What you'll do
Everything starts with a biscuit! We, 2 and 4 legged, will meet you at the train station and soon will enter the Spina Verde Natural Park, where we'll be guided on beautiful trails by Pippi or Heidi. On the way, the border collies will be happy to share with you tricks and exercises, and we'll discover together the secrets of the forest of Lago di Como, far from touristic beaten paths in a complete outdoor immersion. A break in a typical "baita" will make us taste some local snacks (ready to share it with the dog..?) and get ready for the last downhill trails. Ending location customized according to your needs. Please note: a minimum fitness is required. You should be comfortable walking on rugged terrains including 300 meters of altitude gain.

Where you'll be
From the meeting point of "Como N. Camerlata" train station (250 meters above sea level), we will soon enter the Spina Verde Regional Park. Walking on marked paths (just the beginning steep uphill) we'll reach the mountain ridge (550 meters above sea level). After a snack in a typical bar, we'll walk downhill back to the starting point or to Como downtown. Ending location customized according to your needs.
