Magic walking around the Italian Lakes

Short walking holiday a deux. Easy logistics, amazing hotel and food, stunning scenery. Robust but doable walking.

Flexible as our needs changed, great recommendations on food, directions and guides totally on point. All we had to do was walk, chat and decompress.

Lake District in Italy

We had an excellent trip in the Lake District in Italy. It is tough to say what was the best part of the trip, the hikes on wonderful trails, the people we met, the fine dining or just traveling with friends.

This was our second trip with On Foot Holidays, the first one was Amalfi Coast. Two very different hikes but we loved them both. I am a stickler on details, especially transportation, getting to and from the airport and the ferry schedule. On advise from On Foot we took a bus from San Sebastion, caught a plane from Bilbao to Milan, caught a bus to Lake Maggiore and a ferry to Isola de Pescatore with no hang ups! They are a well oiled machine, willing to help out in any way possible. I would highly recommend using On Foot Holidays.

Northern Italian Lakes Walking Holiday

Walking holiday around and between two Northern Italian lakes from the old grand tour circuit. Beautiful scenery, comfortable hotels, and a great two-night stop on top of a hill with an incredible restaurant/guest house. The track feels well-worn (no sense of being remote or away from other tourists), but for good reason - it was a lovely walk, and the lakeside towns are long-time tourist areas.

Everything went perfectly smoothly. All travel advice and route notes were excellent; everything as specified. We were treated well at all of our destinations, which speaks well of the tour organizer.

Wonderful walk near Lake maggiore

We did the new On Foot walk from Lake Maggiore to Lake Orta in northern Italy. Walking 4 to 5 hours a day it was a combination of fairly easy climbs, largely in forest, with wonderful views and good accommodation. With a leisurely pace there was time to enjoy the surroundings and there are many other things to do in the area. While not as long or difficult as other On Foot walks we have done we really enjoyed the area and the environment.

On Foot is an exceptionally well organised company with interesting itineraries, good accommodation and excellent walking notes. They offer a personalised service with good communication and support. We have done 6 of their walks and plan to do more

Lakes Maggiore and Orta, Italy

Excellent organisation for transport of luggage to allow all day freedom to walk. All accommodation of good standard and advice on interesting diversions on the walks much appreciated. Route maps invaluable for self-guided tour - we made no mistakes on the routes. We had good weather throughout which made this a delightful experience. Telephone contact from the Italian representative on our arrival at the first hotel was reassuring in case ...

Magical

We walked over 40 Miles...beside lakes and rivers, in the rain and in the sun, up and down mountains, through silver birch and chestnut forests, across meadows, beside ancient stone ruins, along old cobblestone pathways, over bridges, alongside cattle and sheep, through tiny villages and medieval towns, alongside vineyards and tomato gardens ...we walked and chatted with old men picking Porcini mushrooms, and a cattle herder, and waved to locals ...

We saw Italy in a way that you could only do by simply walking and being right in the midst of the nature, the culture, and the people...the entire experience was in a word...MAGICAL!
