Sport and leisure in Como

Cycling around Bologna


As one of the most popular lakes in Italy, Lake Como is filled with all kinds of adventure sports and outdoor activities– on the water, on land and in the air.

So unless you’re visiting the Lake for total relaxation or sightseeing, here are some of the most popular adventure sports and activities available on Lake Como: water sports such as sailing at the Yacht Club Sailing School Como, water skiing, windsurfing and canoeing.

For those who love the sun, beach and swimming, we recommend the Lido of Cernobbio with a swimming pool  and the lido of Como located within two magnificent villas: Villa Olmo and Villa Geno.  You can find also free beaches up to the lake. Lake Como is nestled between green valleys and mountains of over two thousand meters in altitude; surrounding the lake are miles of hiking and nature trails that wind through villages, forests and along the many beaches. The best way to discover and enjoy this heritage and natural landscape is to follow these trails either on foot, with a mountain bike or on horseback.

For families travelling with small children, we suggest a trip to Swissminiatur located on the shores of Lake Lugano in Switzerland with over 120 scale models representing Switzerland's heritage including the nation's most famous buildings, monuments and means of transport.
