Travel tips prior to your journey

Car, plane, train, and ferry

Car

Whether you arrive by ferry to IJmuiden, Hook of Holland, or the Tunnel to Calais, the distance to the Park is about 1070 km. This is doable in one day provided you take enough rest. Most drivers choose the route through Basel and across the Gotthard.

Alternatively, you can choose the San Bernardino pass. More adventurous routes to reach Gera Lario include the Splügen pass or the Jullier/Maloja passes.

On-line route planners (such as Google maps) can assist your journey preparations, flag any spots with traffic congestion, and provide alternative options.

Ferry

From Malpensa Airport it is possible to reach Como, changing trains in Saronno. From Como one can take the fast hydrofoil ferry up along the full length of the Lake, a beautiful start of the holiday. At the time of writing, a port call in Gera Lario was not included in the service any longer, so one would have to disembark in either Domaso or Colico.

Plane and train/coach

Low-cost air travel is possible by flying to Bergamo (airport Orio al Serio) which is located 85 km away from the Park. Airlines include for example Ryanair, Transavia and Berlinair.

Other airports include:

  • Milano Linate (105 km from Gera Lario), destination for KLM / Alitalia and related airlines.
  • Milano Malpensa (125 km from Gera Lario),  destination for KLM / Alitalia and other airlines such as EasyJet.

Malpensa airport has an excellent train connection to Milan Central Station (“Malpensa Express”). Frequent bus services bridge the short distance between Milan Linate Airport and Milan Central Station. From here you can connect with trains going North, passing through Colico, the closest train station to the Park. Here you can take local bus service C-10 to Menaggio/Como, stepping off at Gera Lario.

From Bergamo you can take a train to Lecco and then connect to Colico.

The Italian public train system is excellent and not expensive.
