Challenge accepted & mission accomplished!
On May 5th, we helped in the organisation of an extraordinary event on Lake Maggiore involving 1000 young Russian university students. They enjoyed various activities including bicycling, trekking and beach games, without forgetting a visit to our beautiful islands to complete the day!
One day of sports and culture with demanding logistics and a tight time frame. 500 people started off hiking and biking in the Natural Reserve in Feriolo while the other half invaded Isola Bella for a visit to the grandiose Borromeo Palace and garden.
1000 GRAZIE to everyone who helped make this day a big success!
Here we are at the Friedrichshafen fair dedicated to tourism to promote the beauty of our magnificent Lake Maggiore also foreign country!

If you were yesterday, Sunday May 19th 2013, in Stresa or at Lake Maggiore at around 6 p.m., you couldn’t miss this nature’s spectacle!
After so many raining days finally came also a tiny sun through clouds… And like a magic, in the sky appeared two rainbows!
As you can see from the picture, one was a real spectacle… It was like a typical fairy taile rainbow, which made in the sky a perfect arch. Maybe at its end there was also the famous pot full of gold!
The second rainbow hadn’t got so strong colours, but anyway it was always a magic nature’s spectacle!
So, what to add?!? See you next time at Lake Maggiore with an other of these rainbows!
The colours of the rainbow,
so pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces…
of people …going by…

Canyoning with my dad…. I DID IT!!
My name is Sara, I am 12 years old and I live in Bologna and I spent my holiday in Stresa. The three islands are “fantabulanti” more than fantastic, but what struck me most was an organized tour in the mountains near the lake. One day I went with my dad and a group of other people canyoning in Val d’Ossola. Canyoning is a leap into the void, defy the wind and try the irresistible wind of waterfalls in the Ossola Valley. Our guide, David, first asked to wear running shoes and a wetsuit, we walked a bit in the wood, ‘but when we arrived it was beautiful,we jumped from the rocks while we recorded and we took photos.
I am the one who jumped higher then all others, the more excited … I recommend it to everyone, there is also a breathtaking view! Every time I return to Piedmont and Lake Maggiore I will certainly do canyoning again, would recommend to everyone! I love this initiative and hope that other associations also support it because it is really ”fantabulante”! I even wrote on this site because it is great! I wish that other people participate and share this emotion: this is 2 beautiful!!!
Val Grande National Park
The wild and stark Val Grande (“Large Valley”) is a true paradise for the most enthusiastic trekkers. This valley, which stretches from Lake Maggiore to the Vigezzo and Intrasca valleys, was turned into a national park in 1992.
With its lonely mountain peaks and remarkable views, Val Grande is a great place for all kinds of outings (easy, difficult, intermediate levels), allowing trekkers to walk among woods, old mountain pastures and the small villages that are part of this valley’s history.
Our guides will lead you along the old mule-tracks and roads the locals used in the past. Most importantly, you will be able to admire the fantastic landscape of the Alps.
Lake and mountain elements are perfectly combined in the area of Lake Maggiore. Theseven Ossola valleys open onto the shores of the lake and are shadowed by mountain chains with a truly … Read More »
