There are actually a number of mountains around the lake, so if you’re looking for a more strenuous climb then the Via dei Monti Lariani hiking trail is a good option. This is a long-distance route and stretches out for 125 km. If you’re looking for something shorter, consider a full day hike to Sant’Amate’s church. This hike takes you up a steep incline and gives you awesome views of the lake. The Sentee di Sort half-day hike offers more excellent views of the lake with less time hiking
