Lake Como provides fantastic opportunities in all these sports and abundant facilities, often with schools and equipment rental on site. Races and regattas take place regularly. Water sport enthusiasts, (especially the professionals), can indulge themselves practically the whole year round. The awe inspiring mountains of the Lombard region are an open invitation to go walking, hiking, climbing and Nordic walking.

Rock climbing over rugged rock formations with some steep challenging rock faces provide plenty of excitement for climbers.
In winter, a ski touring paradise opens up in the “sugar mountains” around Lake Como. Wonderful ski routes, off the groomed slopes and into the loose powder snow with breathtaking views all the way make for a memorable experience.
