Winter on Lake Como is great!

 

Not too crowded as in summer, with unforgettable landscape thanks to the snow and perfect for some sports.

Here we suggest you 6 things to do during the cold months:

Walking on the snow

Taking a walk with snow shoes is becoming increasingly popular because it is not a very challenging activity while allowing you to breath some fresh anc clean air and admire nature at a slower pace. We suggest the walk of The Dorsale from Bellagio to Brunate, it takes about 8 hours but you can stop on the way for eating and sleeping in local “Locande”.

Skiing

Over 50 kilometers of skiing lanes that you can tread with skis, on foot or snowboard. There are also 20 km dedicated to nordic track enthusiasts. Let’s not forget about the alpine skiing tracks and the different solutions available for telemark lovers. For example you can go to Piani di Bobbio on the Lecco side of the lake (if you want to have more information please read Winter in Bellagio)

Lunching in a typical mountain lodge

…order a plate of authentic mountain food, from pizzoccheri to polenta, or perhaps a cutting table of cheese and cold cuts paired with a glass of good wine. You will discover that home cooking can be a life-changing experience. You can visit Rifugio Martina.

Take a boat tour     

 Always charming and unforgettable, thanks to the landscape made by mountains and lake. From 2018 many monuments on the lake are lightened with colorful light in the Christmas season. This is a great opportunity to take a boat tour also by night. Check the information here Lake Como boat

Ice skating

                In almost all the main cities on the lake it is possible to ice skating thanks to the equipment sat during Christmas season. A cool idea while sightseeing all along the lake. You can choose between Lecco and Como.

Shopping

You can choose between Como, Lecco and also Milan (where you can go by train or car in just one hour!). And till March you can enjoy sales on Italian fashion brands!
