The Flowers of Baldo
The Brentonico Plateau
(500 m – 2079 m), on the northern slopes of Monte Baldo
, is known by naturalists all over Europe for its wealth of rare flowers and plants.
Enjoy an exploration day in the Parco dei Fiori
(Park of Flowers) on Monte Baldo, visiting the Bés-Corna Piana nature reserve
: 150 hectares of protected land, inhabited by endemic species that survived the glaciations.
In Brentonico the Palazzo Eccheli Baisi botanic garden
is home to 500 species from Baldo and the Alps. Get stuck into the extensive network of paths for trekking and mountain biking
, which connect villages and ‘malghe’ (shepherd’s huts), ‘baite’ (huts) and shelters. From here you can admire spectacular views
over Garda and the Valle dell’Adige.
A large range of sports facilities, gyms and swimming pools invites you to practice your favourite sport, from tennis to football, bowling to climbing. The Polsa Adventure Park awaits big and small alike for lively routes with ropes, ladders and Tibetan bridges – think Tarzan meets Indiana Jones. This is only one of the countless opportunities that the area offers for an active holiday. In winter modern lifts
take you up to the sunny slopes (link ski map) of Polsa and San Valentino
, 35 km of them.
One of the biggest snow parks in Trentino
is on hand while San Giocomo is the place for cross-country skiing
. The stations are linked by ski-bus
to the slopes of Prà Alpesina, on the Verona side of Monte Baldo, where you can enjoy a splendid view of the lake whilst skiing
Sledging, ice skating, ski touring and snowshoeing complete the attractions of a holiday in the snow offered by the first winter station met when approaching Trentino from the plains.
