Activity description

Retrace the ancient, famous route that tobacco smugglers would take above Lake Garda during this stunning 4-hour via ferrata that’s ideal for seasoned climbers looking for a challenge!

Live life on the edge (literally) and embark on this physically demanding route that’s all about panoramic views and difficult, exposed sections for you to conquer. With your certified guide, you’ll climb horizontally and maneuver your way across a legendary route that was once famous for criminals and for smuggling goods such as tobacco and salt between Austria and Italy.

Accessible aux sportifs de niveau moyen avec un minimum d’aguerrissement, car certains passages peuvent s’avérer difficiles. Mais inoubliable!
