Sporty Lake Garda
The list of sports practised around Lake Garda is almost endless. On and in the water, in the air, on the mountains, on the beach and in the hilly hinterland, athletes of all kinds work out and play hard all year round.
The fact that Lake Garda is so popular with active holidaymakers has to do with the diverse natural landscape, which offers ideal conditions for many sports such as surfing, sailing, hiking or mountain biking. Also, there are enough hours of sunshine per year, that sporting projects or events rarely get cancelled because of bad weather.
Sporty tourists and professionals alike, have always appreciated the proper conditions of the landscape and climate and are very enthusiastic about the region. Lake Garda hosts numerous major sporting events of international importance, such as the Rockmaster climbing competition in Arco, the Centomiglia sailing regatta, the Riva bike festival or the SURFestival in Torbole.
It doesn't always have to be an extreme sport either. The shores of Lake Garda are ideal for a leisurely jogging session or some relaxing or muscle-strengthening yoga exercises, especially in the early morning hours.
As it is teeming with active holidaymakers and innovative sports guns on Lake Garda, new and exciting sports are continually being added. While some are forgotten again after a short while, others quickly become the latest trend and spread all over Lake Garda.
