Accessible tourism on Lake Garda
A barrier-free holiday to discover Lake Garda
Lake Garda is a territory for everyone: there are many accessible services and inclusive activities for a holiday that is attentive to every need.
Lake Garda, known for its high quality and constantly renewed tourist services, is an ideal holiday destination for every type of visitor, also accessible to people with different abilities and needs.
There are many campsites with particular attention to guests with disabilities, especially those that by their nature arise on flat land along the shores of our lake.
Visitors will therefore not find excessive slopes inside the village, nor architectural barriers to access the services offered.
Mobile homes of the latest generation guarantee comfort and sufficient space even for disabled guests and the shared toilets always have a variety of structures suited to their needs.
But it does not end here: the territory of Lake Garda has been a well-known destination for several years now for fun and the practice of inclusive sports, for a dynamic and special holiday for everyone.
In fact, it is not difficult to find in the area beaches with platforms designed for wheelchairs, public transport complete with mobile platforms and reserved spaces and spectacular attractions equipped with all the comforts so that no one is excluded.
An example of total accessibility is represented by the panoramic cableway that from the village of Malcesine climbs up to the peaks of Monte Baldo: each cabin has space for two wheelchairs, the underground car park is equipped with spacious lifts that lead directly to the ticket office and the access is free for both visitors with specific disabilities and their companions.
For lovers of wind on the face and adventure, there are several sailing schools that offer courses and boats suitable for some forms of disability, of which the flagship is Archè: an accessible sailing boat of 12 meters, moored in Riva del Garda, equipped with large seats in complete safety and guided by two experienced skippers with expertise in the care sector.
A holiday full of adrenaline and freedom in contact with nature on Lake Garda can only include sports such as kitesurfing and climbing: over the years these activities too have been structured with an important sensitivity towards sporty people with different characteristics - this is why many schools offer facilities and courses entirely dedicated to them.
The paraclimbing wall of the Placche of Baone in Arco, the scene of various international competitions, is known all over the world and it is also the first barrier-free crag with the trail signs also written in the Braille alphabet.
Finally, there are many solutions to explore the area and its fascinating villages, many structured in flat and well-paved walks along the lake. A suggestion to spend a day immersed in the beauties of the city is a visit to the village of Sirmione: an enchanting destination, rich in history and that can be explored even on a wheelchair.
The entrance to car traffic is reserved for residents and the disabled, moreover the fascinating monuments such as the Rocca Scaligera, the Grottoes of Catullus and the palace of Maria Callas are equipped with numerous attentions, such as the entrances to the rooms at least 85 cm wide, buttons in Braille and perfectly equipped toilets.
Lake Garda is the ideal destination for a holiday to discover the many treasures of its territory, designed so that everyone can experience maximum comfort and fun.
