The characteristic of this route, also known as the Valsesia route, is its accessibility. It can be traveled by selecting one section instead of the whole path. Each stretch has a signposted access along the Provincial Road of Alagna 299.

The distances of the individual sections measure about 5 km.

A map, which groups routes 1, as well as 2 and 3, is available at the Tourist Offices of Varallo, Scopello, Alagna, and also in the shops marked by the yellow sticker with the same symbol. The map, also exposed on the bulletin boards located along the routes, indicates access points, charging stations for electric bicycles, and the most demanding points to tackle.

Which bike to choose?

Definitely a Mountain Bike or an E-MTB, and if you need to rent it, you can also do it in Varallo, Scopa, Mollia and Alagna.

We always advise you to check the conditions of the route before leaving and to request information and a map from the nearest Tourist Office.
