Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct


Join me in this memorable 1-day hike to the Mount Pizzocolo (1581 m), the most beautiful peak of Lake Garda. It sits in the southern section of the west Garda lakeside. Indeed, it's one of the best places in the area for a good hike.

This mount is part of the Garda Pre-Alps range. In the local dialect, Mount Pizzocolo is known as Pisocol, Gu or Serà.

Come and explore one of the most spectacular and beautiful spots of the Pre-Alps, around Brescia. In fact, this isolated peak offers impressive views. Not only will we enjoy the stunning panorama of Lake Garda, but also of the Apennines, the Adamello group, Mount Baldo and the Brenta Dolomites, Monte Rosa and the Venetian Lagoon. Indeed, it's an impressive list!

This hike is at the Gardone riviera in Lake Garda. During the day, we will hike 4:30 hours, ascending 700 m in total. We can also do it in the evening!

The highlights of this trip are:
– The great views over Lake Garda, it looks like a Norwegian fjord from the summit of Mount Pizzocolo
– A low altitude hiking (summit at 1500 m) that seems like high mountain environment.

You need to be a hiker with good training to join me in this adventure. And if you are looking for an all levels, family friendly hike in the area, check out this Hike and tasting at sunset at Lake Garda.

Does this program sound tempting? Then don't hesitate to contact me to start planning!

About the guide

I was born in the flat Po valley, but I have always loved the mountains and wide open spaces; my dreams come true in 2004, when I became a mountain leader.

Then in 2010 I became International Mountain Leader.

Now my job is in a Trekking company called "MilleMonti".

In all of my travels, I try to be true to the original spirit of curiosity and amazement that I've always felt when I am in the mountains and with this enthusiasm I lead the customers who travel with me.

I live in Italy, in Brescia, in the region of the great Italian lakes (Lake Garda, Lake Iseo, Lake Como). I like to make people discover this wonderful area, but also the most extraordinary places we could find in my homeland.

My destinations are Alps and Dolomites, as well as Italian islands, the Cinque Terre, the Gran Sasso and the National Park of Abruzzo.

If you meet me in the mountains, you can call me "Mammut".

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
