Full description

Live a half-day experience between sport and nature, enjoying a breathtaking panorama of Lake Maggiore and the Borromean Islands. Set off on a panoramic via ferrata accompanied by an experienced mountain guide.

Via ferratas are special mountain routes perched on rocks and overhanging peaks, equipped with ladders, steps, cables, supports and other artificial elements to facilitate passage.

An activity somewhere between trekking and climbing, suitable for everyone as long as you don't suffer from vertigo, because the exposed points are frequent and, together with the thrill of heights, guarantee excitement, adrenalin and unforgettable views!

What we will do

We will meet in Gravellona Toce (VB), meet the guides and the rest of the group and drive to a car park near Baveno, the location of the hike. We will first hold an explanatory briefing on the route, the use of equipment and the techniques for advancing along the via ferrata.

In about 30 minutes of trekking - which will be our warm-up - we will reach the start of the Ferrata dei Picasass, which runs on granite slabs near the Baveno quarries. The itinerary is quite exposed and has several stretches with accentuated verticality, which will however be tackled without any particular criticality, thanks to the guide's support.

About a third of the way along the via ferrata we will encounter one of the most beautiful points of our route: an overhanging ledge, a natural rock 'balcony'... looking out into the void! We will hold our breath for a few minutes to enjoy this incomparable sensation!

We will continue between rocky ridges, sloping slabs, ladders and steps until we reach the culminating point of the via ferrata, Monte Camoscio, which overlooks Lake Maggiore and offers a splendid panorama of the Borromean Islands. After satisfying the view, we descend to the valley via a downhill path that takes about 50 minutes.

The activity lasts 4 hours in total.
