Experience is required for children under 18 years of age


The Via Ferrata along the Sentiero dei Contrabbandieri, excavated by Austrian soldiers during the war, stretches for 2 km horizontally. The route is entirely overhanging the lake and therefore offers an exciting view through its whole length. Although the route is not too difficult, it is necessary that children already have experience of via Ferrata.
The Balconi sul Garda path is also called Sentiero Contrabbandieri (Smugglers' Path). It is not constituted by a proper via Ferrata as only a few passages are, in fact, secured with steel cable. The guide will be the one to be linked with the participants.

Tour programme
- Preparation:
We meet at our meeting point 10 minutes before the start of the activity. From there we all drive together, but with our own cars, to the beginning of the via Ferrata. When you arrive at the parking lot, you receive the equipment to wear. After a technical explanation to know the path to face it safely, we will begin to walk the approach route.

The guide will help you every step of the way. When you reach the summit, you can take a break, take some pictures and enjoy the view.

The descent is about 40 minutes. Arrival is at the parking where you will find your cars.

Recommendations for Via Ferrata along the Sentiero dei Contrabbandieri

MalteAugust 12, 2021verified1 day (4 hours/day)

The views are breathtaking! The via ferrata is very exciting in terms of surefootedness: if you take a step too far to the left, you end up on the stones below. If you have no problems with that, you have a very nice "hiking trail" to go. You need the carabiners in (only) four places, as you cannot get over these passages without help.
