Tour description

«Walkingtested» trail, that’s been especially selected for walking and nordic walking (for evaluations and opinions see «see also»).

This lovely itinerary, which unwinds in the hills, alternates between a more difficult path at first and an easier one on asphalt later on. The point of departure is located near the playground at the town entrance, where there’s a fountain and a handy parking lot, modern wall paintings may be observed on the facades of the houses, created thanks to a recent initiative of the Municipality. Once you’ve gone beyond the town, you’ll find yourself in a lovely chestnut tree forest (take off rubber tips). At a widening in the road, an easy dirt road begins; be careful of the rather steep downhill stretch, at the bottom of which you can admire some deer behind the fence on the edge of the forest. Once on the asphalt road put on the rubber tip again. Once you’ve past Alpe Paz, which is on your right, along the road you can observe a «nevéra», where farming and breeding products used to be kept cool. In clear weather, once out of the forest, you can admire the Mount Rosa mountain chain and the hilly landscape gently degrading towards Italy. Once back in the village, take note of the typical architecture of the lovely houses with their porticoes and archways.
