Outdoor Tour on Lake Maggiore, Italy - Ladies Only

Hosted by


Guided trip
I am Anja. I am very sporty and have spent a lot of time on Lake Maggiore in northern Italy for 30 years. I speak fluent Italian and know the local area very well. For spring/summer 2023, I am planning to offer outdoor tours for women on Lake Maggiore that I will organize and accompany personally. The location is near the small town of Luino on Lake Maggiore, Italy, on the eastern shore of the lake. The idea: The idea is to create a 5-day experience together with outdoor loving women: The focus of the tour is on combined outdoor activities. Hiking, cycling (e-bike rental also possible on site), water sports such as stand-up paddling, swimming, depending on the weather and interests in the group. Length of hikes and cycling tours are adapted to the level of the group. However, hikes of at least 3-4 hours should be possible in terms of fitness. On days with shorter outdoor programs, there will be time in the afternoon for leisure at the lake, exploring, shopping, culture etc.. I will make suggestions for tours for each day depending on the weather and the wishes of the group, which we will then decide together. Together stands for getting personally involved to create a special experience. I open up my private space where we can also stay together during the days. And together also means that we prepare breakfast or cook sometimes. Accommodation: In order to optimally realize the idea of a shared experience, I offer two double rooms with a bathroom each in my flat for the first 4 participants who sign up for a tour. For other interested participants I can organize further accommodation in the vicinity, e.g. rooms in a holiday flat nearby, possibly within walking distance. Or B&B, about 10 minutes away by car. Meals : In the morning: solid breakfast as a basis for the day at my large table. During the day: Snacks in the bar or hut or sometimes out of the backpack In the evening: sometimes eating out in the nearby restaurants, sometimes cooking together at Anja's. Included in the price: - Overnight stay with me in a double room incl. breakfast. - Organization and accompaniment of the activities by me - Health insurance from JoinMyTrip (for Germans and Austrians) For additional rooms, which I would have to book in addition, the costs will probably increase by about 20 to 30 euros p. person and day. Not included in the price: Travel costs, costs for dinner restaurant/pizzeria or for evening cooking, which we will share, snacks and drinks during the day. Sports equipment such as bikes (if you don't bring your own), stand-up paddle, If we plan additional activities in a group with yoga classes or mental fitness, these would be split as I also need to book these in. For traffic and abundance, I plan arrival for Thursday afternoon/evening, 29.6. Departure after the last outdoor day on Monday afternoon/evening 03.07. Arrival By train to Luino, if necessary also Lugano if arrival if timing is coordinated. Or by own car, best in carpools of course. I am looking forward to seeing you!

Trip Itinerary


Day 1-5
The starting point is my flat above the lake, with a wonderful view over the lake and into the mountains. We start our tours into the surrounding area here every morning. For hiking we take the car for the first few kilometers, then up into the mountains with always beautiful views of the lake and mountains. If we decide to go by bike, we start from the house directly. All the following tours are possible suggestions and will be finally chosen and adjusted to the preferences of the participants.


Day 5
A hiking tour - also possible as a "Ride and Hike Tour" - leads us to the peaks above Laveno. We start at a mountain restaurant and begin an approx. 3-hour round hike to the nearby peaks of Laveno with a 360-degree view, sometimes when it is very clear, as far as Milan. At the end of the tour, we can take a snack sitting outside at the mountain restaurant. Or as a ride and hike tour (depending on the group's preferences): We cycle (possible also with E-Bikes) to the mountain restaurant where we can safely leave the bikes. Then we change the cycling shoes into sports shoes and start a short hiking tour of approx. 45 minutes. After returning, there will be enough time for swimming or other activities at the lake.

Curiglia con Monteviasco

Day 5
This hike takes us from Curiglia as the starting point, via the picturesque mountain village of Monteviasco to the ridge trail between Lake Maggiore and Lake Lugano. A brilliant view of both lakes at the same time. This hike is quite long with about 6 hours and a break in between. Here, too, we could combine cycling and hiking. If you are interested, we can plan it as a two-day tour with an overnight stay on an alpine hut.


Day 5
On this tour, we combine boat and hiking. By boat to the other side of the lake from Luino to Cannero, then an approx. 3-hour hike over the mountain ridge to Cannobio. There we can stroll through the town, stop for a bite to eat, go swimming on the beach and then take the ship back to Luino.


Day 5
There are many beautiful tours in the Val Grande National Park on the other, western side of the lake. After a ferry ride across the lake and by car further into the mountains, we can start an approx. 4-5 hour hike from Cicogna over the mountain to the little village of Pagallo. Here we have to provide for ourselves from our backpacks. On the way back we can stop in the beautiful old town of Intra and stroll a bit, include a snack or aperitivo following the preferences of the group.
