Orobie has peaks over 2,000 metres on the back of Bergamo, ranging from Valtellina to the lake there are incredible landscapes and shelters suitable for both families and experts. There are over 1,000 km of paths along summits, pastures and Alpine crystal-clear lakes.

Another stop we suggest is the river Serio waterfalls. Five waterfalls to enjoy the power of nature in a triple jump of 315 metres, one of the highest in Italy.
