Il Sentiero Alpinistico dei Contrabbandieri

A breathtaking path over Lake Garda

A unique experience in the Lake Garda area. For some stretches it recalls the “Via delle Bocchette” in the “Brenta” Dolomites. Basically, it is a long horizontal ledge overlooking Lake Garda, sometimes less than a meter narrow.

The guide belays  the route using the rope and quickdraws . In some areas the ledge disappears leaving spectacular traverses protected with the metal cable.
