The Maira Valley in Piedmont is a true MTB paradise and rapidly developing in the world of mountain biking. The Maira Valley offers a large network from over 2000 km dirt roads, military roads, and trails through forests, Alpine pastures and along ridges at high altitude. La colletta is the highest pass in the Alps (2830 m) which you can cross by bike. Hardly any other region in Europe offers such a variety of trails in unspoiled nature, from trails in the Maira Valley upland to its alpine trails.
We will enjoy our Italy MTB enduro tour in Maira Valley in an authentic ambiance of the centuries-old hamlets of the area. As we stay in typical local accommodations we can get an insight into the unique historic architecture, feel in tune with the surrounding nature, and get lost in the magical atmosphere of the area.
The excellent cuisine in the Maira Valley reflects the close relationship with nature and mountain tradition. The menus are genuine, simple, and will bring you on a journey through the smells and flavors of the Maira territory, of course with Piedmontese wines and craft beers.
Although the area is only 100 km away from the city of Turin, the Maira Valley is a forgotten area of Piedmont. The Maira Valley is characterized by a vast migration. Thanks to increased tourism in the last few years, the migration is being counteracted. The Maira Valley is quiet and reserved by tradition, offering ideas for totally unspoiled tourism. Because of its vicinity to the Mediterranean Sea, this area has a mild climate, despite its alpine location.
