Discovering Lake Maggiore in canyoning
A weekend full of sports and adventure to have fun with your best friends at Lake Maggiore! Who said that at Lake Maggiore there's nothing to do?! Many opportunities to practice outdoor sports and activities surrounded by nature! We combined for you an "adrenaline" activity, but for everyone, and a visit a little bit more classical. Sport and culture the perfect mix for all kind of friends you may have: no excuses... you have to invite all of them!
1st day: Arrival at Lake Maggiore
Arrival and accommodation in a 3-star-hotel at Lake Maggiore. Tasty dinner at "Lo Stornello" Restaurant, located in the heart of Stresa, the "Pearl of Lake Maggiore" overlooking the enchanting Borromean Gulf.
2nd day: Canyoning in the Ossola Valley
After breakfast starts an exciting day of "extreme" sports. The day is dedicated to the practice of canyoning: an adventurous descent through torrents in a setting of ravines, natural pools and slides. Without using any kind of boats, but only diving deep in the water with wetsuit, helmet and harness, followed step by step by expert alpine guides. Exciting dives and slides… It’s like a natural water park! The Ossola Valley near Lake Maggiore is full of hidden places, ideal to practice this sport! It might seem like an activity or a sport "only for the brave", but don’t worry, with a little bit of courage anyone can do it, always watched over by an expert alpine guide! After a hectic day, a quiet dinner is what you need!
3rd day: Borromean Islands*
You start your day with the visit of the famous Borromean Islands, to spend a day a little bit more quiet again "on the water". From Stresa departure by motorboat to reach the "Isola Bella" (Beautiful Island) with its wonderful Baroque palace and Italian style garden. Then you reach the "Isola Superiore dei Pescatori" (Fishermen's Island) with its typical fishermen's village.
