Ready for a 6-day adventure in the middle of a beautiful natural area? Discover three wonderful lakes in Piedmont on this exhilarating trip!

Lake Maggiore, Lake Mergozzo and Lake Orta are three alpine lakes very near each other in the region of Piedmont, in northern Italy. On this 6-day trip, we’ll hike between these lakes and discover the variety of landscapes in the area. There will be fantastic views during the whole journey.

Also, I can offer you the chance to visit the beautiful Borromean Islands, a group of small islands inside Lake Maggiore. Other options to explore could be the lovely gardens of Villa Taranto, the town of Orta San Giulio and San Giulio Island in Lake Orta.

If you decide to come, we can organize our accommodation in small hotels around the lakes. Keep in mind that it’s important to have a very good level of fitness for these hikes as we will face an elevation gain of around 600 meters each day.

So does this program sound exciting? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. I’m sure you’ll love these stunning Italian Lakes in the middle of the Alps!

If you’re looking for shorter programs, you can take a look at these day hikes in Lake Orta and the Ossola Valley.

About the guide

Tour guide, Naturalist Hiking guide, Tour leader, Nordic walking instructor

I obtained a degree in foreign languages and literature specializing in cultural history and Spanish in 2001. After having spent some time abroad and a 9-month study period in Salamanca Spain and working for the Spanish Tourism Authority in Milan in 2005 I has decided to follow my formation by attaining the Tour Guide licence in 2006, Naturalistic Hiking Guide licence in 2007 and a new degree in Tourism Management and Promotion and Tour Leader licence in 2009.

I have been starting working as a professional guide concentrating on naturalistic and cultural excursionistic tourism, carrying out environmental education activity collaborating as a didactic operator with Parks, Agencies and Associations, preparing and leading rehabilitation walking programs for patients with psychotic symptoms. I also participated to programs to promote typical territorial characteristics and produce of Ossola Valley.

At present I’m living in the Ossola Valley at the foot of the Alps behind Lake Maggiore and I’m working as a professional guide specialised on naturalistic and cultural excursionistic sustainable tourism and leading most French, Spanish and American groups on walking and hiking tours on Lakes Como, Maggiore, Orta and Ossola Valleys Alps. In the past years I’m putting my experience as a leader in designing walking tours for travel agencies and tour operators to plan and set new walking itineraries, both guided or self-guided. In 2017 I obtained the licence of Nordic Walking Instructor and in 2018 I’ve obtained the qualification of Official Guide of Val Grande National Park.

Having the licence of both Tour Guide and Naturalistic Hiking Guide gives me the possibility to share different kind of information with my guests, to comply their different interests and to combine days of visits to the ones of hiking.

I love travelling and discovering different places and relative local people, trodding along paths and deeply sensing nature and the mountains. I’m greatly tied to the surrounding territory, I try to show visitors what lies within and without things, taking in the landscape by slowing down the pace, savouring beauty and curiously observing traces of the past which still exist around us.

The areas where I operate:
