Why we love this tour

The towering Dolomites mountain range wrapping around Lake Garda provides endless climbing routes of all types. The via ferrata along Monte Colodri is a manageable route for both beginners and young family members. The ladders and steel cable brings you to the very top of the mountain for sweeping views of both the Arco Valley below and the sparkling Lake Garda in the distance.
You meet your expert guide and receive all the equipment in Arco, a town just north of the lake. No previous experience is necessary, all you need is average physical fitness and the enthusiasm to climb. Once you go over the safety briefing, a short walk brings you to the beginning of the route.
As you clamp your carabineer to the cables, you walk along ledges, climb up excellent footholds, and step up ladders to ascend higher up the jagged rock face. The constant wind of Lake Garda breezes past you and the Italian sun shines down. The town of Arco below becomes smaller and smaller as you become level with the massive green-covered mountains around you.Once at the top, take in the startling landscape: the gray Dolomites peak out around the smooth blue waters of Lake Garda. On the way down, you may stop for a visit to the ruins of Arco Castle, first built around 1000 AD.
The few hours on the course flies by, and in no time you’re back on the ground. Discover a new perspective of the largest glacial lake in Italy.

A very good experience. The number of exposed sections were shorter (but with considerable difficulty) than what I had expected. Hiking along the steep path carved out in the mountain was the mainstay. But 5/5 to our guide Matteo who was an expert mountaineer (he helped a fellow climber cross over a difficult section when she got badly stuck). Overall a very memorable experience!

Best day ever, easy to find very reliable and friendly staff. Plus you get to see some really great scenery on your way to the steering point. First class canyoning and the guide Andrea needs a pay rise.

This was definitely the highlight of my trip to Lake Garda! Such an amazing experience with one other solo traveller and our guide Andrea who immediately put us at ease with his sense of humour and easy going nature. He also kept a watchful eye on our safety as we were both first timers on a via ferrata climb. The views were spectacular ...even better than I anticipated! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun yet challenging activity

Location was very nice, instructor was friendly and experienced. We had a lot of fun! Only thing that was a bit confusing was the pickup. We booked through OutdoorVisit but we're supposed to find the tour operator (MMove) at the crowded pickup point. They didn't seem to be able to find our reservation, but after 20 mins everything worked out. This meant that other people had to wait for us though.

Fantastic day out. The guys were great, made it a laugh and I 100% recommend. I’m afraid of heights and water and managed to do it, my adrenaline was pumping. Lots of jumps and abseils. It is a little scary but you feel great and really feel you achieved something afterwards. I think the reps were called David and Andreo they were great!
