You may already be familiar with some our road biking routes from Varenna, like the famous Into the Wild and Valsassina: Valley of Cheese routes. However, nearly all of our new routes are partially or for the most part off-road! The famous climb to Passo Agueglio at 1,173m a.s.l. begins just across the street from the Varenna ferry, and the entire climb can be done on the road or mostly trail. The view from the top (and on the way) is one of the best on Lake Como, definitely worth the climb!
Our new biking routes range from easy to epic in terms of technical difficulty. All of the routes are difficult in terms of elevation gain given the mountainous terrain, so for this reason we recommend renting an Electric MTB unless you are used to riding frequently in the mountains! Check out our new routes from our E-MTB/MTB routes page.
Did you know that some of the best hiking itineraries can also be found on the Lake Como's Eastern branch? There is even the famous Sentiero del Viandante or "Wayfarer's trail" that runs from Lecco all the way to Colico at the top of Lake Como, with consistent views of the lake from above. We recommend taking a day to hike part of this trail, we have divided it into 5 sections, each part is equally as beautiful and easy to reach to start/finish where you like given the Train line that also runs from Lecco to Colico. Gabriele is also a certified hiking guide. Contact us to reserve a guided hiking tour on this famous trail!
