Tour description

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

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Sentiero del Viandante, Varenna, Lake Como, LombardyThis 4 hour guided trekking 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 us to get to know both nature and ourselves. It allows us to take a timeout from the grey cement cities and enter into harmony with our surroundings, listening to the sounds and silence of nature, our thoughts and to share these sensations with our travel companions.The Sentiero del Viandante is ideally divided into 3 or 4 stages: what we suggest is the Bellano - Varenna part, which is one of the most scenic ones. During this experience you will have the time to relax and savour some delicious local tastings: salame, cheeses, vegetables, accompanied with bread to finish with something sweet.A professional guide will meet you in Varenna, where you will take the train to reach Bellano. You will then start your 3-hour hiking back to the starting point in Varenna. Duration: 4 hours
