Stresa, Italy

Experience hosted by Paolo

5 hours
Includes equipment
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will explore the beauty of Mottarone, the famous mountain right behind Stresa, the Pearl of Lake Maggiore. Mottarone is a very diversified mountain. In our walk, we will put our feet on granite rocks, lush pine forests to vast grasslands. Once at the top, we will fully immerse in one of the most beautiful views of the Alps. You will be able to admire the seven lakes, Monte Rosa Massif, Monviso and if the day is good also the Virgin Mary on top of the Duomo of Milan. It's an experience that only those that hiked up can fully appreciate.

During the whole excursion, you will learn about the history, geography, and culture of the places that we visit and more importantly, you will have a full photoshoot and drone shoot of your experience with me.

The hike has an ascent of 600 meters - fast hikers 2 hours, chilled hikers 4 hours. Despite the stats, we will take our time to explore the area and shoot the best moments to bring memories back home.
Note that, we will need to purchase a 20 euro worth return cable car ticket.

Born and raised in Stresa, I love lakes as much I do for mountains. Since an early age, hiking has been part of my life. I am very curious about local history and tradition. I am in love with photography that I bring my camera to take photos and make videos everywhere I go. By the way, do you know where Mottarone name come from?
