Full description

A unique holiday along the Via del Sale (Antica via Marenga), the white road connecting the mountains to the sea.

In the past, the Via del Sale was used by shepherds, pilgrims and salt traders, while today it has taken on an important role for outdoor tourism, allowing you to explore unspoilt territories rich in floral and faunal diversity.

You will spend three days of adventure travelling this route by e-bike accompanied by professional instructors. The total distance is approx. 120 km. We will be travelling at anaverage altitude of 2,000 m, but apart from a small section of high difficulty at the Col del Duca, all the rest is up and down at altitude of medium difficulty and also suitable for those without e-bike experience.

We'll take care of everything: transfers, meals, accommodation are all included in the price. All you have to do is bring a desire to have fun. We guarantee you won't be disappointed!

What we will do

The meeting is set for 8 a.m. at the Bike Village Pianbosco. Coffee, presentation, small technical briefing, bike set-up and off we go!

Day 1

The first day will cover about 50km and will allow us to become familiar with the ebikes, learning how to ride them and manage them on the different types of tracks.

We will set off from the village in Chiusa di Pesio (Cuneo ) and head to Pian delle Gorre, we will ride along the "paths of the ancient hamlets" of the Pesio Valley Park, which are of medium level but absolutely accessible. We will head to the slopes of the Duca pass , passing along beautiful paths with a lunch stop at a mountain hut. We will reach the Pian delle Gorre refuge (1032m) around 18:00 where we will have dinner and spend the night.

Day 2

In the morning we set off at 8.30 a.m. towards the Passo del Duca (1980m), undoubtedly the most challenging part of the route. We will cover 1,000 metres of altitude difference until we descend towards France. Once you reach the town of Tenda, the ascent along the Via del Sale begins again, with a break for a packed lunch, before finally reaching the Don Barbera refuge (2079m) around 18:00, the place for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3

The following morning at 8:30, after a hearty breakfast, we set off towards the Allavena refuge (1545mt) where we will have a break for lunch and then tackle the last stretch towards the sea. From this point, the height difference is minimal. We will arrive in Ventimiglia where we will take the train, possibly around 18:30 towards Borgo San Dalmazzo, where the shuttle will take us back to the Village with a final comfortable journey of about 20 minutes.

Who it is aimed at

A fair amount of physical preparation is required for this activity, but you don' t need to be an experienced biker. Certainly a minimum of ability to ride a bike is absolutely necessary. The minimum age is 16 years, possibly accompanied by an adult.

We will use the first day to get used to riding the ebike, give you tips and practice the right way to safely tackle the rest of the route!
