Wild Northern Piedmont Hike

This off the beaten track hike is located in northern Piedmont, part of Monte Rosa area but also not far
DISPLAY FULL DESCRIPTION
from Lake Maggiore. Northern Piedmont Hike is located in the Sermenza Valley a wild side valley of the Sesia Valley, which ends in the beautiful Alagna, just below the Monte Rosa massif. Val Sermenza is off the beaten track. Its beautiful tiny village host from 6(!) to 50 inhabitants and the peace you'll find here is hard to find anywhere else. Nonetheless, the mountain landscape of this Wild Northern Piedmont Hike is gorgeous. The mountains in Northern Piedmont are pretty tough and if you are a beginner the slopes will be quite hard to handle. Though if you have a good spirit and will of explore the Nature into the Wild this is the right hike for you.

Northern Piedmont offers culture and Nature at its best!

The hike here described is a 3 days loop discovering the beautiful villages of Rima and Carcoforo and is part of the Alta Valsesia Natural Park. The Monte Rosa is towering from the highest passes and the villages are very influenced by the Walser culture, the nomads who settled in this corner of the Alps after centuries living a nomad life in the most extreme possible location for a human being. Up at 2200 meters in the Alps, the Walser were living in very extreme conditions. To imagine life in winter at 2200 meters right now is incredible! Val Sermenza is a very off the beaten track hiking location that will leave you incredible memory!

The Wild Northern Piedmont Hike has a very interesting location to visit in the Sacro Monte di Varallo a beautiful sanctuary in the Sesia Valley and also not far from Lake Maggiore if you want to stay in the area for the continuation of your holidays in Italy.
