The Mountain of Bergamo! Discover with us the itinerary for the excursion to Canto Alto
Canto Alto is one of the first elevations encountered in the Bergamo Prealps. Due to its proximity to the city, it can easily be referred to as Bergamo’s mountain. From its summit cross, the panorama extends over the entire Lombard plain to the Emilian Apennines. There are numerous trails that lead to it, and in this article, we describe the one that starts from Sorisole.
We reach Sorisole by car and then the Pisgiù area, named after the homonymous restaurant, and park the car nearby. From here, we set out on the dirt road until we reach a junction, where we turn left and ascend along the CAI 220 trail marker.
Arriving at a clearing with a house, we continue, this time taking the right path. Following the trail, we first reach the area called “Monte” and then “Senna,” recognizable by the presence of some renovated houses.
Now we head towards the final stretch of the route. We continue until we reach a junction with a votive chapel, where we turn right. Shortly after, we traverse the grassy ridge of Colle Sant’Anna. From here, with one last short climb, we reach the summit cross to enjoy the magnificent panorama. Just below the cross, you’ll find the Alpini Canto Alto refuge, where you can refresh yourself.
The return takes place along the same itinerary as the ascent.
This excursion doesn’t entail any particular technical difficulties and only requires a minimal level of fitness.
