Piedmont is a real mine of ideas for outdoor activities and enjoying nature, good food and the region’s cultural heritage and traditions. From Mount Rosa to the Ossola and Biellese peaks, from Turin’s Alps to those of Cuneo with Mount Monviso and up to the hills of the Alta Langa and the Apennines (where you can already get the scent of the sea) there is no shortage of easy and more demanding bicycle trails.

Challenging trekking and cycle paths

On the Via Francigena in the Susa Valley, on foot or on two wheels, you can identify with the pilgrims who in Medieval days travelled along this route to Rome or Santiago de Compostela. A more challenging but equally fascinating trail is that which takes in the five refuges in the Orsiera-Rocciavrè Park, touching on three valleys on the outskirts of Turin. Between the provinces of Turin and Vercelli, the Trail of the White Stones consists of interconnecting ring circuits through eleven towns. 

In the footsteps of the ancient anchovy traders

The Giro di Viso trekking trail with the ascent to the Buco di Viso tunnel is very challenging and therefore for expert hikers and has various shelters around the highest peak in the Cottian Alps. The Via del Sale trail, also in the Cuneo area, is a classic for expert bikers and has spectacular views, and from Limone to Ventimiglia you walk in the footsteps of the anchovy traders who once plied their trade between Liguria and Piedmont.

Discovering local specialties

The Tour del Gusto in the Alta Langa is a beautiful enogastronomic route suitable for everyone, especially on an e-bike, although it can also be enjoyed as a trekking trail. A few kilometers from Alba, through the Langhe district, you come to places famous for cheeses, hazelnuts, castles and old villages that seem suspended in time.
