Out of season, Lake Garda is perhaps even more enjoyable and pleasant than in summer, due to the mild climate it offers, and above all because there are no crowds of tourists, typical of the high season. Saturday 15/01/2022, taking advantage of these circumstances, we reached Limone del Garda, and we made the excursion that leads to Punta Larici, one of the most extraordinary panoramic points of the whole lake.


Trekking: from Limone del Garda to Punta Larici (Lombardy-Trentino)


Punta Larici is a truly remarkable panoramic balcony over Lake Garda, reachable from several starting points. The simplest and least tiring itineraries start from Pregasina, a hamlet of Riva del Garda, in Trentino (to which the memory of one of our other pleasant mountain bike trips is linked - read article).

On this occasion, however, we climbed following the itinerary that climbs from Limone del Garda, along the Sentiero del Sole (Sun path), and then by the trail marked by number 122. The 122 is a spectacular path, but good for "goats", because it has an accentuated slope throughout its route, which, only in the first part, and in some intermediate sections, is reduced also thanks to a series of hairpin bends, and passages between gorges and ridges, intelligently designed. I don't say this to discourage you, but so that you are aware of what awaits you. And also bear in mind that we went up in January in shorts and a T-shirt with the sleeves rolled up. In January.... We advise against taking the path during the hottest hours of the day between May and September, or, if necessary, shelter well from the sun, and to bring an adequate supply of water. Also consider that the difference in altitude is about 1100 meters. Therefore, the hike requires a fair amount of fitness.

However, following the route is simple and error-free (see our map in the article).

After a well-deserved sandwich, contemplating the panorama, we started thinking about the descent. You can get off at Pregasina, and then take the bus to return to Limone. Or, you can return to Limone, with wider routes (and with track longer than the ascent described here): or the one that passes from Cima Mughera, and then falls towards Limone, with some aided sections; or the one that passes through Baita Segala, less technical, but long.

To go down, we redid the ascent path, for reasons of time. We did, however, take it calmly, above all so as not to put our knees to hard test, given the steepness of the path.

However, in less than 1 hour and a half, we returned to Limone, enjoying the last soft lights of the winter sunset. Lake Garda once again gave us a beautiful day.

Have a nice walk. Fabio Muriano
