Via Ferrata


We have a partnership with Alberto , a certified local mountain guide.

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or a climbing pro! We organise day activities based upon your level and experience. Never tried rock climbing?? Here is your chance! We will provide all the necessary equipment and will teach you all the basics for an enjoyable afternoon of fun by the lake, in the local crag of the village.

If you've only ever climbed indoors, or if you've always relied on others to organise your climbing adventures, this could be the course for you! We will focus on developing the essential skills for independent rock climbing at a single-pitch venue.

Alternatively, if you are an experienced climber, we can organise a day trip to the best climbing routes in the Alps.

For "via ferrata" lovers we can organise the special ascent to Monte Grona by the local via ferrata.

We provide all information needed at the hostel.

Via Ferrata


If you are in search of an adventure join Alberto and go canyoning with your new hostel friends.

It is definitely one of the funniest activities you can practise around the area: canyons that are ideal for canyoning are often cut into the bedrock stone, forming narrow gorges with numerous drops, beautifully sculpted walls, and sometimes spectacular waterfalls. The area around Lake Como is full of canyoning routes that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels.

Ask the hostel staff for more information.

Sailing is possible according to the indipendent instructors availability, mostly on weekends and during summer holidays and obviously according to the weather and safety conditions. Please contact us well before your arrival to arrange sailing.

Guests wishing to sail with us should first join our Sporting Association for a nominal fee which can be done at the hostel.

Join us on our "Introduction to Sailing Course". The course consists of 2 full days of theory and practical sailing on Lake Como (weather depending), followed by a third (optional day) navigating the lake.
