A 4-hour guided trekking through chestnut woods and olive trees providing unparalleled views over Lake Como and the mountains.

A professional guide will meet you in Varenna at 9am. From here, you will take the train to Bellano where you start the hike back to the starting point in Varenna.

This 3-hour guided hike will allow you to discover the 'Sentiero del Viandante' (Wanderer Path), a panoramic mountainside mule path winding through chestnut woods and olive trees. This path was the ancient way of connection between Lecco and Valtellina: starting from Abbadia and passing through the territories of Varenna and Dervio, the path reaches Colico, following the eastern shore of Lake Como at middle mountain level.

Mountain walking allows you to get to know both nature and yourself. It allows you to take a timeout from the grey cement cities and enter into harmony with your surroundings, listening to the sounds and silence of nature, our thoughts and to share these sensations with your travel companions.

Upon arrival back at Varenna around 1pm, you will be a brief walk from where we started at the train station.
