Situated in Northern Italy’s Lombardy region, close to the Swiss border and just an hour from Milan is perhaps the most spectacular of the three major lakes. Known for its dramatic scenery, Lake Como has enchanted artists and travellers for centuries with its magnificent landscape. 

Set against the foothills of the Alps and hemmed in on both sides by giant, luxuriant hillsides, there is hardly a place in Europe that evokes such images of beauty, glamour and tranquillity than Lake Como. Shaped like an upside-down Y and measuring around 160km in wavy shoreline, Lake Como is dotted with charming, picturesque villages.

The walking in Lake Como and its neighbouring areas offer the traveller the chance to enjoy a real sense of discovery and witness some truly spectacular scenery. Walks are along old connection paths which run along the lake, through woody hills with their rural settlements, or to the scenic heights of the mountains around Lake Como.

The Walking

We offer a selection of walks that are mainly along old connection paths following ancient cobblestone tracks which run along the lake, through woody hills with their rural settlements, or to the scenic heights of the mountains around Lake Como. Enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the lake.

You can walk entirely at your own pace and we provide extensive walking notes giving distances, route directions, ascents, descents and walking times.
