Garni Le Grigne


Valsassina, an open-air gym

The Valsassina and the Orobica Dorsal Lecchese are a paradise for mountain lovers and offer the possibility of climbing for the more experienced and also for those who want to start practicing this sport. The walks and paths, from the easiest to the most challenging, are countless: you can choose whether to follow those that tell the history of the territory, those who speak to us of the ancient tradition of iron workers and mines or those who will take you to the mountain pastures to know and appreciate the work of farmers and cheesemakers. Just a few examples: high/ low crossing of the Grigne, Pizzo dei Tre Signori, Alpe di Biandino, mountains pastures, the mountains of Premana.

On the banks of the Lario you can also try the well-known Sentiero del Viandante, an itinerary that runs along the entire Lecco shore of the lake, which with its 45 km of length can be covered in stages.

Even hikers who love MTB and E-MTB find in Valsassina panoramic and magnificent paths suitable for all abilities, from the bike path that runs throughout the valley floor connected with the plateau of Barzio, Cremeno, Cassina, Moggio and Maggio, the Bassa delle Grigne crossing, the Piani di Bobbio, Artavaggio, the Culmine S. Pietro and the Alta Valsassina routes.
