HIKING WITH SANDRA
Sandra is one of our guides.
Sandra’s story: In 2014 I left my job at a bank after almost 17 years of service to live the life I always dreamed about. I wanted to pursue my passion of being outdoors, of challenging myself physically and mentally, and to live every day in the mountains, on the lake, traveling and constantly discovering.
In 2015 I passed the Environmental Guidance exam and my passion has now also become my job... my new life consists of mountain shelters, outdoor excursions, cycling far and wide on the lake, and… I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love to take people hiking through my beloved land to experience the lake and the mountains firsthand
Here are some of the hikes that you can do with me:
PASTURES AND ALPINE COTTAGES OF BALDO
A moderate level walking excursion that allows you to explore the areas of mountain pasture and coppices of the “fascia delle malghe”, from which the view of southern Lake Garda is incomparable. Included in the excursion is lunch at a typical Malga Pralongo with food typical of this hilly area.
THE CABLE CAR RIDE TO MALCESINE
Taking the cable car up to 1760m s.l.m. to Tratto Spino, we then go by foot to the “Colma of Malcesine” that presents us with a magnificent view of the entire Benaco area. You will find the views breath taking. Along the walk, we will encounter many different species of flora and fauna, including the most enchanting floral species in all the gardens of Europe. We will witness the changes made by glaciers during the glacial era. There could even be possible meetings with wild fauna, particularly with friendly marmots, who will help to fix indelibly this day in our memories.
STRONGHOLD OF GARDA
A walk through some inland areas of Lake Garda that allows us to discover the lake through unpaved paths immersed in nature. We’ll have a few hours of quiet, with some breathtaking landscapes.
