The inland territory of Tignale, with its variety of routes to follow, is extremely suitable for mountain-biking a paradise of roads, old mule-tracks and paths that climb up the wonderful mountains that surround the inhabited part of Tignale. Passing from the hills to the mountains, up to 1600 metres above sea level, you experience magnificent views: from the characteristic terraces of the olive groves to the mountain rock-face between holmoaks, laurels, and rosemary typical of the Mediterranean scrub, climbing through pine woods, ash trees, chestnut trees, hornbills and beech trees - always with the sudden chance of seeing the dazzling blue of the Lake. Certainly, it can be tiring. However, satisfaction and energy are not only expended but also regained in terms of mental and spiritual energy when you are on the top of a ridge overlooking the magnificent Lake, or immersed in fragrant woods or in the old summer pastures that are seeped in history.
Guided Nordic Walking. Nordic Walking has been defined as a brisk walk using special walking poles. The general concept of Nordic walking was developed using the basic methods of off-season training and teaching of cross-country skiing. Compared to regular walking, Nordic Walking involves the application of a force to the poles with every step. This implies the use of the entire body (with greater intensity) and determines the involvement of muscles not used in normal walking.
Eagerly awaited by tourists and residents of Tignale and the local area, the mediaeval market stands out as a favourite in Tignale’s calendar of events. In the narrow mediaeval streets of the village of Gardola there is an ancient market for an evening: the opportunity to taste and purchase local products, from wine to liqueurs and jams, with stalls selling handicrafts, from jewellery to clothes, all accompanied by a large group of people in period costumes, music, acrobats, fire-eaters and games in the streets. An event not to be missed!
Guided Visit and Tasting at the Lemon House
What are those high pillars soaring skywards, all lined up, enclosed with white stone walls on three sides? Lake Garda, especially along its west bank from Limone to Salò, still has some notable examples of structures not found anywhere else, to remind us of an epoch and civilisation now lost. ?They are the remains of lemon groves which impressed Goethe two hundred years ago and now are still impressing you!
