The municipal territory of Garda and Costermano sul Garda lends itself to short walks as well to more demanding hikes. You can do both on foot or by bicycle. The tours not only offer the possibility to understand and appreciate the lake for the historical villages and the landscape, but also for the nature to discover along trails through forests and areas with beautiful views.
Lake Garda is reflected in a variety of landscapes that make him a unique place: the upper part is squeezed between steep mountains and the lower part is surrounded by rolling green hills.
From the naturalistic point of view it is worth pointing out the richness and variety of vegetation: on the lake shores you will find the rare reeds, especially in the area of San Vigilio. In the range below 200 m you will find a Mediterranean vegetation with olive trees, vineyards, cypresses, oleanders, holm oaks and laurels. The next higher vegetation belt is characterized by oaks and ash trees and copies of hazelnut trees.
These species are associated with various perennials, such as: butcher’s broom, privet, juniper, rose hips and flowers, especially in areas with less dense undergrowth, such as: primroses, heather, strawberries but also various types of orchids.
These various vegetation belts provide natural habitats for fauna and micro-fauna, full of birds, amphibians and insects.
The proposed tours reveal a less familiar side of the lake but of great charm which certainly deserves to be explored.

We thought about a site where the main hiking trails could be listed together with walk paths and mountain-biking trails, that meander between coves with beautiful beaches and blooming landscapes between the green lush of the olive trees and the blue of the lake. An invitation for those who love sports in the open air to plunge in the nature of the Veneto side of Lake Garda and its rich hinterland: a multifaceted experience that is never allowed to become boring.
The vast and varied territory of the Riviera degli Olivi offers routes for all needs and for all levels. Paths that will make you discover natural jewels, historical villages that follow one another in breathtaking views, castles, coves, shores, hills and mountains where the impressive and uncontaminated nature reveals itself through trails and routes marked among the woods. Choose the trip that suits you most and discover a territory which is easy to fall in love with due to the sensations it can cause thanks to its perfumes, colours, the climate, the flavours of the wine and food tradition and the fascinating and unforgettable sunsets on the lake.
Everyone will have the possibility to take lovely walks t or cycle on our beautiful lakefront.
Thanks to the beauty of the landscape and to the welcome of hoteliers from the Garda area, it will always be a great experience!
