Ponale Road

Spend an incredible half day with your family hiking the iconic Ponale Road in Italy with Mauro, a local IFMGA-certified mountain guide.



1/2 Day

Apr - Oct


* Discover the history and natural beauty of Ponale Road.

* Enjoy stunning views of Lake Garda.

* This is a trip for everyone, so bring your whole family!


Ponale Road, in Italy, is a beautiful and easy path full of history and nature. Bring your whole family to spend a different day outdoors and enjoy a wonderful experience.

Ponale Road is one of the most iconic paths in Europe. Closed to cars and motorcycles, it offers one of the best views of the Alto Garda for cyclists and hikers. The road is bound by high vertical walls with an incredible view of the vegetation of the area and of Lake Garda. It bridges Riva del Garda and the Valle di Ledro.

Along the way, we’ll find traces of history. For example, the ancient Riva del Garda aqueduct and Tagliata del Ponale, a fortification of World War I with stairs and tunnels.

At the end of the road, we’ll take a relaxing stop at a small bar that features breathtaking views of the lake. We’ll cross the Ponale stream to reach the Pregasina lookout spot, and return following the same road.

So, are you ready for a beautiful experience? Then send your request, pack your bags and get ready to bring home the best stories.

If you are looking for more adventures to enjoy the stunning Lake Garda, check out the hiking trips I offer to Monte Stivo (2,050m) and Rifugio Marchetti or from Nago to Monte Corno.

Mountain 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.

What people are saying about Mauro



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.



Gabriel was an excelent guide!! Very friendly, helpfull, calm and relax guide! We really enjoyed the trip. We started with a more easy route on day one to measure our level. On day two and three the difficulty was gradually increased acoording to our skills.



We as a team of Base lifestyle had a fantastic day under your guidance. The 3 guides are professional and very helpful. And what is also important to experience a beautiful day, lots of humor and many smiling faces. We are grateful to you for the successful day. Next year again, see you then. Greetings, Jan-Dirk



Hi. According to your recommendation, we canceled the family ferrta ( too hot for 5 years old girl) Please let me know what about the refund Thank



Matteo was Awesome. My family had a wonderful day trekking and exploring the beautiful country! Wish we were spending more time In The area so we could spend another day exploring with you!
