Borromean Islands Navigation

About Us

For over 20 years, our Borromean Islands Navigation Company has been a reference point for passenger transport on Lake Maggiore and to the Borromean Islands: Isola MadreIsola Pescatori and Isola Bella.
We work with passion to make our customers discover the most beautiful destinations on Lake Maggiore, offering them the possibility to know the culture on our territory, so that they can spend a holiday oriented to reality: local "beauties and flavours" and to experience them in order to become very satisfied customers.
In order to make boarding, staying on board during the excursion, cruise, aperitif on board or the required navigation service easier the company has decided to invest by restructuring and renewing its fleet. This will be enriched with additional boats thus having the ability to accommodate up to 66 passengers.
They all have comfortable spaces in order to admire the landscape, leather seats, large sliding sundecks, teak floor, Bose stereo system, air conditioning, radio, microphone and toilet.  
The motorboats of the Borromean Islands Navigation are ideal for those people, who want to move quickly and with ease. The main landing stage is in Stresa in Piazza Cadorna “Imbarcadero”, or from other coastal locations upon your requests. 

Change plays a decisive role for us: we want to offer experience, quality and professionalism.

Lake Maggiore Excursions – Stresa Excursions

Visite guidate per gruppi e scuole.

Sono percorsi di visita tematici in cui, accompagnati dalle nostre guide potrete conoscere le Isole BorromeeIsola Bella con il Palazzo Borromeo, la sala del Trono, la sala degli Arazzi e il Giardino terrazzato all’Italiana; l’Isola dei Pescatori, conosciuta come Isola Superiore, situata leggermente più a nord e raggiungibile dall’Isola Bella in meno di cinque minuti. Rappresenta la storia del Lago Maggiore e dei suoi pescatori che la abitano e infine, L’Isola Madre, come dice il conte Vitaliano Borromeo, proprietario delle isole “è un prezioso gioiello incastonato nelle acque del Lago Maggiore”.
Il Giardino Botanico di Villa Taranto si trova a Verbania sulla sponda Piemontese del Lago Maggiore. Giardino di 16 ettari con 20.000 piante di particolare valenza botanica ed oltre 80.000 le bulbose in fiore, mentre 15.000 sono le piante di bordura che tappezzano le numerose aiuole.
L’Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso Ballaro è situato sulla sponda Lombarda, senza dubbio uno degli scenari più suggestivi del Lago.
La Rocca di Angera sperone di roccia sulla sponda meridionale, fu acquistata dalla famiglia Borromeo, cui ancora oggi appartiene. Al suo interno troverete Sale Storiche impreziosite dal recente allestimento della Sala delle Maioliche e dal Museo delle Bambole.

Questo è solo l’accenno di cosa potrete visitare.
