In fact, on Lake Garda and its surroundings, there are many wellness and spa facilities such as geothermal pools, spa, wellness areas with massage services and beauty treatments with excellent cosmetic products.

Among the offers we also mention the ever-growing fitness and yoga sector that many beauty & wellness centers offer along with beauty packages.

On Lake Garda it is highly recommended to follow a wellness path to get that extra physical and mental recharge from your holiday for a sweet return to home

 

So let's see what are the wellness and sports activities that regenerate body and mind and that you can add to your experience on Lake Garda.

 

WELLNESS & SPA

In the first place we certainly recommend SPA and thermal facilities: pools with thermal water, paths that reactivate the circulation with jets of hot and cold water, hydromassage, emotional showers with chromotherapy and water aerobics.

In many of these establishments, real medical therapies can also be requested to prevent and heal the most common physical symptoms such as allergies, sinusitis and skin problems.

Finally, you can take advantage of physical rehabilitation services, regenerating holistic massages and beauty treatments for the face and body based on thermal water and other products of certain efficacy.

Let's start with these first:
 

TERME DI SIRMIONE AQUARIA THERMAL SPA (Brescia side)

Aquaria is a spectacular spa of the Terme di Sirmione group that offers over 3500 square meters of covered area and 6500 square meters of park overlooking Lake Garda. Surely the most famous of the thermal parks.

THERMAL BATHS OF LAZISE (Verona side)

The park of the thermal baths of Lazise has a huge garden with a lake and centuries-old trees surrounding the historic residence of Villa dei Cedri. The thermal water reaches a temperature of 37 ° C rich in microelements which is conveyed to a 5000 m2 pond where baths and whirlpools are practiced, very useful for motor rehabilitation and reactivation of the venous circulation. In the park there are also sources for hydropinic therapy (it favors diuresis) and sweat caves.

CAESIUS THERMAL AND CLIMATE CENTER IN BARDOLINO (Verona side)

The Thermal and Climatic Center of the Hotel Caesius in Bardolino, on Lake Garda, is located on the source of Bardolino's mineral water that comes from Monte Baldo and reaches us without contamination. It is particularly suitable for treatments in which the intake of mineral waters is required and in those in which the treatments include baths, packs, physical exercise immersed in water at different temperatures and pressures.

In addition, Bardolino Thermal Water is excellent for purifying treatments, especially for the kidneys and liver.

Among the treatments we also mention the hydromassage, the bath in infusions of medicinal aromatic plants, the renowned Kneipp path, a Finnish sauna, a Mediterranean sauna, the Turkish bath and the Frigidarium. All accompanied by holistic massages, fitness classes and yoga sessions.

YOGA, PILATES & FITNESS

 

Fortunately, yoga has now became very requested and popular and convinced even the most active fans of weights and fitness.

Yoga is useful to release mental and physical stress with its stretching and strengthening sessions through asanas, or the positions of yoga.

There are many types of yoga, from the most relaxing and meditative ones (hatha, yin, restorative) to the most active ones (power, vinyasa)

Alternatively or in combination with yoga we also remember pilates, which in fact takes its cue from many millenary positions that we find in the yogic discipline.

Most of the spa and hydrotherapy facilities offer fitness areas with modern equipment and machinery, water aerobics sessions and yoga classes that will satisfy both people looking for a more active movement and people who want a softer and more passive movement.

As an alternative to these facilities, we remind you that during summertime many beaches offer pilates and yoga classes to provide a service that is not only beneficial but also funny.

SECRET GARDENS

 

Lake Garda is a fabulous place for those who love nature as it offers mountains, lakes and spectacular views especially if you love hiking or mountain biking.

If you like nature, we also recommend a couple of "secret gardens" to visit!

 

The first is that of the Vittoriale degli Italiani, a complex of buildings, streets, squares, an open-air theater, gardens and waterways erected in 1921, in Gardone Riviera by the poet Gabriele d'Annunzio. If you are looking for a bit of tranquility and an unusual and original walk, you will find an excellent solution here.

The second garden we propose you is that of Heller Garden, a botanical garden purchased by the artist Andrè Heller to become a center of ecological awareness. Many elements lead back to different traditions such as Buddhist and Hindu and wisely inserted together with works by famous artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring.

Over the years, helped by a climate that Heller calls the "air of luck", he has managed to transform it into a heavenly garden where plants from all over the world are housed.

A place that inspires and relaxes, and opens the mind and heart to a vision of life connected to nature.

OUTDOOR SPORTS & WILD NATURE

Finally, remember that Lake Garda is one of the most coveted places in Italy for outdoor sports, even with the family.

In summer, the most popular sports are trekking, mountain biking and windsurfing.

Trekking is perfect if you like walking and admiring mountains and lakes, mountain biking if you love cycling in the nature, windsurfing and SUP if you love water sports and wind. There are numerous windsurfing centers, bike rental shops and trekking equipment.

Once you arrive you will be spoiled for choice!
