What you'll do

We will explore and learn about the marvelous surroundings of the hill behind Stresa and admire the view of the Borromean Islands. This is an unbeaten track by many tourists. From Lido di Carciano, we will hike across uphill to the traditional villages of Carciano; then we will jump into the forest before reaching the old and picturesque villages of Someraro, Campino, and Romanico before arriving in Baveno.

The hike has an ascent and descent of 200 meters. The hike is roughly two and a half hours. Despite the stats, we will take our time to explore and learn the area and shoot the best moments to bring memories back home.

Once arrived in Baveno, we will give a little tour around the old town, chilled with a nice refreshment before embarking with the ferry on our way back to Carciano.

  • Identity verified
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 that you will walk right where Romans used to do it 2'000 years ago?
