Description

Join me on a beautiful day outdoors to the summit of Monte Altissimo (2,053m), Italy. Considered the Botanical Garden of Europe, this stunning mountain is located on the Monte Baldo chain and makes a perfect location for an easy hike. Get ready to enjoy outstanding views of Lake Garda.

Our trip begins with a 45-minute ride to Prati di Nago (1,560m), where our hiking route starts. We will be following the northern slope to Monte Altissimo, which covers 9 kilometers of pastures, alpine meadows and breathtaking landscapes.

First, we’ll be surrounded by a forest. Then, we’ll enter the Val del Parol, which leads to a valley filled with lilies, gentians and orchids. We might even spot marmots and chamois. The path slowly turns into an area of geological interest with limestone and fossils. After, we’ll stop at the Damiano Chiesa refuge for lunch, which is only 10 minutes away from our destination. The summit of Monte Altissimo offers a spectacular view of Lake Garda, perfect for photos. We’ll descend through the pine and rhododendron path 601.

This is a beautiful hike and a perfect cool alternative for the hot days. Book your trip now and let me guide you on this fantastic adventure.

About the guide

Certified mountain and ski guide and is directing since 15 years the Mountain School Mmove (former Friends of Arco). In the past, his passion had driven him for weeks to the solitude of the Alps, of Patagonia, or of the icy heights of the Karakorum to climb famous walls and peaks and open up new routes.

Today his priorities have moved. He wants to share his enthusiasm for the mountains - while working with his guests and in his spare time with his sons, as his father has once done with him. Mauro Girardi is very proud on its enthusiastic and highly qualified team of local Mountain-and Ski Guides, Hiking Guides and office employees. Mmove is not just a mountain school, but is a steadily growing circle of friends, who would like to realize great experiences. We like to Mmove it !!

Mmove is the only mountain school in the Alto Garda region with a guaranteed weekly program and activities for all tastes and the whole family.

The team is formed by 8 IFMGA/UIAGM Guides, so if Mauro is not available, one of the other highly qualified members of the team will be the guide.

This was a good trip. I joined with my 7y/o daughter who has no climbing experience. She had a good time. Although I am not sure how to change this, from my personal perspective, the trip would have been even better if there would also be a bigger challenge for adults.

My son and I were planning a trip to climb in Arvo, Italy and wanted a good start to our trip so we booked a guide with Explore-share.com, and it was the best thing we did. Lupe and the staff handled every inquire we had, were really professional then ended up hooking us up with MMove based in Arco. We booked a private guide for 3 days of rock climbing and we boosted our grades in those days. Our guide Matteo was bloody awesome, amazing guide who just gets that little bit more out of your. Our grades jumped thanks to Matteo. Day 1 was sport climbing to check what we could do, single pitches and going hard. The afternoon was a multi pitch. Then for day 2 and 3 we pumped out multi pitch after multi pitch. Best 3 days of climbing in a long time. My Son went from grade 15/16 to leading 23's. This 3 days started our trip and gave us the confidence to go on climbing for another 2 weeks. Thanks guys for an amazing wicked time We will be back soon
