Out in the open, adrenaline rush, and sheer views over Lake Garda
Via ferrata Sentiero dei Contrabbandieri (The Smugglers’ Trail) at Lake Garda is a path cut into the rock a hundred feet above sea level that occasionally disappears and requires short but exciting climbs. It is roped up on ledges by belaying with pitons in the rock.
On the Smugglers’ Trail, you alternate between splits to overcome exposed passages, suspended traverses, and less challenging sections. This trail overlooking the Lake will impress you with its wild beauty.
The trail is very exposed and unequipped; it is suitable only for those with experience or if accompanied by a Mountain Guide. Caution, steady feet, and no fear of heights are required.
This activity is not suitable for children.
Who is your guide
Nice to meet you, I’m Mauro, International Alpine Guide UIAGM. I live in Arco since 2001 and in that very year I opened my Alpinism school Mmove (former Friends of Arco). For several years I’ve been living amazing adventures from the Alps to Patagonia, till the high peaks of Karakorum, following or opening new routes on these wild peaks. My goal now is to share my enthusiasm for the mountain with my guests.
I’m very proud of all my collaborators and my high qualified local Alpine Guides. Mmove is not just an Alpinism School but also a bunch of friends that wants to give you great experiences. We like to Mmove it!
