You’ve been asking…

What type of extreme sports can I do in Valsesia?

When you're in Valsesia, in addition to off-piste skiing, extreme sports enthusiasts can also enjoy hiking, kayaking and mountaineering. Since Valsesia consists of spectacular mountain peaks, guided climbing tours should not be missed whether there's snow on the ground or not.

Although groups do tend to gather in the summer to climb Punta Gnifetti to reach Margherita, the same routes can also be taken when the snow is light. In the winter, once you reach any one of the peaks throughout Valsesia, the fun really starts when you snowboard your way down. In the spring, admire the sights of lush greens and the changing colors in the fall from anyone of the trails you hike.
