TREKKING THREE DAYS IN THE OROBIE ALPS, ITALY

EXPERIENCE A GENUINE PART OF ITALY, A REAL MOUNTAIN TREKKING WITH ACCOMMODATION AT RIFUGIO

The fantastic Italian Orobie Alps! This short week has 3 days of challenging hiking with 2 nights at Italian mountain stations called Rifugio.
The Orobie Alps are known for their beautiful views and great contrasts with barrenness, green fields and steep mountain walls and it is a wonderful challenge you have in front of you. The Alps around Bergamo are a bit unexplored area with fewer tourists and less organized. We hike with a local mountain guide and Swedish tour guide who lives in the valley. You carry your luggage yourself and have well-fitted hiking boots, a good backpack and poles for those who wish.
