Monte Mottarone (1491m) from the northwestern end of Stresa will for sure impress you with the views over Lake Maggiore, including Isola Bella and Isola Superiore. From the summit on a clear day you can see Lake Orta, several other smaller lakes and Monte Rosa, the Alpine border with Switzerland and second highest mountain of the Alps.
For the more active, there are plenty of good mountain-biking and hiking trails on the mountain. There are plenty of bicycle renting options on the top. On the half way to the top you can try yourself in the adventure park with trails of different difficulty level.
Skiing Mottarone’s gentle slopes is limited to five green and two blue runs, making it good for beginners. Also possible from the summit is Alpyland a 1200m-long bobsled descent with adjustable speeds that makes it ideal for families.
Wouldn’t be fair if we won’t notice that there are different dining options from typical mountain restaurants to sophisticated cuisine of Villa Pizzini restaurant.
