Stunning excursion in one of the most enchanting and secluded places of this magic area among Mera river and Lake Novate.

We will first follows a section of the ancient path that use to connect Como and the Norther part of Lake Como and Valchiavenna. Than we will navigate a trail that crosses cestnut forests, old bridges, narrow valley up and down all way long and finally we will get to a shady flat path just on the side of the river that will take us straight to San Fedelino, a little pictoresque romanic church located in a little clearing on Mera river bank.

 

Return to Dascio by boat. We will get very close to the impressive rocky side and wild coasts of Lake Novate.
