SECOND STAGE

from Limone sul Garda to Campione del Garda

Vista panoramica
verso nord

Another splendid stage of the Great Tour of Garda, which starts from Limone sul Garda, to reach Campione del Garda.

The route gradually climbs, from the starting point, rising up to about 400 m above sea level, passing through some pleasant villages, such as Bassanega and Ustecchio, with frequent and beautiful panoramic views of Lake Garda and the surrounding hills. After a passage in the suggestive Valle del Bondo, it reaches and goes beyond the beautiful hamlets of Tremosine, and after a nice stretch in the woods, it drops into a steep final descent towards Campione.

This last part of the path, although not presenting significant difficulties, has some stretches slightly exposed, equipped with a lanyard.
