Let me invite you on a new adventure for more outstanding views of Lake Garda, Italy. We’ll hike to the top of the stunning Monte Stivo and continue to Rifugio Marchetti on an incredible day you’ll love.

This circular route will take us through some spectacular views of the surrounding valleys, the Brenta Dolomites, the Valle dei Laghi, the Valle dell’Adige and the magical turquoise Lake Garda. It is an easy path through the Italian Pre-Alps that will provide you with a relaxing experience outdoors. It will take us, approximately, 6 hours to complete.

Our hiking path begins and ends at Malga Campo. First, we’ll hike through forests, pastures, and ridges to reach the Cima del Monte Stivo, located at 2,050 meters above sea level. There, the panoramic views are fantastic! We’ll then continue to the Rifugio Marchetti, for a relaxing lunch and break. We’ll descend through the ridge path, pines and pasture of High herds to reach our starting point.

So send your request and follow me on an incredible hike through this beautiful Alpine valley.

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!
