Sky High Sports
For those looking to take a slightly different approach to Lake Como, you may be interested to hear that it can be a sporty hub as well as a refined retreat. Sky High Sports offers sporting tours to Italy, with Lake Como as the flagship destination. The tours, which are usually rugby based, are based around the lakeside city of Lecco which sits snugly between the south-eastern leg of Lake Como and the Italian Alps. The chances are that it will be more aesthetically impressive than your local training ground! Lecco was originally a copper mining town and, perhaps more interestingly, Leonardo da Vinci is said to have spent much time plotting his imaginative ideas in the town’s mountains during his time spent living in Milan.
Sky High Sports is a well-respected organisation which runs such tours and prides itself on having forged strong relationships with local clubs, hotels and transport companies, ensuring that your stay runs smoothly and delves you deeply into Como culture at its most effervescent. Effective organisation is reflected in the meticulous itineraries of Sky High Sports, yet they make a point of ensuring that every trip gives its team a degree of fluidity and flexibility to see the sights they wish to see.
In terms of the sporting nitty gritty, various different rugby tours are available to Lake Como, including Rugby Union, Women’s Rugby and Youth Rugby. All of these tours are cleverly tailored and specialised, ensuring you play fantastic teams, train in stunning grounds and generally get plenty of time on the pitch! Cricket and football tours, although less common, are also sometimes available.
Lake Como is where it all began for Sky High Sports. Now, this is our version of an exclusive destination and forms the key part of our Italian Tours that are becoming stuff of legend. Rarely matched, never beaten.
