The panoramic views: there are many and they make our territory famous.

Tour description

Walk to the North from the upper cableway station and once you get out of the fence, take the path going upward on the left. Here you’ll se one of the most scenic places in all this area.

Keep going to the North, then Nort-East, go past the ski lift poles of the beginners ski slope and walk straight ahead along the crest of Mount Baldo until you reach its northernmost point. The view over Norther Lake Garda will give you goosebumps.

panoramic point on monte baldo

You’ll pass next to the paragliding landing area where you’ll have plenty of chances to take nice pictures. This section is quite flat and it doesn’t present any difficulties.

Go down to the right on path n.651 that leads to a white road. This is section is a little bit more demanding than the other part as the the ground is quite uneven and it presents a few sloping points.

When you get to the white road turn right and walk on a slight ascent to the cableway station.

Variant

You can avoid going down along path 651 and come back following Mount Baldo ridge.

The tour during the winter
