Above the beautiful town of MenaggioMonte Bregagno (2107 m) has a wonderful view of Lake Como and the Alps. In fact, we get to appreciate the 4000s of Switzerland.

The hike starts in Breglia. Then, the route goes along a sometimes steep path up to Sant’Amate. There the track becomes gentle and wide, following the ridge of the mountain until the top. On the way back, following the ridge at the foot of Monte Grona, we will have a break at the Rifugio Menaggio, located at an altitude of 1400 m. Here the landscape over Bellagio and the central area of the lake is fantastic.

ITINERARY: Breglia – Sant’Amate – Monte Bregagno – Rifugio Menaggio
Duration: 6 hours
Altitude change: 1000 m

The highlights of this trip are:
– Stunning 360° panorama
– A quiet and peaceful environment even though we are only a few km away from the lakeside
– A good and balanced training, not too easy nor too demanding

About the guide

guide profile img

My name is Elisabetta but everyone calls me Betty. I'm Italian but based in Lugano Ticino, in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. I graduated in Environmental Science. Besides Italian, which is my native language, I also speak English and German.

I felt in love with the mountains as a child, during my first experience in the snow and tree climbing in my Grandpa's garden. Now many years have gone by, but my passion is still as strong!

I covered many trails and paths in the Alps as Monviso Ring, Monte Rosa Trek, Bernina Trek, Altavia n1 Dolomiti...

I've been to Patagonia (Hielo Continental Sur), Tanzania (Kilimanjaro 5985m), Nepal (Khumbu Valley), Bulgaria (Rodope), Canada (Quebec's Parks), Morocco (Toubkal 4167m), Spain (Sierra Nevada Mulhacen 3479m), Ireland (Carrantuohill 1.39m & Kerry Ring), Norway (Tromso), Mt. Elbrus (5642m) so far….

Since 2010 I’m an UIMLA Mountain Leader now joint to the Swiss organization ASAM and Nordic Walking instructor. I propose daily and weekly hiking tours between Como (Italy) and Lugano (Switzerland) and in the central part of the Alps from San Gottardo (CH) to Stelvio pass. Especially in Graübunden – Engadin (CH) and Valtellina (I).

No matter the season, any time of the year is good for hiking and exploring, so let’s do it together!!!
