Daily itinerary

Sunday — Arrive Milan Malpensa, visit Sacromonte Varallo

Your trip begins in Milan, one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities, and the gateway to the Italian Lakes District. We’ll meet you at Milan Malpensa International Airport in the morning and we’ll head towards the Italian Alps, standing tall in the distance. After a short drive into the Piedmonte region, the wide plains turn to valleys and the horizon turns jagged as we enter Valsesia – one of the Italy’s least visited but most beautiful valleys. Valsesia’s main centre is Varallo, the largest and first of many stunning towns that line the edges of the Sesia River and narrow side valleys. From Varallo’s town centre, we’ll hike up to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Sacro Monte di Varallo. Built in 1491 by a Franciscan friar, Bernardino Caìmi, Sacro Monte is one of the oldest religious structures in Italy. Perched on a steep hillside above the valley, the intricate architecture and setting is surreal, with fantastic views down to the cobbled streets of Varallo below. With no through road to any other region, the dramatic beauty of Valsesia will reveal itself around every corner as we drive further to Alagna village, our home for the next couple of days and a great location to hike the trails of the incredible Monte Rosa range of the Alps.
Hotel Monterosa, Alagna Valsesia (Lunch, Dinner)
HIKING DISTANCE: 3.2 kilometres (2 miles)
ASCENT: 149 metres (490 feet)
DESCENT: 149 metres (490 feet)

Monday — Hike to Rifugio Crespi

This morning we’ll begin the hike right from our doorstep, making our way through the upper village of Alagna, characterised by its immaculately groomed traditional chalets and cobbled pathways. Leaving the village, we’ll hike up through picture perfect pasture land, passing herds of cows and groves of fir trees. After a short time, we’ll arrive at Rifugio Pastore, a small hamlet which couldn’t be more beautiful if it tried – with exquisite chalets, rolling meadows and the backdrop of the south side of Monte Rosa range straight out in front. A perfect place to stop for a mid-morning espresso! After a short break we’ll continue our hike up through the dramatic Bors Valley, before a short steep hike up onto the Crespi basin – a huge alpine amphitheatre you have to see to believe. Dotted on the sides of the basin are the intact remnants of Walser stone mountain huts, built in 1504. Turning 360 degrees in this stunning plateau reveals the incredible Aguas Biancas waterfall, huge rock faces and the moraine walls of ancient glaciers. After lunch in the plateau, we’ll head back down to Alagna where we’ll have time to rest up and relax in the village before meeting for dinner.
Hotel Monterosa, Alagna Valsesia (All meals)
HIKING DISTANCE: 11 kilometres (7 miles)
ASCENT: 569 metres (1866 feet)
DESCENT: 569 metres (1866 feet)

Tuesday — Hiking the Walser hamlets of Valsesia

Today we’ll hike through and explore the side valleys that drop down into the main valley of Valsesia. In the fifth century A.D. the Walser people (of Germanic origin) settled in Switzerland. They soon made their way across the Alps into Italy and the Valsesia area. Today, the Walser people are still thriving here and we’ll have the chance to hike their trails and explore their communities and surroundings, characterised by hamlets perched on the side of the mountain slopes, century-old chapels and unique architecture. Our hike today will take us into the heart of the side valleys and up onto the ridgelines above the village of Rimella where we’ll have incredible views of the Monte Rosa range. Later, we’ll return to Alagna where the afternoon is yours to explore the village and visit the Walser Museum. Weather permitting, there is an option to take the gondola up to Passo dei Salati at 2987 metres (9800 feet) – a mind-blowing lookout point to the glaciers of the Monte Rosa range.
Hotel Monterosa, Alagna Valsesia (All meals)
HIKING DISTANCE: 11 kilometres (7 miles)
ASCENT: 158 metres (520 feet)
DESCENT: 158 metres (520 feet)

Wednesday — Hike down to Pella, boat to Orta San Giulio

This morning we’ll drive a short distance back down the valley. From Varallo, we’ll say goodbye to the steep green walls of Valsesia and head into the forests of the Vercelli province, passing the beautiful villages of Civiasco and Arola. Our next stop is Madonna del Sasso Sanctuary, a stunning complex built in the early 1700s, overlooking Lake Orta and out towards the Swiss Alps – the views are simply spectacular! After taking in the first of the Italian Lakes from this amazing vantage point, we’ll hike down to the lakeside village Pella where we’ll board a boat across to San Giulio Island – the jewel in the crown of Lake Orta, We’ll have time to stroll the Via del Silenzio pathway around the Island and explore the quiet narrow cobbled streets, quaint courtyards and incredible 12th Century basilica. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time several hundred years! The time travel doesn’t stop there though, as we board our boat again and head a very short distance across to the village of Orta San Giulio, our home for the next couple of nights.
Hotel Santa Caterina, Orta San Giulio (All meals)
HIKING DISTANCE: 4.8 kilometres (3 miles)

Thursday — Sea kayak Lake Orta

After breakfast this morning, we’ll take to the lake by sea kayak and paddle past the numerous villages that dot the shoreline. Enveloped by dark green woodlands and old settlements, Lake Orta is the quietest of the Italian Lakes, making it the perfect place to stop off for a lakeside espresso and take in serene village life. Later we’ll return to Orta San Giulio where there’s time to walk the lakeside pathway and stroll up the cobbled pathways to the Sacro Monte chapels overlooking the village and across the western shores of Lake Orta – the views are breath-taking! If you’re keen to carry on paddling today, there’s plenty of opportunity to go a little further with our guides after we return to Orta San Giulio.
Hotel Santa Caterina, Orta San Giulio (All meals)
SEA KAYAKING DISTANCE: 11.3 kilometres (7 miles)

Friday — Hike to Stresa, Lake Maggiore

This morning we’ll drive a short distance to Armeno, a quaint village nestled in the foothills of the Motterone mountain range, which runs the whole length of Lake Orta and divides it from Lake Maggiore – our next destination. We’ll set off from Armeno, hiking through chestnut and birch forests, clusters of stone houses and pastureland. After arriving in the village of Gignese, we’ll meet our vehicle and drive down through the opulent neighbourhoods overlooking Stresa and Lake Maggiore. The perfectly manicured gardens and stylish villas perched on the steep slopes above Lake Maggiore are an incredible sight! We’ll head to our accommodation in Stresa. There’s time to soak in the atmosphere of the narrow streets and lake promenade before we meet for dinner in one of the many charming cobbled squares.
Hotel Lido Perla Negra, Stresa (All meals)
HIKING DISTANCE: 11 kilometres (7 miles)
ASCENT: 424 metres (1392 feet)
DESCENT: 297 metres (973 feet)

Saturday — Hiking Val Grande National Park

Today we’ll hike through the largest wilderness area in Italy – the Val Grande National Park. Along a panoramic trail into the conifer forests and alpine meadows of the area, we’ll enjoy incredible views of the craggy peaks of the Alps to the north, and the blue waters of Lake Maggiore to the south. Where our hikes in the days before have passed through villages, our hike today is all about the wilderness and the combination of silence and grand views. Afterwards we’ll head back to Stresa where you’ll have the chance to explore the variety of local restaurants.

Sunday — Journey to Lake Como, hike to Vezio Castle

This morning we’ll head to Lake Como – Italy’s most dramatic and iconic lake. Our home for the next couple of days is Bellagio, one of the most beautiful lakeside towns in the world. It’s easy to fall in love with this place. Called “Pearl of the Lake”, Bellagio sits on the peninsula where the western and eastern arms of the lake meet and is surrounded by exuberant gardens, a maze of steep stone staircases, gorgeous lake-side squares and incredible views to the Alps. If you’re keen to hike today, we’ll take a short boat ride across to the village of Varenna with its famous pastel coloured houses that seem to defy the laws of physics, perched on the steep green slopes that rise straight up from the lake. From here we’ll hike on the cobbled pathway and trail up to the hamlet of Vezio. The centre-piece of this tiny settlement is the Vezio Castle, the remains of a fortified watchtower built in the middle ages. The views from up here are spectacular. Later we’ll walk back down to Varenna before catching the boat back across to Bellagio, where you’ll be able to choose from a variety of local restaurants for your evening meal.

HIKING DISTANCE: 4.8 kilometres (3 miles)

Monday — Sea kayaking Lake Como

The steep walls of the Alps, dropping straight down into the clear waters of the lake, with stunning villages and coves dotted along the edges are a sight to behold. Around every corner, more and more of Lake Como’s charm reveals itself. You’ll be itching to explore! Explore is exactly what we’ll do, and all from a sea kayak, as we glide past the incredible coves, 17th Century houses and gardens that dot the lakeside – if there was a more perfect example of man-made structures and the natural environment coming together, we’re yet to see it! After our paddle, we’ll have time to soak in the charm and beauty of Bellagio village.

Useful Info

No Forced Single Supplement:

Most other travel companies charge all solo travellers a single supplement fee. We don't! When it comes to accommodation, our trip fares are based on a twin-share rate, which means we'll match you up with another person of the same gender to share a room with. If there's no one suitable to share with, there's no forced single supplement!

Trip Start:

If you arrive on the first day of your trip, we can either pick you up from our joining hotel at 10:30am or the Milan Malpensa airport (MXP) at 11am.

Trip End:

On the last day of your trip we’ll drop you off at Milan Malpensa airport in time for afternoon flights. You can book a flight home departing anytime after 1pm on this day. If you’re staying on in Milan, we’ll be happy to book you extra accommodation and drop you off at our joining hotel.

Fitness:

We’ve designed this trip to be fun, challenging and varied. Our trips aren’t scenic bus journeys where you observe from a window, or stand on a touristy viewing platform to take pretty pictures. We’ll get you into the back country to experience the Lakes District scenery up close, either by foot or kayak, so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness to enjoy yourself. Age and experience are not important, so you don’t need to be young or extremely fit but you should be in the habit of doing some regular exercise. So get out there with a daypack on a short day hike from time to time and you’ll be ready to join us.

Transport:

Italy is a small country, but not quite small enough to get around under your own steam the whole time.  We have our own comfortable air-conditioned vans with plenty of room to stretch your legs. Our guides make every journey informative and fun and may even play some local Italian music along the way. The great thing is, you won’t be expected to be spending long periods of time in a vehicle anywhere on this trip - getting around the Lakes District will be largely up to you with your hiking boots on!

Reviews

  • Dolce Vita 2016

    “We have taken many trips in our 60+ years to places across the United States, Canada, South America, Asia, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. Our trip with Active Adventures to the Italian Lakes District and our extended visit in Italy has to be in our top three if not our favorite trip of all time! It was definitely Dolce Vita, the SWEET LIFE. The Italian Alps and the Lakes, the hikes and the paddling were certainly up to Active Adventure’s high standard. The beauty of the mountains and the Lakes and the invigorating way we experienced them were fantastic! The things that set this trip apart and put it over the top were the culture, food, and history of the region. Having the combination of Andy, our New Zealand guide, and Enrico, our native Italian, was awesome. Enrico helped us understand first-hand the Italian people and their way of life and gave us insights and access to more than we could imagine. It seemed everywhere we went, they all knew Enrico. The food experiences were unbelievable. The small size of our group and the relationship we built made it seem as if we were family and friends completing a once in a lifetime adventure. I can’t give enough kudos to Active Adventure these two guides for this marvellous experience.”
    Ernest Alphin – North Carolina, United StatesOctober 2016
  • Best trip ever!

    “Spectacular! There is just no other way to describe this trip. Gorgeous scenery, wonderful company and amazing guides. Andy & Enrico did an incredible job and I can't say enough positive things about them. Great job guys! Thank you so much for a fabulous trip. This has been my 3rd trip with Active and is the best to date!”
