Outside the hotel…

  • Choose from the many bike routes that start just a short distance away from the hotel: there are ones for every level and type from roads to dirt tracks.

When you return relax in the peace of the spa and treat yourself to a sports massage. 


Triathlon events on Lake Garda

Lake Garda is particularly suitable for triathlon events: here it is possible to hold swimming races directly in the lake, while the Basso Sarca plain, the mountains and the many paths in the area are perfect for intense cycling and running sessions. This is why Lake Garda is often chosen to host national and international competitions.
