Lake Garda with its own wonderful panoramic views, tucked away into the mountain, is a perfect place for you and your mountain bike! Numerous are the sport tracks especially studied for this sport, for example:
From Limone to Tremosine
30 km in total, the track follows high suggestive panoramic spots. Starting from Limone, you can run for a short piece of Gardesana direction Campione and then turn on the right on a street which drives throughout a canyon as far as Pieve. From Pieve you will have lots of possibilities to go on both the paved road and rough track. Once in Vesio, you can go down in order to reach Limone again.
From Limone to Passo Tremalzo
A hard track especially devoted to runners with a good training, seeing the difference in height (from 60 to 1800 metres- for a distance of 50 km)
From Limone to Monte Caplone
Another challenging itinerary for a total distance of 66 km and a drop of about 1800 m. It takes about 7 hours to run the whole track. A hard challenge even for best trained sports people!
The Bondo Valley on Tremosine mountains
Once in Voltino, we reccommend to leave the car in a car park and to start with the MTB towards Vesio. From Vesio you can continue along the Valle di Bondo (soft upgrade) as far as Passo Nota (1200 m). From here it is possible to go back towards the lake following different routes. Distance: 21 km.
Trentino on bike
From Riva del Garda (10 km far from Limone) there are lots of cycling trails, perfect for people looking for flat routes but still challenging. You can continue towards Arco and Ponte Arche or towards Torbole. From here, the cycling trail continues as far as Austria!
The tracks starting from Limone to the mountains behind are numerous and amazing. With different levels of difficulty, the trekking variety of the Riviera dei Limoni offers a great choice with its varying scenarios. Many possibilities, most built during the II World War, connect the town with the mountain: the cycle path from the locality Nanzèl to that of Reamol, the two new promenades along the rivers San Giovanni and Pura leading throughout the olive groves, the Sentiero del Sole, the more difficult track leading to the Baita Segala (mt 1205), the path to Dalco and the most panoramic one going to Punta Larici and Cima Mughera.

An ideal place for regattas accessible all year round. It is always possible to go sailing on Lake Garda because of its constant winds: the Ora, which blows from south to north from late in the morning to late in the afternoon and the Pelér that blows from north to south from early in the morning to noon. This steady and punctual flow of air is the driving force behind sailing events of high standard organised on the lake.
The northern part of the lake is the best place for those who like windsurfing or who want to learn the secrets of this sport. There are windsurf centres along the lakeshores that organise national and international events and courses for adults and children.
In Limone, just a few steps from the hotel beach, you can find the windsurf school Surfing Lino.
The Tennis Club of Limone is situated just 200 m far from the hotel. Limone offers for its guests an equipped Tennis Club. It is furnished with 3 tennis courts, a wall for the training, a bar and other facilities. It is also possible to rent tennis shoes and rackets or to book a private lesson (with instructor). In the last week of August in Limone takes place the International Tennis Tournament “Citta’ Di Limone”.
