Lake Idro has become a top climbing area in just a few years

The climbing area at Lake Idro has been greatly expanded in recent years. We recommend the Via Ferrata Sasse or Crènch.

“A paradise for climbers and for those who would like to become so“ Both our guest – who travels to Lake Idro because of this paradis - and a magasin describes it like that. Those of you, who are looking for a kick, can come to the reception for more info about climbing adventures, via-ferrata´s, and climbing walls. The climbing area at Lake Idro has, within the latest years, been highly expanded.. If you don´t have your own climbing equipment, you can rent it in the reception.

The Ferrata-routes at Lake Idro are expanded every year – and new routes are opened. In the districts Vesta and Crone you will find different Ferrata´s with a variation of severities.

Vea Ferrata Crènch – route is located in Crone district. It leads you over an, aprox. 400 meter long, vertical bridge towards Gipfelkreuz. From here you have a fantastic view over the southern part of the lake.

Via Ferrata Sasse takes you to the district of Vesta, via a horizontal route of aprox. 3 km, in the direction of Bondone. From here on it will be climbing on your way back to Vesta. This is an absolutely unique experience… so close to the lake! In high season you can choose the boat traffic on the way back – this way you will experience the trip one more time – from the water.
