Recharge your batteries between the Alps and the lake
The striking town of Arco is located in the Valle del Sarca, a few kilometres north of Riva. With its wonderful arches, picturesque views and beautiful fountains, it nestles at the foot of sheer rocks where the majestic Castle of Arco towers over the valley. Thanks to its mild climate, this hamlet has been renowned for centuries as a holiday destination and today it is increasingly popular among climbing lovers. Every year in September it plays host to the “Rock Master" festival, a competition in which international free climbers challenge each other.
