Lake Garda

Lake Garda is the largest lake in Italy. And as such, it is frequented by tourists who want to get away from the crowded tourist spots and want to enjoy the natural beauty of Italy. It is therefore on top of my list when I visited Italy. This section provides archived posts of the top destinations and activities that I got to explore while in Lake Garda.

If you are looking for an adventure, you will find plenty of inspiration from my posts. You can also get tips on how to create the perfect itinerary that will allow you to make the most of what Lake Garda has to offer. Some of the fun activities I was able to try included horse riding, via ferrata, and paragliding.

Horsing Riding in Lake Garda

Giovanni is a jolly Italian man with a passion for leading horse riding experiences in the Alto Garda Park, Lake Garda.  With years of experience, he started his guiding days at the young age of 18 years taking tourists on walking tours of the area.
