The climate of the Garda Mountains is very mild as a result of its southerly location and the influence of the Mediterranean Sea. Snow rarely falls in the Sarca valley and on the shores of Lake Garda, and, in spring and autumn, temperatures of between 15-20 °C are often experienced. The Garda Mountains have very few glaciers and ski resorts. The Alpinist centre of the range is the town of Arco. In the vicinity of Arco there are countless sport climbing areas.
On the western shore of Lake Garda is the Parco Alto Garda Bresciano nature park.
