KITE WIND SURF COMO LAKE

KITESURF AND WINDSURF IN ALTO LARIO, IN THE WATERS OF LAKE COMO

 

Everyone here knows the "Breva", the wind coming from the south that blows in the northern area of Lake Como, the Alto Lario, a true guarantee for kitesurfers and windsurfers.

During the summer the "Breva" guarantees pure fun, for many hours of the day, from mid-morning to late afternoon.

 

 

So, where can you practice kitesurfing and windsurfing on Lake Como?

The villages and lidos of Gera Lario, Domaso, Colico, and Sorico, located in the northern area of Lake Como, called Alto Lario, are perfect places for kitesurfers and windsurfers, especially those coming from northern Europe.

 

 

"The Alto Lario is our lake, from Chiavenna is only 20 minutes by car or train. We know it well and for us it means evening walks, aperitifs, mountain bike excursions, water sports, canoeing, a nice pizza in front of the lake or an excellent risotto with perch, not to be missed.

 

In winter the area is quiet, but the slopes of Mount Sasso Canale, above Gera Lario, give us every year an exciting alpine ski tour overlooking the lake "

Campsites, newly equipped areas, sailing schools, rental facilities, allow an absolute fun and thanks to the new redevelopment of the beaches and cycle paths of Colico and Gera Lario, large public areas have been used for recreation and relaxation in the open air, facing the waters of Lake Como.

The Alto Lario is popular, but not like the Lake Garda area that suffers from crowdedness during the high season, so it can be the perfect destination for just a few hours of relaxation in the sun, until sunset, the best time for an aperitif.

The whole area of the upper Lake Como has a strong vocation for sports tourism, both at the lake and on the surrounding mountains.

 

MTB routes and long bike paths, trekking on the high streets, relaxation on the shores or tastings in restaurants and typical farmhouses and finally for a few weeks also winter scenic excursions on the snow with skis or snowshoes.
