What you'll do

Michele, Luca and I will take you to discover the nature and history of Garda Lake, sailing along its northern coasts. The starting is planned from the port of San Nicolò, located on the slopes of Mount Brione: the wind will lead us from the Riva coasts, full of nice beaches and mediterranean vegetation, up to the western rocky walls. Near the Ponale waterfalls we will stop to observe the bunkers, the caves, and the military stakeouts from World War I. Then we will keep sailing south until we reach the town of Limone: here it is possible to admire the greenhouses of lemons and oranges cultivated since the Serenissima Age, where these fruits were exported all over Europe. Afterwards we cross the lake to admire the Scaligero Castle of Malcesine, made famous by the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, who described and drew the Castle in many of his works. Before returning to the port we will sail along the windy beaches of Navane and Torbole.

The fleet available includes 5 sailboats (from 8 m up to 11 m.) equipped with all comfort included a private bathroom on board.
In case of bad weather the experience can be postponed in agreement with my guests.
Other things to note
Bring a bathing suit, sunscreen, hat and beach towel with you; during the low season I suggest you to wear gloves, a hat and a rain jacket.

It was a nice tour. The space on the boat was a bit tight, which can become uncomfortable given the length of the tour.

A fun experience on a unique location. I’ve been to lake Garda many times before but this sailing tour gave me a new perspective of this beautiful lake. Clear communication beforehand, a fun tour guide, a great boat and beautiful weather!

Luglio 2020 Bellissima escursione! Un grazie sincero a Matteo, il nostro skipper, che ha saputo coinvolgere tutto il gruppo presente: ci ha dato notizie tecniche della barca, raccontato delle città attraversate ma soprattutto ci ha dato la possibilità di timonare l'imbarcazione. Consigliatissimo 👍

Bel giretto nel lago, il nostro skipper ci ha intrattenuto con storie e racconti. Tutto il team è stato gentilissimo e ci hanno aiutato anche più del dovuto per esempio per salire a bordo visto che uno di noi aveva problemi di ginocchia. Peccato che il tour non abbia potuto toccare tutti i punti dati nella descrizione, ci siamo limitati a fare su e giù in una zona ristretta a nord. La motivazione che ci è stata data è stato che le acque erano molto mosse più avanti, ma sarebbe stato bello essere avvisati in anticipo, o almeno appena a bordo. La descrizione della barca non era accurata, non aveva il bagno nè una copertura dal sole come invece era stata garantita. Non ci sono stati nè cibo nè bevande offerte
