We invite you to join us on a day hike to Sant’Amate’s church, a small mountain chapel located on a mountain ridge near Lake Como, enjoying breathtaking views over this beautiful lake and the surrounding hills.

This little church is located at 1623 m  above the sea level, on the ridge that leads to the locally famous Monte Bregagno mountain, in the Lombardy region.

The hike takes us through a typical mountain environment from the start. Trees disappear after a while and we will be walking surrounded by grassy pasture. From up  there, we will have a clear, magnificent view over Lake Como and the whole area all around.

Bear in mind this program is suitable for people with a good fitness level. The hike takes 4 to 5 hours and requires a good degree of resistance, although it does not present significant technical difficulties. We will cover a total distance of 5,5 kilometers, with an elevation gain of 650m.

Our team of guides have a deep knowledge of the area around Lake Como, so we can share with you all we know about natural and cultural aspects of this beautiful land. We offer a personalized service, and we can customize the program according to your needs and requirements.

Just send us a request if you’d like to join us on this great day hike. Book your trip and discover the stunning landscapes of the Lake Como area.
