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 trails through forests, Alpine pastures and long ridges at high altitude. Due to the old military roads you can reach many mountain peaks by bike. La colletta in Valle Maira 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. Valle Maira is rapidly developing in the world of MTB.
We will enjoy our holiday in an authentic ambience of the centuries-old hamlets of the Valley Maira. As we stay in typical local accommodations we can get an insight of the unique historic architecture, feel in tune with the surrounding nature and get lost in the magical atmosphere of the area.
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 smells and flavours of the Maira territory, if you wish with Piedmontese wines or craft beers.
About Valle Maira
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.
