Full description

Unplug and enjoy the natural beauty of the Valchiusella with afull-day horseback riding excursion.

Fairytale passages and enchanting natural scenery will be the backdrop to one of the coolest experiences of the moment. You'll fall in love with these wild, romantic places (location of some scenes from The Black Arrow), where the Chiusella river has its source and creates natural pools and marvellous waterfalls.

What we will do

The appointment is at 10 a.m. near Traversella, in the province of Turin. Here we will meet the equestrian guide and the beautiful trained horses that will accompany us on our tour. Once we have familiarised ourselves with the animals and briefly gone over riding techniques, we can finally set off on our ride.

The route goes from Fondo, a characteristic hamlet of Traversella and one of the last hamlets of the Valchiusella, to the small village of Tallorno. We ascend along the agro-forestry track that runs alongside the Chiusella stream and arrive nearAlpe Pasquere. Some scenes of the TV miniseries La Freccia Nera, starring Riccardo Scamarcio, were filmed here.

We will ride along paths immersed in nature, among pastures, marvellous waterfalls and natural pools and, after about 1.5 hours of riding, we will stop for lunch (not included in the participation fee), which can be packed or in one of the valley's typical restaurants.

The activity lasts about 5 hours, including lunch break.
