Full description

Sometimes you feel the strong call of nature and the need to disconnect from everyday life and treat yourself to a special day. Anexcursion on horseback in the woods is perfect for such occasions.

In the company of environmental equestrian guides you will experience a day of relaxation, sport, nature and traditions, riding along the woodland paths in the Ellero Valley, in the province of Cuneo.

You will visit an area little travelled by tourism, yet of uncontaminated beauty, where it is still possible to breathe in the intense odours of nature and move undisturbed among flowering meadows, streams and karst peaks.

What we will do

We will meet at 9 a.m. in Lurisia Terme, a hamlet of Roccaforte Mondovì, in the province of Cuneo. We will meet the equestrian guides and after a briefing we will mount our horses to set off along the woodland paths. The first part of the route involves an ascent of about an hour, and then a descent along stretches of medium difficulty that will take us into the heart of the Ellero Valley.

The Ellero Valley belongs to the territory of the Maritime Alps, and is a little-visited place of great natural beauty. It is the junction of several routes that connect Piedmont with Liguria, as far as the sea, and is surrounded by mountain peaks of karstic origin.

After visiting the valley far and wide, we will stop at a typical restaurant for lunch based on local specialities (included in the participation fee). We will satisfy the palate with traditional Piedmontese hors d'oeuvres, forest mushrooms, local cheeses and the typical agnolotti del 'plin', stuffed with meat.

We will have lunch at our leisure and then take the road back, stopping at Prea, a delightful Occitan village, and the Pian del Lupo viewpoint. The return to Lurisia Terme is scheduled for 5 p.m., after a distance of about 20 km.
