The Greenway of the Oglio River

Castles and fabulous petroglyphs. Passes made famous by the Giro d’Italia and Liberty spas. And Lake delicacies to be sampled

Leaving from the Passo del Tonale in the Parco dell’Adamello, the gradients increase but nearly all are descents until Darfo Boario Terme and Lake Iseo.

Here, it is advisable to stop and undertake, on the following day, a fine tour along the shores of the lake. An attractive alternative is to take the ferry from Sulzano or Sale Marasino goes to Monte Isola.

The next stage leaves the lake behind to follow the banks of the river Oglio as it crosses the plain to the Po.
