Cannobio: Cannero Riviera Hiking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 9 hours
What could be better than a relaxing lake cruise at the end of a hard day? This is your opportunity to go from Cannobio by private boat to admire the famous "Castelli di Cannero Riviera", which has been a pirates' hideout in the past. You can enjoy a delicious aperitif in good company, as you socialize onboard your comfortable boat. During the cruise, you will have plenty of time to take photos, and learn more about this wonderful side of Lake Maggiore. Your cruise will take approximately 1.5 hours, and will end once back in Cannobio. Once back at the port, you will discover many restaurants and cafès which will be available for you to choose from.
Leaving Cannobio, you will head towards a path which leads to the castle-like village of Carmine Superiore. The village is unique, being cut out of the rocks and containing a Romanesque church and frescoes. A walk half way up the hill offers breathtaking views over the lake, which is surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation. Whilst at the village, visit the cozy church to discover its frescoes. You will then stop for a nice packed lunch before heading further on towards the Cannero Riviera, with glances of the legendary castles which emerge from the lake. You will finally walk along the center of Cannero, where you will meet your boat to return to Cannobio.

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and the drive. It would be very pleasant if he explained something about the surroundings, for example something about the ruins of the Pirate Castle and its renovation. There is definitely something to tell about the history of Lake Magiore. With best regards Dagmar and Erst-Jürgen
Very nice romantic positive experience since my wife was with me, too bad it lasts only an hour and a half, but I highly recommend it. Thanks
