Monviso-267x180If you like mountain landscapes, you shouldn’t miss the valleys around Mount Viso. On the steep slopes of this “Stone King” and on nearby mountains you can practise a wide range of sports surrounded by one of the most picturesque scenaries in the world.

The Po and the Varaita valley offer all kinds of environment-friendly activities. In summer you can go hiking or climbing as well as ride your bike along asphalted roads or secluded mule tracks.
