Bleisure in Trentino

Welcome to the heart of Trentino, a region nestled between the majestic Dolomites and the rolling hills of olive groves, overlooking Lake Garda, where the combination of business and leisure creates a pleasant bleisure experience.

Trentino is not only a land of mountains but a small jewel, rich in culture, opportunities and attractions that capture the hearts of business travellers and MICE operators; the ideal setting for those seeking a perfect balance between work, relaxation, and outdoor activities.

For business travellers, major cities such as Trento and Rovereto represent not only centres of innovation and progress but also headquarters of important companies and advanced research centres that attract professionals from all over the world. Business-friendly facilities, high-quality services, and the city's architectural beauty, create a welcoming atmosphere and an ideal environment for business and networking meetings.

However, Trentino goes far beyond the mere business aspect. Thanks to its rich cultural and historical heritage, travellers can immerse themselves in a fascinating and authentic world. In fact, the numerous castles, museums, and ancient villages with their traditional architecture offer the opportunity to travel into the past, discovering the roots of this land; places that preserve precious artistic testimonies that are the result of the contamination between the cultures of the north and the Mediterranean world that the position of this land has favoured.

Trentino Garda is unique. In fact, thanks to the Mediterranean climate that only on this shore is perfectly combined with the Alpine one, the Trentino area is for many, the most beautiful and suggestive of this great body of water, also thanks to the evident landscape contrast between the mountains and the vegetation. In fact, even though we are surrounded by mountains over 2,000 metres high, olive and lemon trees flourish on the lake shore.

Among the sports that can be practised, the most popular are undoubtedly sailing, windsurfing, mountain biking, sport climbing, canoeing and scuba diving, thanks to the many sports clubs available, which organise courses and international sports events. Here, sailing, and windsurfing enthusiasts can rely on the Ora, the wind that blows with great regularity every day. Conversely, those who prefer the thrill and vertigo of climbing, will find spectacular cliffs, suspended sheer above the water and veritable natural rock gyms. What is more, when strolling through the centres of Riva del Garda, Torbole and Arco, you get struck by the international atmosphere that you can feel along the lakefront and inland.

MICE operators can find in this area an ideal environment for organising meetings, conferences, and events of great interest. Indeed, state-of-the-art facilities blend harmoniously with evocative venues, such as the Congress Centre of Riva del Garda, perfect for large events and directly overlooking Italy's largest lake. From panoramic terraces with mountain views to evocative wine cellars, the possibilities for creating unforgettable experiences are endless.

This small, but at the same time rich territory, offers many opportunities for recreation, relaxation, and fun. In fact, we can offer a great variety of open-air activities such as high-altitude hikes, food and wine itineraries, sports activities and much more. Indeed, from ski slopes in winter to hiking trails in summer, to water sports such as windsurfing, sailing or kayaking, each season offers unique thrills. All this is accompanied by an authentic and genuine food and wine offer, from the excellence of Trentodoc sparkling wine to the numerous quality products such as cheeses, cured meats, small fruits and the PDO apples of the Val di Non.

Our region is a gem in the panorama of bleisure tourism, conquering business travellers with its perfect combination of work, culture, and nature. Trentino awaits you with open arms to offer you an unforgettable experience!
