Stresa is not all rest and relaxation, it is also a starting point for some extreme outdoor sports: sailing, canoeing, kayaking, skiing, swimming and wake boarding, for those who love water and wind. Mountain biking and trekking for those who love demanding terrain, climbing and slopes and who are not afraid to work up a sweat!
The best and most appealing way to start is to take the cable car and then take on a downhill trail. Or you can opt for a scenic trip up to the top of Mottarone.
Here you can choose between many scenic routes with varying levels of difficulty that will lead you back to the banks of the lake... And the tireless among you can go back and do it all over again!
Start in the mountains and go right down to the lake: this is the best way to dive into nature... by foot or on two wheels.
