Full description

Spend a day riding with a very special four-legged friend: the horse! Mount your horse and immerse yourself in the nature of the Lurisia valley, in Roccaforte Mondovì, in the province of Cuneo.

Riding along mule tracks and forest paths you will reach Lake Pianfei where you can relax, lie down on the grass and have a nice picnic, perhaps spotting deer and roe deer.

Let yourself be lulled by the rhythmic pace of the horse and enjoy a day in the green, far from the daily routine. You will come out regenerated in body and spirit!

What we will do

The appointment is at the riding school in Lurisia Terme, a hamlet of Roccaforte Mondovì (CN) at 9:00 am. Here we will meet our equestrian guide, who will hold a briefing on riding techniques before setting off.

The first part of the excursion will be on an asphalt road and then continue on a dirt track to the locality of Candele. Here we will take a mule track that will lead us to the Morté pass, where we will cross a chestnut forest to reach, after a couple of hours, the pretty Pianfei Lake. Here we will be able to relax on the shores of the lake and have a picnic in the picnic area.

Once we have regained our energy, we set off again to enter the forest. Between ascents and descents, we will cross the quiet hamlets of Garavagna and Bonada, until we return to Lurisia at around 17:00.
