Hiking and cycling

The detailed 1:50,000 scale maps from the KOMPASS publishing house are a must for hikers and cyclists. They are GPS-accurate, include mountain bike tours and all mountain huts and refuges. If you are on holiday at the northern tip of Lake Como and also want to visit the Valtellina, you will need the map Chiavenna / Val Bregaglia in addition to the map Lago di Como / Lago di Lugano. The Lecco / Valle Brembana map covers the arm of the lake near Lecco and the area to the east of it.
The maps are accompanied by a small travel guide & insider tips with descriptions of the villages and towns as well as the scenic attractions.

Even more accurate maps at a scale of 1:25000 are available from Ingenia Editori. The maps can be bought from time to time. More reliable is ordering on the internet, e.g. at or

Travel guide for the handbag

A classic is the handbag-suitable travel guide Upper Italian Lakes from the tried-and-tested Marco Polo series.

Recommended for a first overview of Lake Como and Lake Lugano with helpful background information.

Suitable for a first holiday on Lake Como, especially for travellers with little time. Your all-in-one travel companion: travel guide & insider tips.

Travel guide for explorers

Holidaymakers with more time and a love of discovery are best advised to pick up the comparatively new travel guide by Eberhard Fohrer. Very clearly structured, it convinces with numerous and up-to-date descriptions. If you have already spent several holidays on Lake Como, you will certainly not be bored next time with this book in your luggage.

Positive: The chapter “Small Hiking Guide” contains eight hikes from longer walks to the ascent of Monte Legnone, including map extracts.

Motorbike Tours

Travel guide & insider tips for motorcyclists.

Are you looking for winding roads, good weather and a motorbike-friendly environment with surprising views of Lake Como? Then visit the well-maintained roads along the challenging mountain routes close to the coast to Lake Como. An ideal area for motorcyclists.

If only it weren’t for the tour planning! The Upper Italian Lakes motorbike guide promises to help, with road books, maps, a travel guide and insider tips.

A clear advantage:

Some of the tours go beyond the immediate vicinity of the lakes, and the clearly laid out road books fit into any petrol tank bag.

Hiking guide

Was there anything else besides the lake? Oh yes, the mountains around Lake Como with peaks over 2000 metres high. Sounds exhausting, but it doesn’t have to be if you have the brand-new hiking guide with the most beautiful mountain and hiking tours in your rucksack. The book from the Zwischenräume publishing house is not primarily aimed at holidaymakers with alpine experience, but at those who want to discover hiking and nature in the hinterland of Lake Como. Travel guide & insider tips in one. Just reading the book makes you want to go right away!

A clear advantage:

Good selection of 20 detailed individual tours with many variations as well as six detailed stage hikes.

Mountain Bike Tours

The mountains around Lake Como can also be conquered on a mountain bike. Chestnut forests, forest paths, challenging single trails and mountain villages barely touched by tourism make every tour a pleasure for all the senses.

The Bike Guide with a good 30 tours including GPS data and description is a must for every mountain biker. Small restriction: beginners or less experienced bikers will reach their limits on one or the other crunchy trail or prefer to dismount beforehand and push a few metres.
