Other activities that you can practice on our mountains are hiking and mountaineering, thanks to the presence of countless trails and routes suitable for all levels and abilities. Along the various routes you will find signs and shelters where to eat and rest. In the winter it is possible to practice skiing or snowboarding in different areas: the closest are the Betulle Park, the Giumello Alp, the Cainallo Alp, the Valtorta, the plans of Bobbio and the plans of Arvataggio.
For those who do not like to juggle with skis or snowboard, in these areas it is possible to go for walks with snowshoes.
In fact, group snowshoes are organized periodically in the mountains, daily or evening, accompanied by expert mountain guides who will make you explore in safety our beautiful mountain landscapes.
A few tens of minutes by car or a few train stops are enough to catapult us into an environment that has nothing to envy, for beauty and charm, to the high mountains.
Overlooking the shores of Lake Como, close to the cities, accessible yet wild, home to a glorious tradition of mountaineers and mountain lovers, the Lecco’s Prealps, celebrated by Alessandro Manzoni in his Promessi Sposi, are the mountain of Sundays, of the end week, an opportunity to enjoy relaxation and nature just round the corner. A few tens of minutes by car or a few train stops are enough to catapult us into an environment that has nothing to envy, for beauty and charm, to the high mountains.

In addition, the Alpine Guides are available to give advice to all those who want to approach the mountain safely.
