Even if the discipline now has various names; hiking, backpacking, hillwalking and trekking, in ancient times the inhabitants of the Alps used this technique… not for recreational purposes, but as a means of travelling on foot to reach their destination.
This activity brings you into close contact with nature in a setting, that of the Sesia Valley, which is unique in Italy and in Europe. We will pass through historic hamlets, some of which abandoned, view Alpine torrents, woods and lakes, observing along the way the typical fauna and flora of these mountains.
The trails, which all start in Campertogno, are not particularly difficult and do not involve any mountaineering techniques. Thus, they are suitable for everyone, the only prerequisite being the desire to experience this Alpine adventure immersed in nature.
