Italy isn’t just for the culture vultures and history enthusiasts. The variety of appeal that Italy holds is a spectacular feat and the Italian lakes holidays and mountain escapes in the north of the country provide majestic and phenomenal landscapes that can be enjoyed by many, all year round.
The lakes and mountains of the north continue to be a destination hotspot for fitness fanatics everywhere. Travellers embarking on European walking holidays find the area to be a perfect base. With the Mediterranean climate and the varying hikes, from leisurely strolls to energy filled treks, it’s easy to see why people return to the area year after year and leave feeling revitalised every time.
With the craggy peaks of the Dolomites, the scattered resorts around the lakes and the shimmering waters, enthusiasts for the outdoors are in their element. Make a base in Lake Garda or Lake Como; browse online for any last minute deals or value breaks. Once unpacked, seek help from an onsite activity specialist to help create a bespoke itinerary to suit your requirements.
Enjoy a walking holiday on Lake Garda by taking part in three days worth of small group excursions and guided walks, showing you all of the quality routes and giving you the chance to explore the area and realise some of the fascinating heritage that resides here. At the Northern tip of Lake Garda, participate in some thrill seeking watersports and hillside activities, including climbing, canyoning, sailing and for the test of ultimate stamina – kitesurfing.
It doesn’t all have to be about fitness during your stay. Take time out one evening and for a spot of glitz, take a trip from your base in Lake Como to the cosmopolitan city of Milan. Or, if you’re resort is on the shore of Lake Garda, how about appreciating some culture and catching an opera in nearby Verona?
