The long mountain ridge that towers above the northeast shores of Lake Garda is known as Monte Baldo. Ironically, the name doesn’t refer to its baldness (although the upper slopes are treeless), rather, it comes from the German word wald meaning forest. The Monte Baldo ridge reaches its highest point at Cima Valdritta (2218m), one of five significant summits that punctuate the ridge. Baldo is a hiking and mountain-biking paradise thanks to a combination of Google Earth lake views, well-maintained trails and easy access to high alpine terrain via the Monte Baldo cable car located at 1760m. From the summit station, hiking trails fan out in all directions including along the narrow ridge to the summit. Mountain bikers prefer the tumbling single-track descents that head down towards the base terminus in Malcesine. Another popular way of descending is by paragliding off the ridge utilising the thermals that caress the slopes on this part of the lake.

Monte Baldo is a popular destination among tourists in winter due to the presence of ski runs and in summer as it is the ideal place for walking and enjoying the beautiful landscape of garda lake.
Enjoy stunning vistata form the top of Monte Baldo, above Malcesine. A popular ski resort in winter it transforms into an outdoor outdoor paradise in summer - for hiking, paragliding or just enjoying the views and a coffee. It can be reached on foot or with a state of the art rotating cable car (worth at least one ride in it!).
If you come to Lake Garda, you can't miss Monte Baldo. You can reach it by cable and then walking once you are on the top! One of our favourite spots!
Consigliatissimo il passaggio in funivia (in pochi minuti si arriva a 1800 mt) per ammirare un panorama straordinario dalla cima de monte Baldo. We highly recommend the passage to the cable car (in just a few minutes you reach 1800 mt) to admire an extraordinary panorama from the top of Monte Baldo.
