The Orobian Alps and Alpine foothills are a branch of the Central Alps stretching around 70 km from Lake Como to Passo dell'Aprica. The Bergamo side to the south descends gradually and gently to the hills on which Bergamo town stands and then to the plains. The peaks are higher than 3000 metres above sea level and a complex network of streams and tributaries feeds the two main rivers, the Brembo and Serio Rivers, after which the main two valleys are named. It is precisely on the strength of this geographic conformation that human and natural settlements have melded over the centuries and local culture and the environment have shaped each other. If you need transport to the meeting point our shuttle is available. The Orobian Alps offer a wide range of varied itineraries suitable for families and walkers of all ages and a chance to soak up a splendid natural setting and rediscover mountain culture. Come with us!
We will offer trips exploring the Orobie mountains, in contact with a pristine natural world and local and regional culture on the basis of weather conditions and the seasons.

In addition to looking out for your safety, he will share his in-depth knowledge of the area with you, both history and nature.
