Varese, land of events

From Sunday 8th January to Sunday 17th December 2023 | Varese


Dozens of excursions of all types and for all ages are planned until the end of the year in the Campo dei Fiori Regional Park area.

There will be three types of excursions:

  • Excursions with GEV
  •  MTB excursions
  • Four-legged friends into the woods

Excursions with GEV

Excursion on foot with return at lunchtime or with packed breakfast until mid-afternoon. Information on the meeting point and timetable can be found in the attached poster. The proposed itineraries do not present any particular difficulties; however, given the characteristics of the environment in which they take place, they should be tackled with the preparation required for a mid-mountain hiking activity. With the only exceptions explicitly indicated in the programme, participation in the excursions is free of charge and requires booking at the following e-mail address

Difficulty levels: 

* undemanding excursion with an altitude difference of less than 200m

** moderately demanding excursion with an altitude difference of less than 500m

*** difficult excursion

Participants are required to inform themselves about the level of commitment required for the course and assess their own abilities and physical condition.

MTB excursions

The hikes are for experienced hikers who love the environment. The proposed itineraries are of easy to medium difficulty, but suitable for trained agents as the routes will mainly be on dirt tracks. For all outings the meetings are:

  • Point 1 - piazza Libertà, Casbeno
  • Point 2 – via Canetta, St. Ambrogio

For info and reservations:

Four-legged friends into the woods

Walks with four-legged friends for all outings, the meeting time is 10:00 a.m., the meeting place is communicated to registered members only.

A few days before each outing, more details on the route will be given directly to those who have signed up via email. These outings, as well as allowing greater knowledge of the area, are also preparatory to a more conscious accompanying of dogs in nature. Insurance is compulsory.
