TREKKING IN THE VALLEYS
Trekking in Val Grande and the natural parks of Lake Maggiore
The entire territory of Lake Maggiore, from the shore to its inland valleys up to its hills, is the perfect place to completely enjoy the nature and to spend time with a healthy and regenerative sport activity: trekking. For those who choose a hotel over Lake Maggiore such as the Hotel Moderno in Premeno can calmly decide to dedicate part of their vacation to sport with organized trekking groups which, with different levels of difficulty based on experience, can help them live in a completely new way, a holiday at the lake.
Sleeping on Lake Maggiore, moreover, is a unique opportunity to take a break and to allow oneself to enjoy the well deserved relax after months and months of work in chaotic and messy cities. Here, surrounded by nature, you can visit the most famous Italian natural parks such as the Val Grande National Park, Macugnaga faunal oasis, at the foot of Mount Rosa and the Alps Veglia and Devero Regional Park. Also from Verbania or Arona it is possible to set out trekking paths useful for children, like the path that goes all along the Natural Reserve of Fondotoce or the one crossing the Natural Park of Lagoni di Mercurago and Dormelletto.
Here, in addition to rare plants and a typical fauna, it is possible to stop at the mountain huts to taste the artisan products made by the local farmers.
For those who are around Sesto Calende, it can be interesting a trekking path inside the Ticino Park. Finally, from Stresa it is possible to start the discovery of the Alpinia Botanic Garden, with a trekking path so suggestive and typical thanks to the view that can be observed, with the Lake Maggiore framing it.
