Activities at Mandarin Oriental, Lago di Como

Tucked into the Rhaetian Alps, surrounded by towering wooded hills and pretty villages, Lake Como is a beguiling natural haven. With its winding shoreline and deep blue waters, it's not surprising it has been attracting travellers since Roman times and can now count celebrities, notably George Clooney, among its residents.

Visit the grand villas dotted around the lake, such as the 19th-century Villa Elba, which features in the film Ocean's Twelve. If you have a taste for adventure, enjoy a scenic cycle ride or head out on the water for some sailing or water-skiing. Climb to the top of the Volta lighthouse to enjoy more panoramic views over the lake and beyond.
