What you'll do

"FILL YOUR LIFE WITH EXPERIENCES, NOT THINGS. HAVE STORIES TO TELL NOT STUFF TO SHOW " Lake Como is a paradise for hikers, but visiting with a guide will ensure you take in all the best viewpoints. There is a good network of trails in the area. We will walk together along the charming SENTIERO DEL VIANDANTE trail (Wanderer’s Path) winding through scenic chestnut woodlands and olive groves well worth the view of the water below. You'll soon find yourself immersed within a pretty dense forest without having to exert too much energy. For the adventurers out there, be prepared to enter the Italian backcountry, make new friends and really do some exploring. You'll really feel far-removed from the city on this hike, and your reward is more than just a great view, but a solid sense of accomplishment! If you are looking for a deeper experience than a simple hike I invite you to join me through a beautiful journey where I will help you turn down the noise that disrupts the quiet of your heart and encourage each of you to share your stories. We all need a break from this noise. We should be out more, where things are simpler and every breath is a reminder that there is beauty and magic left in this world. REMEMBER: CHOOSE TO BE, RATHER THAN TO HAVE. CHOOSE TO LIVE AND CREATE UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES, RATHER THAN TO EXIST. MEMORIES REMAIN A WHOLE LIFETIME, THINGS DO NOT !

"HAPPINESS COMES FROM EXPERIENCES, NOT MATERIAL THINGS" I’ve always been drawn to this quote, with its clean lines and meanings and the quiet peace it brings. I believe that it’s living by this quote that we are able to make it happen. I am a local licensed nature tour guide and tour leader with more than 6 years experience in what we call “ Experiential Tourism”. I am a globetrotter, I have always travelled the world with a rucksack on my back, defining the length of stay based on the emotions and sensations that each destination provided. I strongly believe that to really know a country you have to live, eat and talk with the locals. I BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE. EACH ENCOUNTER MAKES US RICHER. We all have a light inside of us that if merged with the one of our travel companion will brighten our path.
