BAROQUE ON THE LAKE

The Borromeo Islands are a small group of islands. They owe their name to the Borromeo family, who had owned them since the 12th century. The group consists of five islands, located near the towns of Pallanza and Streza.

The best way to explore them is with a hop-on hop-off boat tour. You can buy a day ticket from the local ferry company. The boats run between the individual islands for the entire day. For those who prefer something a little more exclusive, a sunset tour on a sailing boat is recommended.

  • Isola Madre is the largest.

  • Isola Bella is said to be the most beautiful.

  • Isolino di San Giovanni is more of an islet and, with a diameter of 140m and two inhabitants, tiny.

  • Isola dei Pescatori is a fishing village.

  • Scoglio della Malghera is the smallest and uninhabited.

GIVE CLIMBING A TRIAL

The Via Ferrata dei Picasass is the only climbing route on Lago Maggiore. This route is not particularly difficult and leads up the Monte Camoscio (890m) in a very scenic location.

Starting point is Baveno on Lago Maggiore. There is a small car park just above the Camping Tranquilla in Baveno.

You walk uphill in a westerly direction on the hiking trail M3. After a short walk in the forest, you come to the turnoff for the via ferrata.

The entrance to the Ferrata Picasass is a smooth but sloping slab that is secured with many clamps. From there, you can already enjoy a great view. Then, walk until you reach a cave, where the next long row of clamps follows.

Continue upwards, somewhat steeper and with stimulating traverses and further beautiful ascents, until you reach the exit at a plateau, where the climbing book is located. Continue to the final long rope bridge (can be bypassed). From there, you can see the summit cross of Monte Camoscio.

From the summit, a short descent to the nearby Rifugio and back to Baveno via the M3 hiking trail in 1.15 hours.

WINTER CAMPING - SKIING ON LAGO MAGGIORE

In winter, the splendid ski area of Mottarone, very close to our campsite, attracts many winter sports enthusiasts who find the best conditions. The winter sports area lies at an altitude of 1,269 m to 1,491 m between Lago Maggiore and Lago Orta. Mottarone can be easily reached by car, by aerial tramway or by cable car from Stresa Lido.

For skiing and snowboarding, there are over 15 kilometres of pistes on the Mottarone, offering everything you wish for an optimal day in the snow. Advanced skiers will get their money's worth here. However, there is also plenty of winter fun for beginners and children on Mottarone, including a school camp for the little ones and bobsleighs, sledges and snowshoes for those who don't want to ski. You can rent the perfect equipment at a rental station, the "Ski Rent Mottarone".

During a break between runs, you can enjoy the fresh, clear mountain air and the breathtaking view over the mountains and Lago Maggiore, or you can take refreshment in the form of a hearty meal typical of the area.

There are other fascinating ski areas waiting to be conquered. Among the most beautiful slopes are those in the ski area of Macugnaga-Monte Rosa. Several chairlifts and slopes, some of which are artificially snowed, ensure that the ski area can be skied well and safely throughout the winter season. On a magic carpet at the valley station, children and beginners can practise safe skiing before venturing up the mountain. Get to know our campsite in winter. You will be thrilled.
