Lake Garda is located in the northern province of Trento (Trentino Alto Adige region). It's the largest lake in Italy and a popular holiday destination. It has a mild Mediterranean climate, great for climbing year round.
Perched above the north end of the lake, the Arco and Nago regions are considered a climbing mecca and offer picture-perfect views of the blue water and surrounding mountains while you climb.
The limestone rock formations look like perfect waves and the routes are well bolted.
