1/2 Day

Apr - Jun, Oct, Nov


Description

I invite you to a beautiful half day hike along the coast of the largest lake in Italy. In the north of the country we find the famous Lake Garda, perfect for a hiking adventure.

Rocca di Manerba, the Manerba Fortress, is a huge highlight of this trip. Indeed, it forms a natural balcony over Lake Garda. This allows for incredible views.

The hike will take place at sunset in order to enjoy the views with the best colours. During this trip, we also have a wine and local products tasting. We will stop for this at the summit of the Fortress. I will organize this delicious tasting. When in Italy, eating and drinking is always part of the experience!

The path goes through some remote spots of the Parco Archeologico e Naturalistico della Rocca di Manerba. We start at the foot of the cliff to then continue between the small harbour of Dusano and Punta San Fermo. This route ends on top of the famous Rocca.

This is an easy hike, suitable for families. It will take 3 hours and in total we climb up 150m. During the afternoon we will walk 6km.

I really like this hike because:
– It's in an interesting archaeological and natural park,
– There are amazing passages under the cliffs of the fortress,
– There are great views of Lake Garda South and gentle moraine hills.

If you are looking for a more demanding hike in the area, I also offer this Hike to Mount Pizzocolo in Lake Garda. Check it out!

Matteo

Mountain Leader

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".

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.
