Full description

Enjoy a horseback ride along theIssiglio bridle path, an 18 km route immersed in the beautiful nature of the Valchiusella valley.

You will ride along the Canavese's second certified bridle path in the company of an expert equestrian guide, who will show you places of great scenic charm.

You will admire Palasot, a characteristic mountain location that gives the impression of resting on a cloud, and evocative broadleaf and birch woods in the saddle of the best travelling companion, the horse.

What we will do

The appointment is at 10 a.m. at the pre-arranged meeting point near Issiglio in Valchiusella. Here we will meet our guide and the splendid trained horses that will accompany us on our tour.

We will ride together along theIssiglio bridle path, the second certified bridle path in the Canavese (after theCima Bossola bridle path). It is a track of about 18 km, safe and suitable for everyone, in the shade of birches, elms and oaks. It will be a route of great emotional impact due to the beauty of the places, which will make us forget the stress of everyday life for a moment.

We will then reach, with an altitude difference of 600 metres, Palasot, a pleasant mountain locality located above the village of Castelnuovo Nigra.

We will also make a stop at the Locanda del Palasot, a characteristic restaurant immersed in the greenery of the valley. Here we can relax while enjoying traditional Piedmontese dishes, before returning on horseback in the direction of Issiglio.

The activity lasts approximately 5 hours (including lunch break).
