Parco Alto Garda Bresciano
The Parco Alto Garda Bresciano was created in 1989 with a regional law. The park stretches from the eastern side of Lake Garda bordering to the north with Valle di Ledro in the province of Trento and to the east with Valle Sabbia, including an impressive 9 municipalities (Salò, Gardone Riviera, Toscolano Maderno, Valvestino, Magasa, Gargnano, Limone sul Garda, Tignale and Tremosine). .
The Park offers splendid landscapes, characterised by sheer rock faces dropping onto the lake, panoramic itineraries through the valleys, mountains and woods inland, long beaches, rivers and streams... Habitats vary from alpine in the mountains to sub-Mediterranean near the lake, thus host to beautiful and varied species of flowers and over 250 animal species. The Park is renowned par excellence for the amazing contrasts, in altitude, climate and vegetation, for a deeply rich surroundings.
For those who love nature and unspoilt landscape, the Parco Alto Garda Bresciano is a dream come true, a small corner of paradise that still today is kept, protected and respected to the full.
