Discover what to do and see during your holiday in Riva del Garda.
Beauty, sport, excitement: our region has so much to offer, whether you are a keen sportsman or a lover of beautiful things.
The possibilities, in fact, are numerous. We would like to offer you some suggestions to experience the magic of Lake Garda at its best.
If on holiday, you would like to enjoy relaxation in Riva del Garda you are in the right place. There are two beaches, the Sabbioni beach and the Pini beach. The beaches are interspersed with gravel and green lawns and lapped by the water of the lake. Sabbioni beach also features a play area for children, as well as bars, restaurants, restrooms and more. Pini beach is ideally suited for windsurfing.
If you love cycling, you are in one of Europe's most popular destinations for this sport. In fact, there are numerous itineraries to discover the natural beauty of the lake and the Trentino peaks from a different perspective. In the saddle of a mountain bike or a pedal-assisted bicycle, why not?
Trekking and Climbing
If you enjoy life in the open air and like the idea of walking along small roads through the green woods and the blue lake, you are in the right place. In fact, our territory offers many possibilities for excursions of different types and degrees of difficulty. There are countless itineraries to be covered alone or in the company of expert guides, through the woods and along the lake, coming across extraordinary scenery and paths with historical records.
If you love rockclimbing, on the other hand, between the lake and the mountain there is a network of trails and natural boulders, set in exceptional scenery. This is a real Arena: there are more than 1000 walls equipped for sport climbing, for the most expert climbers, but also for children and families. All routes are equipped and periodically checked to guarantee maximum safety.
Private excursions by motorboat
Motorboat tours allow you to explore the lake in an exclusive manner and to view and approach otherwise inaccessible parts of the lake.
How about a beautiful trip at sunset including a visit to a cave with a waterfall? You can also add an aperitif on the boat, a unique and evocative experience.
If you wish, you can then stop for dinner in one of the restaurants with a view of the lakethat we recommend - there is something for every palate.
Gabriele, the captain, can offer customised tours: half-day, full-day, even with lunch included in places like Limone, Malcesine, Punta San Virgilio, Castelletto di Brenzone.
There are plenty of different options.
An exclusive tour on the lake (each trip is personal - the motorboat accommodates a maximum of 6 people) is really very convenient: the motorboat docks directly at Ponto S. Nicolò, in front of the hotel!
Our reception desk will organise the personalised tour or suggest, along with the Captain, the best day and what to visit.
We are located on the shores of Lake Garda and it goes without saying that there are many possibilities for water sports. From windsurfing and sailing to canyoning and SUP you can really indulge yourself.
Constant winds of varying intensity - such as the Ora between 10 and 25 knots, and the Pelèr up to 30 knots - make every day the perfect day for exciting windsurfing or sailing trips. The waves are never excessive, which is great for the enthusiasts, but also for beginners and less experienced surfers.
The northern shore of Lake Garda is recognised as an open-air sailing gym, as well as one of the best race courses in the world. Here, gliding and turning are always successful, also thanks to the many quality services offered, such as schools and rentals of the highest level and expertise.
It is also possible to go scuba diving in the lake: try this experience too!
Visits to local villages
The Garda Trentino area is a place of beauty and charm. On the shores of the lake, there are villages and palaces that are well worth discovering. A must-see is the village of Canale di Tenno, listed among the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy, from which you can admire both the magnificence of the lake and the surrounding mountains.
Also not to be missed are the medieval village Frapporta, with its castle, and the village Rango, also among the Most Beautiful Villages in Italy, which hosts one of the best known and most distinctive Christmas markets in Trentino.
What about autumn and winter?
Even the coldest seasons can offer wonderful moments by Lake Garda. In fact, Garda Trentino enjoys the perfect climate for hiking and trekkingin winter, for immersing oneself in the beauty of the woods and the charm of the snowy peaks.
Even food and wine can offer unexpected pleasures, especially in the seasons when you feel most like snuggling up with a glass of wine and enjoying hearty dishes.
Typical products, Garda wines and lake fish are delicacies not to be missed. Taste the rustic flavour of carne salada, a sip of Cabernet or Merlot in one of the many restaurants in the area.
It will certainly be an extraordinary experience.
