Mountain bike and bicycle excursions
For those passionate about cycling and mountain biking, the territory offers many opportunities! A fun and alternative way of getting to know the natural treasures of this area. Here below you can find three interesting trails:
The route along the rivers – The circular route of ca. 18 km starts at the train station in Domodossola and proceeds clockwise, passing Domodossola, Crevoladossola, Montecrestese, Masera and Trontano. The route owes its name to the fact that it runs along five rivers: Toce, Bogna, Diveria, Isorno and Melezzo. We suggest doing the route clockwise. The route between the hamlets – The route starts in Domodossola; civil, religious and cultural “capital” of the Ossola valleys, and reaches Vogogna. The principal route runs to the right along the Toce River until you reach the bridge in Pieve Vergonte, riding along well-maintained bicycle paths, especially between Domodossola and Villadossola.
The area of Mount Mottarone, with its boulders and climbing walls, offers various opportunities to approach this sport at all levels and for all ages. The nearby Mount Orfano and the Ossola Valley also offer vast rock faces where you can take your first steps, accompanied and helped by an expert Alpine guide, or for experts who like to challenge themselves on different levels.
The area of Lake Maggiore is known as the “Green with a view” thanks to the numerous golf courses from where it is possible to admire the splendid panorama, surrounded by the Alps. Don’t miss the opportunity to play your favorite sport in an unforgettable environment!
If you love nature and outdoor activities, this is the excursion for you!
Spending a day horseback riding on Lake Maggiore isn’t something that happens every day, between magical woods on the slopes of Mount Mottarone.
