About
Dive into nature just outside Como city by entering Lake Como natural park "Spina Verde" and cross the border with Switzerland by bike.

The tour begins in Como city, you will immediately be away from traffic and you will start climbing to reach an amazing panoramic balcony in Spina Verde park overlooking the lake and the city of Como. From there you will reach trench lines from World War 1 and stop for a walk in this historical site. After riding more unique trails in chestnut woods you will cross the border with Switzerland reaching a second panoramic point.

Great place to rent bikes in Como. We rented regulat MTB and they were top quality bikes. Max, our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating. We would definitely go back, rent and do a tour with them if back in the area.

Excellent trip with Max discovering new places around Lake Como - around the Swiss and Italian border - 5 stars, loved it! The panorama was beautiful with visits to a few historical sights along the route made the trip so rich in terms of sightseeing activies.The electric bike (MTB) rented was of super quality, such a pleasure to use! Max also gives you great tips to fully enjoy your MTB experience. I highly recommend Max guided tours and I definitely cannot wait for another trip! Thank you so much for the experience!!

Very good trip with Max.. he’s such a nice and informative guide. It’s such a great way to explore the area and get some great views of the lake Como area. Further more cool historical sights and border-crossing by bike.
Would definitely go again and recommend!

Perfectly English speaking Italian tour guide Max showed us the beautiful surroundings and the 'Parco Regionale Spina Verde' at the Como Lake.

We used great bikes (MTB with Full Suspension) and explored beautiful challenging routes. We can't wait to explore more routes around the Como Lake with Max.

Thank you very much.

I had a really good tour with Max. After my request we did some enduro riding which was really cool. Then we did some XC in and out of Switzerland and Italy. Went through wine yards and saw historical sights. It had it all. Absolutely perfect. Looking forward to go back.

This ride was absolutely one of the highlights of our trip! Max was such a gracious guide - he took us through single track chestnut forests and vineyards and stopped many times to share the history of the places we visited. The ride was challenging and fun and Max was cautious of our safety and mindful of enjoyment. I (unfortunately) lost my phone along our route and Max went out of his way to help me try and find it. Max it’s without a doubt, a good person and the best guide in Lake Como. If you’re trying to decide between this adventure and another, choose this one! Max will not disappoint! Thank you so much for everything!

Found Max online, super easy to deal with and prompt reply’s to questions. Ask forthe bike to set up a certain way - not a problem. Great ride between border of Switzerland and italy. I ride mostly enduro and so Max was able to mix the route up some epics decent. With amazing views. 100% recommended 🤘
