I would like to invite you to discover one of the most beautiful spots in Lake Garda. Join me on this via ferrata and spend 1 day exploring the Sarca Valley.

Situated in northern Italy, Lake Garda is the largest lake in the country and one of the most popular destinations among tourists. We’ll go to Sarca Valley, an enchanted area surrounded by the Garda Mountain limestone peaks. Due to the incredible climate conditions and breathtaking views in this area, it’s the perfect place to enjoy different types of sportive activities.

Please, keep in mind that this program is for participants with previous via ferrata experience. In addition, it’s very important to have a good level of fitness and technical abilities.

About the Guide


I'm deeply in love with the mountain and its free spaces, it's rock and it's peopleand its silence. I live in the Rendena Valley, between the granite's mountain of Adamello Presanella, and the awesome Brenta Dolomites.

What People are Saying about Giorgio Paoli


Great ferrata, knowledgeable and friendly guide

Alison Jaworski
Great route, great guide, a perfect introduction to the Dolomites and to Via Ferrata. Giorgio is super friendly and approachable, nice company for the day, and a well qualified outdoor guide. If you are new to climbing on rocks, or not very experienced with long hikes on tough, exposed terrain, then you will find this a big adventure, but totally doable. If you are experienced and fit on rocks and hikes, then you will still find this a very satisfying & fun day in the mountains. Thanks Giorgio!
