SPORT AND ACTIVITIES FOR ALL
ENJOY OUR WONDERFUL NATURE
SPORT AND FREE TIME
For sport lovers or who simply wants to have fun, offered opportunities for entertainment are many on the upper Lake Como
For who are seeking a holiday of relax and peace in the open air, in front of the Hotel you will find sandy beaches with the possibility of bathing and an extensive green area. Particularly, there is a wonderful and long (20km ca) lakeside promenade, ideal to walk or cycle using our free bikes, enjoying a magnificent postcard landscape...
The North Lake Como area, particularly Sorico, offers the best paths for walking and trekking lovers, thanks to the presence of well marked trails of different altitudes and difficulties between the Alps surrounding us. The most important are the "Via dei Monti Lariani" (first stage starts in Sorico) and the more challenging "Alta Via dei Monti Lariani", but there are many other paths starting in front of the hotel that do not require any particular physical and technical skills. If necessary, we can give you a backpack and prepare for you sandwiches, fruit and drinks, beyond useful tips and maps.
For mountain bike lovers, there are many marked trails for all desires and capabilities. From the easy and flat cycle-tracks along Lake Como (about 20km from Sorico to Cremia) to the longest "Sentiero Valtellina" as far as Bormio (over 115km) and "Ciclabile della Valchiavenna" (over 40km) as far as the Switzerland, plus the more challenging but suggestive mountain roads and mule tracks overlooking the lake to explore. All in complete peace and security, far from cars and always immersed in terrific natural sceneries.
Thanks to the "breva", a thermal and constant wind blowing from the lake, our area is rather windy and cool in summer and therefore much appreciated by practicians of all water sports It is a paradise for windsurfing, kitesurfing, sailing, waterski, stand up paddle and quiet outgoings by kayak along river Mera or on the Lake Como. Only a few steps from the hotel, it is possible to attend courses, rent canoes, boats and various kinds of equipment.
Our area represents the only wonderful and convenient opportunity to live the flight experience over Lake Como by paragliding or hang-gliding. If you are looking for special emotions, we recommend you a safe and beautiful tandem flight with a professional pilot at special prices for our guests. Trust us and you will thank us for the tip! Our take-offs have a privileged view on Lake Como, they are easily reachable by car in less than 30 minutes from the hotel and it's even possible to land along the beach in front!
In front or near the hotel, you will find: - a football and rugby field - a tennis court (free rental equipment) - a roller skating rink for children - a beach volleyball field - a big public outdoor swimming pool (10 min walking) - a basketball field In the nearby, there is also an adventure park for children and the possibility to do canyoning, rafting and climbing. Inside the "Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve" is possible to do horse riding and, for photography fans, do birdwatching.
