Our Lake Como Hiking Tours

Glamorous Beauty and Authentic Charm, a few steps from the Mountains

Peacefully glistening and gracefully set in some among the most picture-perfect sceneries Italy has to offer, each Italian Lake has its own definite character. Well-known for its villas, lush gardens and classy villages, Lake Como has a wilder side hidden in the limestone massifs that crown its azure waters.

Explore the Lario mountains on the Western side of the Lake  and walk on superbly panoramic footpaths until Porlezza, a few steps from the Swiss border, or climb Monte Grona for unforgettable views on three different lakes.

Head to the East coast – for a more genuine and spontaneous side of the lake, where the Wayfarer’s Path links Varenna to other lakeside villages through panoramic paths and (possibly hunted) castles.

The lesser-known shore of Lake Como - the one along the Lecco branch, as described by Alessandro Manzoni - is where you can explore the Wayfarer's Path: a route that follows the lake’s edge, passing through towns like Varenna, with its castle (possibly haunted?) and lesser-known gems like Fiumelatte and the village of Corenno Plinio, connected by paths offering priceless views of the lake.
