Excursions and trekking

Lake Como offers a enormous variety of hiking possibilities, from easy walks for families to the more difficult ones for skilled hikers.  The itineraries we present allow you to discover the old connection paths which run along the lake, or the woody hills with their rural settlements, or to the more scenic heights of the mountains along Lake Como. Each itinerary has its own character with historical, artistic and natural features to explore.

If you wish to be guided by a professional mountain guide you can consult the listing here below or refer to the mountain associations CAI, Casa delle Guide (House of Guides) and Guide alpine del Lario e delle Grigne (Alpine guide of Lake Como and of the Grigne mountain group). Hiking Como Lake offers a monthly program of guided excursions with an English speaking guide.

The numerous refuges on the mountains are located in strategic points offering facilities and refreshment to travellers who are passing by, or for those reaching their final destination.


There are also major mountain routes for mountain hut-to-mountain hut hikes such as the Via dei Monti Lariani (a six day hike from Cernobbio to Sorico), the Sentiero delle 4 Valli (a three day hike from Breglia to Dasio Valsolda), and the Dorsale del Triangolo Lariono (a two day hike from Como to Bellagio) see descriptions below.

Under the item itineraries you will find a large selection of walks also ideal for families.
