Francesca led us on a wonderful walk up Mont Gronia last week. She is a great guide, with a lot of local knowledge, so it was really interesting. She walked at our pace and was fun to be with. Would highly recommend.

Thank Highdays

If you want to hike in the Lake Como area then this is the way to do it. Francesca was excellent from first email contact all the way through; thoroughly recommended :-)
She suggested various hiking options and we decided on Legnoncino which was a great walk to the top with superb 360 views. All in all a great day with a very knowledgeable guide.

If you enjoy walking, it would be a real shame to visit lake Como and not to do a good hike to get a proper breath of fresh air and enjoy the beautiful views. Now, why not do it with the nicest and the most professional guides out there - Francesca and Mario !
Usually they split the hikes depending on the area - Francesca does the south of the lake and Mario the north. We were meant to do ours with Francesca and had numerous email exchanges to prepare the hike but due to unforeseen circumstances on the day she could not make it and Mario stepped in on short notice.
Mario was absolutely fantastic - friendly, professional, knowledgeable about the region and other things (like plants). We spent a very pleasant half day, learnt a few things and enjoyed breathtaking views of lake Como from 3000 feet.
Highly recommended.

Six of us at various hiking levels hiked with Francesca in October and all had a wonderful time. She planned the perfect day long hike, met us without a problem, on time and she was flexible to meet everyone's needs. She is tiny but packed a huge and delicious lunch for all of us, complete with linens and stainless cutlery. She was good natured and friendly and made everyone feel as if they had her full attention. A fabulous day as a result of her hard work and good cheer.
