The Elements of an Ecco Experience
We redefine travel as an experiential journey of immersion and reflection that takes you from seeing your environment to becoming an active part of it. Kayak Lake Como, cycle through the Italian countryside, hike to mountain summits, swim in alpine lakes, discover abandoned tunnels, one of a kind vineyards, traditional cheese making practices and more, all with expert guides.
Enjoy the convenience of all inclusive adventure. Every Ecco Adventure comes with private transportation, expert guides, tastings, and meals. On multiple day trips experience accommodations that are hand selected for their ambiance and location along with bedroom views of the valley and surrounding mountains.
