The Italian lake district is well known for being a romantic part of the world. It’s also popular among those looking to get active on holiday and enjoy the spectacular surroundings by bike, foot, boat or horseback. However, what many people don’t know is that Lake Garda holidays are the perfect choice for families.
The Italians love children, so your brood can be sure of a warm welcome wherever you go. Yet Lake Garda has much more to offer families than a few friendly smiles. You and yours will enjoy a beautiful climate, with temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees C from April to October, and some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world.
Family activity holidays are especially well catered for, with a wide variety of family friendly activities to enjoy together. Why not pack up a picnic from a deli and head off on a family hike, hire bikes or book a horse-riding trek around the lake?
Of course, the lake itself offers many opportunities to get active. The clean, warm waters of the lake are ideal for swimming - or why not hire a sail boat and take the family out for the afternoon? If you want to try your hand at something new, dingy courses are great for kids, whereas adults will find catamaran sailing courses for all abilities.
Those travelling to Lake Garda with children should have the Gardaland theme park right at the top of their holiday ‘to do’ list. With rides and attractions for all ages, this is a popular day out that mustn’t be missed.
Another day should be earmarked for the Canevaworld resort, which includes the Movieland Studios park and the Aqua Paradise waterpark.
For fun activity holidays that the whole family can enjoy, Lake Garda is a great choice of summer destination.
