Full description

Escape the stress of everyday life and spend two wonderful days in the company of an extraordinary animal to discover the magnificent landscapes of the Pesio Valley in the province of Cuneo.

You will set off on anamazing adventure in close contact with nature. You will ride through the woods, getting in symbiosis with the horse and being enchanted by the mountain panorama with the peaks of the Maritime Alps as a backdrop.

Towards evening, you will stop at a pretty farmhouse to enjoy a typical dinner and rest in view of the new day ahead!

What we will do

The appointment is at 8.30 a.m. at the stable in Lurisia, a hamlet in the municipality of Roccaforte Mondovì (CN). First we will hold an introductory briefing on the activities of the two days, then we will prepare the horses, a small review on riding techniques and the rules of behaviour to be followed, and around 10:00 we will be ready to leave.

We will enter the forest in a continuous up and down of paths and lanes, passing Lake Pianfei and Mombrisone Castle, symbols of the Pesio Valley. We will cross valleys and mountain ridges, immersing ourselves in the silence and peace of nature, always surrounded by the peaks of the Maritime Alps.

Around 5.30 p.m. and after about 20 km, we will reach thefarmhouse that will welcome us for the night, where we will be able to relax and enjoy a dinner of typical products all together in joy.

The following morning, after a nutritious breakfast of cured meats, cheeses, butter, homemade bread and homemade jams, we will set off on our horses and ride along the Via delle Borgate, passing two valleys and encountering small abandoned villages along the way until we reach Monte Olocco.

Here we will enjoy thewide panorama of the Pesio Valley and finally descend along the via delle sorgenti, which will take us back to our starting point in Lurisia at around 5.30 p.m., after riding about 16 km.

The route is made up of 90% dirt road and 10% asphalt. An off-road vehicle of the organisation will follow us, transporting luggage, equipment and providing the necessary support when required.
