Kayaking, climbing and swimming in Lake Garda

Kayaking, climbing and swimming in Lake Garda | Italy

Join Mauro, an IFMGA certified guide, in a truly different climbing experience. Reach by canoe the steep cliffs that rise out of Lake Garda, climb up till you fall down and go swimming.


1/2 Day

Jun - Sep



What could be better after a hard climbing than to refresh in clear water? I propose you a truly different climbing experience.

By kayak, we will reach the steep cliffs that rise out Lake Garda, just behind the Riva. Then, with a bathing suit as the only equipment, we will climb up as high as as possible… and then just fall into the water. We will then swim around the pristine waters of this warm and beautiful lake. This trip is a truly different climbing experience, and staying fresh is a guarantee!

At over 50 miles long, Lake Garda is Italy’s largest lake. This popular holiday location in northern Italy is ideal to explore all outdoor sports alone, with friends and family.

I will take people of all ages with some previous climbing experience. The trip takes about 4 hours. We leave every Friday at 8.30 AM from Arco.

For sure you will have lots of fun! Do not hesitate to contact me and book a spot!

About the guide

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!
