Where do you start from to live Lake Garda like a real local? Easy, Laura, Natasha and Elena will tell you all about it. They are the girls from the Hotel Santoni Freelosophy and you should read all about their experiences before coming to Lake Garda. Trekking along adrenalinic trails, kiting in the blue water of the lake and fun bike rides with your mtb or e-mtb.. Lake Garda definitely won't bore you!
Laura, Natasha and Elena will spoil you during your entire holiday and in their spare time, they still make time to practice lots of sport.. and enjoy their aperitivi [if you need any advice on that you definitely have to ask them].
KITE SURF, for Laura vento tra i capelli and speed
Laura is restless, never stops and she loves water sports. On Lake Garda you are spoiled for choice where water sports are concerned, you can choose between kite surfing, wind surfing and sailing.
The alarm goes off at 6 AM even when she's not working, just in time to catch the first ride down the lake that leaves Kitesegnana at 7 AM. As you may know, the Hotel Santoni Freelosophy organises early breakfast at 6.30 AM for kiters, so you won't have to start your day on an empty stomach. Obviously work never stops, so at 11 am Laura is already out of the water and getting ready for work at reception. On her day off, she doesn't think twice about a second round of kiting, so at 1 PM she is out again until 5.30 PM. Why? Well this is the water sport that means freedom and getting rid of any worries! And at the end of the day you can't not stop at the Gipsy Van for a refreshing Aperol Spritz! Most of the times, days out kiting are guaranteed by Lake Garda's two main winds, the Peler in the morning and the Ora in the afternoon. But if there's a day without wind it's not a problem, then it's time to relax on the lake side in Torbole sul Garda. What do you think of this programme? Do you like it?
TREKKING, for Natasha incredible views and peacefullness
Natasha, a ray of sunshine and so full of life would never say no to a day out climbing, however hard it may be.
She is definitely a mountain addict! Trekking is her real passion and the best way to beat stress. So if you need any advice on trails or days out in the mountains around Lake Garda, she is the right person to ask. You will find her at the reception of the Hotel Santoni Freelosophy. She would do anything to spend a day in the moutains, but what she loves the most is to get up early to watch the sun rise, a wonder of nature. Days out in the mountains are not all about walking, but also about good food in the local huts. After a long day at high altitude, what you need is a dip in Lake Garda to freshen up. Natasha is always organised, she has probably already been in touch with her friends to meet on the beach and order a take away pizza whilst waiting for the sunset. So romantic! So if you love hiking, you have found the right person to ask for advice !
MTB for Elena a rediscovery and sense of freedom
Elena, the right person for any occasion but especially for a day out biking on Lake Garda.
Elena has recently rediscovered her passion for the MTB, you want to know when this happened? After trying out the Rotwild e-bike that is for hire at the Hotel Santoni Freelosophy. Garda Trentino is famous for its incredible bike tours, the main one being Punta Larici. Where do you start from? From the Hotel Santoni Freelosophy, of course, direction Riva del Garda! Once there, you take the Ponale and start the climb. After a few kilometers you can already stop for your first coffee at the Ponale Alto Belvedere, where you can also enjoy the great view. Time to set off again, the climb becomes steeper and steeper (if you're without an e-bike ;)) and finally you reach Punta Larici! The views are so stunning, you have to try it to believe it! After this climb you definitely need to recharge your batteries, so we receommend a stop at the Restaurant Panorama in Pregasina, where the portions of pasta are so big you will find it hard to get up from the table after you have eaten ! To end the day in the most perfect way, you can't miss out on a drink at the Lounge Bar of the Hotel Santoni ;)
So, have we convinced you? There is so much to choose from and these are just some of the outdoor acitivites that you can try on Lake Garda and surrounding areas. Our advice? Try them all, you can even challenge us at who is the fastest.. or drinks the best spritz ;)!
