Discovering the Valle Maira
Gardetta, Elva and the Strada dei Cannoni
2 DAYS / 1 NIGHT
Guided tour by MTB or e-bike to discover the wonders of the Maira Valley. We will cross the Gardetta plateau on the ancient military routes, a unique place where endless pastures are interrupted only by jagged mountains that look like Dolomites.
Proceeding along the Occitan Trails, we will visit the numerous villages of the Elva basin. Here the panorama amazes visitors, but so does the location's art, with frescoes from the Romanesque period and its history, visible in the Museo dei Capelli (Hair Museum). Following the Strada Dei Cannoni we will admire the work of the military genius that runs through the whole valley along the watershed between Maira and Varaita.
We leave from Marmora for the Gardetta ring tour. In the afternoon we will continue the tour and visit some sites of historical, geological and naturalistic interest on the plateau before starting the descent and returning to the hotel.
We will start the day with a short transfer by van to the Colle San Giovanni. Once on our bikes, we will start the tour along the Occitan trails. A visit to the village of Elva will provide an opportunity for a stop. Having reached the Colle Sampeyre, we will continue along the Strada dei Cannoni to reach San Damiano Macra.
