MTB in Valle Maira
The Valley Maira in Piedmont is a true MTB paradise. The Valley offers a large network from over 2000 km dirt roads, military roads and single tracks through forests, Alpine pastures and long ridges at high altitude. Because of these old military roads you can reach many mountain peaks by bike. La colletta for example is the highest pass in the Alps (2830 m) which can be crossed by bike. Hardly any other region in Europe offers such a variety of trails in unspoilt nature. The Valle Maira is rapidly rapidly becoming a top MTB destination.
The excellent cuisine in the Valley Maira reflects the close relationship with nature and mountain tradition. The 4- 5 course menus are genuine and simple, and will bring you on a journey through the scents and flavours of the Maira territory, with Piedmontese wines or craft beers if you like.
Although the area is only 100 km away from the city of Turin, the Maira Valley is a forgotten area of Piedmont.
The valley is quiet and reserved by tradition, offering ideas for totally unspoilt tourism.
Because of its vicinity to the Mediterranean Sea, this area has a mild climate, despite its alpine location.
