Description

I invite you to join me on a historical trek, a timeless journey through a place of amazing natural beauty and unique landscapes, which were the setting of Malga Zures, one of the most historically significant places of the World War I in the Trentino-Adige region, in northern Italy.

It is here where the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies faced each other a few hundred meters away. To reach our destination on this half-day trek, we will hike along the Austro-Hungarian front line, where former military posts now offer stunning views of Lake Garda.

The enchanting village of Nago in the northern region of Trentino-Alto Adige will be the starting point for our hike. From Nago, we can enjoy beautiful views of the north shore of Lake Garda.

This half-day hike takes us along part of the Peace Trail, an alpine hiking trail that covers over 520 kilometers, following many former military trails along the line of  the Italian-Austrian front during the First World War.

After crossing the historic center of Nago we head towards the vineyards surrounding it. Accompanied by the lake breezes, we gradually walk along the historical trail nº 601. We will visit the galleries, the barracks, the gun emplacements and the trenches which formed the Austro-Hungarian defensive line.

Then we reach Malga Zures, today a place fullo of sun, but which hosted one of the bloodiest battles in the area during the First World War, in 1915. It is possible to visit the small military cemetery nearby, which remained as a witness of the bloody battles.

Malga Zures was one of the most important places for the Austrian defensive line in the Alto Garda sector. Given its strategic position, the Austrians fortified it in a particular way. We will see artifacts from the Malga Zures, barracks, tunnels, gun emplacements and Austro-Hungarian trenches of Segrom, along with many beautiful viewpoints over Lake Garda.

We make a brief stop before setting off on our way back to the valley, this time along an ancient multe path. From there, we are able to enjoy the view of the stunning cliffs of Nago. Along this hike we will cover in total 7,5 kilometers, with a height difference of only 65 meters.

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
