinary diversity of flora it hosts.

Its highest peak, the Valdritta peak, reaches a height of 2,218 metres and the mountain is part of the Pre-Alps chain. The bond between this mountain and its inhabitants is extremely deep and the area in which it is located makes its climate very varied.

Trekking and Excursions on Mount Baldo

For those who love to be outdoors in contact with nature and enjoy activities such as trekking, mountain biking, horse riding, and climbing, Mount Baldo is undoubtedly the ideal destination.

There are many paths on Mount Baldo that allow you to explore the area on foot or by bike, starting from the lake and reaching the highest peaks on your own or with organised excursions.

Those who, on the other hand, prefer to reach the top without too much effort can take the Malcesine – Monte Baldo cable car, which reaches an altitude of about 1,800 metres and provides a 360-degree view of the breathtaking panorama of Lake Garda.

For those who want to explore Mount Baldo through an unforgettable experience in close contact with nature, one suggestion is to go horseback riding. There are numerous stables in the area that organise rides along the paths of the mountain to spend a different day admiring the natural beauty of the place.

Monte Baldo is also pure adrenalin; there is no shortage of activities such as climbing via ferrata and paragliding, which for the bravest are the best way to admire the landscape.

Finally, when the peaks are covered in snow in winter, there is also fun for all winter sports enthusiasts thanks to the various equipped ski and snowboard slopes.

Those who enjoy walking, on the other hand, can find numerous paths that allow them to explore Monte Baldo by snowshoeing.

Eating on Monte Baldo

After so much physical activity, it is good to recharge one’s batteries, and for those who want to taste excellent local dishes, there are many refuges and ‘malghe’ (shepherd’s huts) to be found on Monte Baldo. A packed lunch can instead be a valid alternative for those who prefer to rest while remaining immersed in nature. Speaking of local food, we recommend this interesting food and wine experience: the tour and tasting of Organic Mountain Wines. On a terrace with a breathtaking view of Lake Garda, you will discover the organic method in the mountains and then enjoy a platter of local cold cuts and cheeses, and other delicacies accompanied by four types of wine. In short, for those who are at Lake Garda and decide to visit Monte Baldo, there are numerous activities for all tastes, so… backpack on your shoulders and off you go!
