The Lake Como area is a little slice of paradise conveniently located just 1.5 hours away from Milan. If you are visiting the area, this day hike to the top of Monte Bregagno (2107m) is a great way to enjoy the incredible panoramic views that Lake Como is famous for.
This long but technically easy hike involves a 1,050m altitude gain so take into account that you need a good physical condition to participate in the experience. Famous among hikers in the Lombardy area, Monte Bregagno will reward you with panoramic views from the top that we can guarantee will leave you in awe. From this spectacular balcony, we will look down at the lake and will also see the town of Bellagio, the “pearl” of Lake Como.
In total, we will cover 12km and hike for around 6 hours, depending on the group’s resistance and fitness level. Paths are not always well-marked and there are some narrow and steep stretches so the company of a certified guide is highly recommended.
We will stop for a picnic lunch and a short rest at Rifugio Menaggio (1383m) and then continue our hike up to the summit. Although you will probably be exhausted at the end of the day, we promise that the views will totally make up for the effort.
We are experts in the area and cannot wait to share our passion for Lake Como with you and your group. Contact us now and let’s start planning!
