The area of the Parco Alto Garda Bresciano features two different types of landscape, both of great naturalistic and aesthetic value. The shores of lake Garda, with their characteristic villages and purely Mediterranean vegetation, and the surrounding upland areas, home to small settlements with a mountain climate and flora.
The highest parts are almost 2000 metres above sea level. The lakeside area includes the municipalities from Salò to Limone, whose economies are based almost entirely on tourism. However, all nine of the park's municipalities include hill and mountain areas, where trekking lovers will find the perfect terrain for walks and climbs, facilitated by the a number of refuges and camps.
Cima Rest, with its typically Austro-Hungarian thatched barns, is an excellent starting point for excursions to Cima Tombea and Monte Caplone. In just a short distance, the Mediterranean environment of the lakeside, full of lemon and olive groves, magically gives way to chestnut and oak woods, and higher up, splendid beech woods.
