Rifugio Altissimo via Malcesine Cable Car

14,5 km   |   6h 5m

Experience this 14.5 km round-trip trail near Malcesine, in the Veneto region. Considered challenging, it takes an average of 6 hours and 5 minutes to complete. Although a draw for hiking and trekking enthusiasts, it offers the chance to enjoy moments of solitude during less busy hours.

The route starts from the upper station of the Malcesine cable car, with a breathtaking view of Lake Garda. Along the trail, one can enjoy an exceptional panorama, both of the lake and the surrounding territory. The path crosses a vast meadow, passing by a restaurant, and leads to one of the most striking panoramic points over Garda: from Arco, Riva, and Torbole in the north to Peschiera and Desenzano in the south, like a postcard under the open sky.

The itinerary continues through wooded paths and meadows, passing by the Rifugio Bocca Navene (1425m), up to the Rifugio Altissimo (2059m) and the summit of Monte di Nago (2079m).
