Active holiday at Lake Garda

Sporting activities around the lake

The Lake Garda is much more than just a lake in northern Italy. It offers an abundance of sports activities, and few areas in Italy offer quite as many cultural opportunities. You can practise popular water sports such as sailing, surfing and diving, as well as sports like golf, horseback riding, mountain biking, paragliding and hiking. Tennis players, anglers and motorboat captains also find perfect conditions here. After a hard day of sport you can make a short visit to the nearby cities of Verona, Brescia and Trento to enjoy a more cultural programme.


Water sports paradise Lake Garda

Not least because of its size, Lake Garda is a true paradise for water sports. Windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing and swimming are obviously the most popular and best-known water sports. Less known but very attractive are dives to the sunken treasures of the lake. Motorboats can also roam about on Italy’s largest lake. Only the area in the north of the lake is closed to motorboats and is the territory of sailors and surfers. Many schools offer beginners a chance to sample and learn individual sports. Action and a lot of fun are guaranteed.


Sporty around Lake Garda

All who prefer the cooling waters of the lake more for swimming will also find plenty of opportunities for sports outside the water. Riding and trekking tours are offered as well as mountain biking and canyoning, rafting and kayaking trips. Of course, tennis players and golfers will also find plenty of courts and courses. The hilly west bank in particular offers good starting points for paragliders who want to enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of Lake Garda from the air.

Lake Garda thus offers a truly comprehensive range of sporting activities for young and old. The nearby cities of Verona, Trento and Brescia attract culture lovers with their many attractions and cultural highlights.
