Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

2. Val Senagra: The Enchanted Valley Tour

The Senagra Valley is one of the most beautiful and lesser known places in the Lake Como area. Here, the Senagra River flows sometimes placid, sometimes impetuous. On this tour, you'll start by leaving the center of Menaggio as your guide takes you on a discovery of this magical place.  During your walking tour, see a blend of naturalistic beauty and important traces of historical activity. A simple walk through the ancient hamlet of Loveno where you will come across narrow alleys suddenly opens up to spectacular views of the lake and important historical villas. Continuing towards the heart of the valley, magical and little frequented, you will meet a suspended bridge and evidence of the productive history of this place. Visit an old brick factory, now converted into a museum, and an old needle factory which is now a restaurant and trout/sturgeon farm. Get to visit the farm in the company of the owner before sitting down together to taste the typical products of this amazing farm.

My daughter and I booked this tour on a short visit to Como. It was by far the best part of our trip. It was so scenic and we felt we saw many hidden gems and embraced the local culture during this short tour that we would not have seen otherwise. Luigi was so knowledgeable and friendly. It was a really relaxed and fun experience and the bikes were amazing to ride also. The route was just fab!!! We would highly recommend!!

The guide fit us well with bike gear and explained the e-bike functions before starting. He was knowledgeable about the trails and provided history of the area. He made the trip very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this service to all.

Highly recommend! Luigi kept us off the busy roads and offered us a glimpse into smaller villages along the way to the lake Lugano.

Luigi was incredible with our group adhering to safety and fun. Thank you for being so conscientious

Super great experience, an unforgettable day. Luigi was a great guide.
