Are you looking for a Nature & Adventure tour in Varenna, on Lake Como?
A 5-hour Hike & Kayak experience led by Nadia, a licensed Local Nature Hiking Guide, from Varenna.
We start by exploring Varenna, its pastel coloured houses, the small ancient streets and the walkway of Lovers. From Varenna, along a mountain trail we hike to the Vezio Castle, a fortified watchtower from the middle ages perched on the steep green slopes that rise straight up from the lake. Nature and the panoramic views here are spectacular.
From the Castle along the mountain trail down to Varenna, where the kayak experience awaits us. Starting from the Riva Grande, we paddle to the hamlet of Fiumelatte, kayaking along the lakeside: a different point of view where the villages seem like a coloured postcard, the gardens of the world famous Villas are a nature explosion of colours and scents.
A short break for a refreshing drink awaits us in Fiumelatte, before kayaking back to Varenna.
