The resort is backed by huge mountains, and its well worth taking some time to explore the little villages that are perched on them. Good idea would be to get a picnic lunch from the Iperial supermarket and then take the little bus up the mountain from Dongo to Germasino. After exploring the village (250 inhabitants!) walk along the mountain road through Stazzona and on past the church to Brenzio. Take time to see inside the churches at Germasino, Stazzona and Brenzio. Stop along the way and have your picnic lunch as you gaze at the spectacular views of the lake from such a high position.
There is also a small restaurant in Brenzio. The walk down the mountain is lovely and brings you out at Consiglio di Ruma close to Gravedona and the Iperial supermarket.
If you are even more active, then visit Domaso, the next town up the lake as this is the water sports centre for the lake and you can get involved and hire equipment and boats etc. There are loads of restaurants there too and huge camping sites. Great for the younger ones and early teens.
