The Oglio is formed from the confluence of two mountain streams, the Narcanello from the Presena Glacier, and the Frigidolfo, from Lake Ercavallo, in the Stelvio National Park. These two streams are born at the points of the Corno dei Tre Signori, at an elevation of about 2,600 metres (8,500 ft). The streams merge near Pezzo di Ponte di Legno.
It flows in a southwest direction, through Valcamonica and then Lake Iseo. It joins the Po after traveling a zone of moraine deposits, at Torredoglio, not far from Cesole and Scorzarolo, in the province of Mantua. Its drainage basin, which corresponds to the region of Valle Camonica, covers 6,649 square kilometres (2,567 sq mi). It is part of the larger Po-Adige basin.
