History and Nature of Lake Como

Hike the trails of “Spina Verde” Natural Park with a naturalistic guide and discover Lake Como off the beaten path

Meet your naturalistic guide of Parco Regionale Spina Verde and Geological Park Breggia near Como. This trekking is perfect if you want to escape the touristic beaten paths and live the authentic atmosphere of “Lago di Como”, with a complete outdoor immersion into history and nature, from a privileged point of view. You will walk up and downhill on the trails of “Spina Verde” Natural Park, a protected area surroundings Como and its lakeshore, and you will discover, touching the “gonfolite” stone, where and how our ancestors who lived in the area 3.000 years ago settled their homes.

The breathtaking view from the top of Monte Croce will get you to know the Alpine geography, the panorama of high mountains diving into the lake, and the city’s everyday life scrolling just below us, meanwhile a break in a typical “baita” will make you taste some local food and get ready for the last downhill trail taking us, in about 40 minutes, into Como downtown. 

Here our adventure will end, but you’ll be free to wander through the city’s narrow lanes & the picturesque lakefront with a new point of view… before taking the train back to Milan. Remember shoes & clothing suitable for mountain trails!
