The Geotrail Gemme del Baldo has four stages (called caches) made according to the criteria of geocaching, which provide for the carrying out on site of simple practical activities on topics of earth sciences and botany. Recommended for families, mountain lovers, hikers of any level of experience and school classes. The area is also a magnificent example of balance between nature and tourist activities. The planned route and activities are completed in a maximum of three hours at a medium pace.
