A TREKKING TRIP WITH LUGGAGE TRANSPORT AND FULL SERVICE
We walk across the mountains!! From beautiful Val Brembana we cross the mountains, up and down different valleys to reach our goal - The great Lake of Como!
This trekking tour gives you both high peaks, beautiful views and the charm of small towns with shops and everyday life. We start in the small valley Val Brembana and go up into the mountains and simply transport ourselves by feet, all the way to beautiful Como lake. Standing on the last mountain top and looking out over the lake and the steep mountains on the opposite side leaves no one without pace!
At the lake we end our four-day trekking and dedicate ourselves to enjoying the sun and everything that goes with it.
The hike is adapted for luggage transport between our accommodations along the road so you bring a small daypack with a exchange of clothes and today's picnic, the rest of the luggage is waiting at our next accommodation.
