OUR GUIDED HIKING ROCK CLIMBING TRIPS AND INTERSTING LINKS
The first region with a Mediterranean climate and flora that you find in Europe travelling south Lake Garda brings us the gift of a last and unexpected breath of Mediterranean before reaching the passageways of the Alps heading north. Here, the intense blue of Lake touches the mountains; the olive branches speak with the wind, and the lemons mature in the sun. At one time, Goethe, Kafka, Mann and Rilke found inspiration for their genius precisely here. Today, the same atmosphere and natural beauty has remained intact and has become the ideal scenario for a vacation where it is both easy to relax and have fun: sailing and wind surfing on the waves, mountain biking and rock climbing the mountains or canyoning along exciting torrent rapids are just some of the daily sports in a world where it is easy to run into old castles and where fairy tales are celebrated every year on magic, mid-summer's night. Lake Garda Trentino is all that: a world at man's dimensions where the flavours of food, wine and olive oil are real.The history of the Alpine Guides in Trentino began with the birth of Alpinism in the Alps. Its protagonists have been explorers from England, Germany, Austria and local mountain guides. The mountain guide' s profession has been subject to changes and development. Until the end of the 18 th century they used to be the guides of rich aristocrats keen on granting their name to a famous peak or wall. The modern alpine guide however, is a professional with not only a profound knowledge of the manifold traditional and modern alpine techniques but is also an expert in nature, culture and history. In those days and at present, the mountain guides are the authors of national and international alpine history. The Trentino Alpine Guide Association is preparing the guides for their professional life. In Trentino 200 alpine guides are registered; they are being distributed among 12 Alpine Schools and/or other types of guides' associations. Practically in each valley of Trentino you can find an association of mountain guides which can provide information and advice. The Alpine Schools or guides' associations are offering a vast range of activities and courses which can be booked directly. With a mountain guide on your side, a day in the mountains, a simple excursion through the forests of our National Parks or a climbing tour, will become an unforgettable experience. The alpine guides of Trentino are publishing an annual program offering daily or weekly excursions events which are suitable for everyone who has already been in the mountains but is mainly addressing those who want to make first contact with them. The program includes excursions, hiking tours, climbing tours, high alpine treks, rock climbing, courses, canyoning or excursions in the National Parks with special park guides.
Marmolada is a mountain in Northeastern (just east of Trento) and the highest mountain of Trentino. The mountain is located about 70 miles north-northeast of Venice, from which it can be seen on a clear day. It consists of a ridge running west to east. Towards the south it breaks suddenly into sheer cliffs, forming a rock face several kilometres long. On the north side there is a comparatively flat glacier, the only large glacier in the Dolomites (the Marmolada Glacier, Ghiacciaio della Marmolada). The ridge is composed of several summits, decreasing in altitude from west to east: Punta Penia (3,343 m), Punta Rocca (3,309 m), Punta Ombretta (3,230 m), Monte Serauta (3,069 m), and Pizzo Serauta (3,035 m). An aerial tramway goes to the top of Punta Rocca. Paul Grohmann made the first ascent in 1864, along the north route. Before World War I, the border between Austria and Italy ran over Marmolada, so it formed part of the front line. Austrian soldiers were quartered in deep tunnels bored into the northern face's glacier, and Italian soldiers were quartered on the south face's rocky precipices. As glaciers retreat, soldiers' remains and belongings are occasionally discovered.
