What to do on Lake Garda: #sport

Do you like physical activity and sport in general? Lake Garda gives you the opportunity to do lots of activities, to train and to experiment with new sports, all framed by a unique natural landscape. Because if it's nice to keep fit, it's even more enjoyable to do it outdoors, in the middle of nature, on mountain paths overlooking the lake or even in the water!

1 - cycling. Camping Baia Verde is located within a very rich network of cycle paths in the Valtenesi, which goes towards the north and south of the lake. Many guests come to our camping with their own bicycle, ready to discover Lake Garda on two wheels. For those who cannot bring their own bikes, since last year we have activated the bike and e-bike rental service directly at our village.

2 - windsurfing. How not to mention the sport that was born right here on Lake Garda? Windsurfing is one of the most popular sports, especially in the upper part of Lake Garda where the perfect wind blows to launch onto the table in stratospheric evolutions. There are so many schools and instructors that, at any time, allow you to learn and have fun like never before. Try it yourself!

3 - golf. A relaxing sport but at the same time of concentration, completely immersed in the nature of the hills of Lake Garda, among green meadows and typical vegetation. On the west coast there are many golf courses, we mention Golf Bogliaco (in Toscolano Maderno, about 15 minutes from our camping), GardaGolf Country Club in Soiano and Golf Club “il Colombaro” in Salò, even closer to the village Baia Verde.

What to see on Lake Garda: #culture

If you want to know more about the history and culture of this corner of earthly paradise, we recommend the most suggestive places.

1 - the Vittoriale degli Italiani. Located in Gardone Riviera, it was the home of Gabriele d'Annunzio, now it is an open-air museum. It is possible to take guided tours and participate in events, concerts and breathtaking shows in the beautiful outdoor amphitheater with a panoramic view of the lake.

2 - Mu.Sa in Salò. A museum recently built in the spaces of the Church of Santa Giustina of 1587 in Salò, it houses interesting and unique art and scientific collections, often signed by world-renowned artists. It is open all year.

3 - Grotte di Catullo. An ancient archaeological site and an imposing example of a Roman villa best preserved in northern Italy, all to be visited together with the museum that houses numerous finds from the excavations.
