Summer 2018

For the 2018 summer season, Alagna Valsesia has in store many interesting activities dedicated to both families and sports lovers.

Let’s discover the history of the Alps, in depth!
The didactic path is a circular track that starts from Passo Salati, reaches the Scientific Institute Angelo Mosso, the Rifugio Vigevano, the Col d'Olen, climbs to the Corno del Camoscio and leads again to Passo Salati. It aims to promote the knowledge of the geological history of the Alps and the characteristics of high altitude grounds.

Reachable by a short and scenic path, the Istituto Angelo Mosso, opened in 1907, is located near the Col d'Olen, almost between Valsesia and Valle di Gressoney, at 2,901 meters. Research, laboratories and training are still at the core of the institute's activity; the institute is open to the public for a visit that includes the outputs of many years of research and ancient instruments!

This easy track, about 2.3 km long and with a ascension of 53 meters, allows you to reach the peack of Corno del Camoscio (3,026 m) which offers a magnificent view on the Monte Rosa massif, Punta Giordani and the eastern Lyskamm. The path then leads to Col d'Olen and the Angelo Mosso Research Institute. Along the botanical path from the end of June to the end of August it is possible to admire the flowering of numerous species and to observe the alpine flora.

A circular cycle and pedestrian itinerary through the green expanses of Pianalunga and Alpe Seiwji: this pleasant ride can be followed in stages, between a slideon the Tubing, a panoramic stop-over, a look to the animals and a typical dish in the Rifugio!
