Hiking in a landscape of magic forest and lakes

A magic forest with fantastic scenery

Yesterday I was hiking in a magic forest. I know it sounds a bit goofy byt I do think nature is magic and I love to spend time in the forest. So for me it’s all magic.

We passed to small lakes on the way. One of the lakes had a surface covered by water lilies.

The other lake was situated above this one. We found out they where connected by a old floodgate. No water was flowing between the lakes this day.

During our hike we passed green trees but also dead trees…

We ended up at a third lake. We sat down there for a while, and enjoyed the stillness:

And finally I captured the sun behind a cloud on the surface of the lake:

Hiking with a view: Lake Como

Wonderful Lake Como

This summer we went to Lake Como for hiking and enjoying the lake:)

We stayed in a small village: Varenna from where it is possible to do several hiking trips. All trails is a bit demanding, its partly very steep but the views are, of course amazing.

On the first day we went on a boat trip cross the lake to Lenno. We took a small walk around the park surrounding Villa Balbianello. Here you can see the view from one point during the walk.

Later on during our week in Varenna we was hiking some harder trails. For example we walked above Varenna, passing the Castello di Vizio, ending up in a village called Bellano. Below you can see some views from that trip.
