Relaxing in a typical Alpine chalet, you will be surprised by the beauty of Valsesia . Far from the most famous resorts of Cervinia and Zermath, this enchanting area at the feet of Mount Rosa still preserves a genuine and authentic atmosphere. A snowshoes excursion with our expert guide, a great dinner in a shelter and a Spa treatment will be the perfect mix for a memorable weekend.
Day 1: Typical dinner & Overnight in Walser house
Individual arrival in Riva Valdobbia (nearest airport Turin and Milan), a small village of the Vogna valley, one of the most beautiful Valsesia valleys, both from the naturalistic and historical-ethnographic point of view. Here you can find significant evidence of the Walser civilization. The first Walser people coming in Valsesia were devoted to animals, livestock and to the exploitation of derived products. With the passing of time the Walser, as shepherds , turned into farmers and later became woodsmen. Time at your disposal to visit the village and for the accommodation in a typical Alpine chalet made of wood and stone (Walser house), cozy and refined, where it will be a pleasure to enjoy a dinner tasting products of this valley. Overnight stay.

Or you can dedicate yourselves to the discovery of craftsmanship and of typical products of this valley with its ancient charm which is home to several museums of the/its ethnographic history.
In the afternoon you get ready to wear the “ ciaspole “ (snowshoes) and admire the suggestive landscape of the mountains in the evening, up to the refuge Alpe Campo. The suggested routes vary according to the weekend. A typical dinner accompanied by wines and local liqueurs is guaranteed. You will surely return to Walser house tired but satisfied for the overnight stay.
