The ideal place to enjoy an active holiday or to relax between the lake and the mountains. A mild climate, the attractive Mediterranean environment that frames the lake, and the stunning beauty of the mountain backdrop are the key features of the Upper Garda Lake. The dominant force here is the wind capable of stirring up great emotions. Swept by a superb breeze (known as the ‘Ora’) the Trentino stretch of Lake Garda has become immensely popular with sailing and windsurfing enthusiasts. With a marina and some very fine yachting & sailing clubs it’s an ideal venue for international regattas and competitions. The lake also attracts canoeists and scuba-divers, while the bathing beaches that line the shore and the cruise and ferry services that criss-cross the water offer a relaxing alternative.
Those looking for an active holiday can find more opportunities in the interior, with trekking and mountain bike routes, and the Upper Garda area is also one of the preferred destinations for free-climbing lovers, the steep mountain walls overhanging the lake making for a spectacular practice range.
Famous destination for relax and spa cures and also world climbing capital and venue for world class competitions like World Rock Master. Arco has a dual personality, and you can have a quiet relaxing stay surrounded by a wide range of outdoor pursuits, including biking, sailing and windsurfing.
The Sailing Club is placed near the river Sarca. Is a perfect spot for sailors since 1983. Circolo Vela Arco is the new concept of sailing centre, focusing on useful services for athletes and coaches.
