Vie ferrate on Garda Lake

Trentino, Italy

Garda Trentino  Verified partner  Explorers Choice 
Author of this page
In addition to hikers, mountain bikers and sport climbers, via ferrata climbers have also discovered Lake Garda as a fantastic sport region. Around Riva del Garda on the northern shore of the lake are some of the oldest and most classic climbs in the Alps. As early as during the First World War, some climbing passages were laid out as supply routes for the troops.

You can immerse yourself in this time on an exciting and promising tour of the Cima Rocca. Right next door, however, you can climb the longest ladders in the southern Alpine region to the top of the Cima S.A.T. climb. Those who have a lot of experience on the via ferrata and are in good physical condition can try their hand at Che Guevara, a 1400 m long show of strength on Monte Casale guarantees beads of sweat on their foreheads. Or how about a climb through a narrow gorge of the Rio Sallagoni? For fans of exposed rocky paths, steep iron ladders and exciting climbing on wire rope, there is a lot to experience on Lake Garda!

Via Ferrata Fausto Susatti - Cima Capi by Cameron

Super fun! We did it with our three daughters and they had a blast. I think the approach hike was harder than the via Ferrata itself, but we really enjoyed it. Great exposure!
