A journey to the heart of the mountain to discover the only Italian gold mine turned into a museum? A sooty afternoon in the unmissable Museum of Chimney Sweepers? A close encounter with Father Christmas in his grotto? Or BimbinDom in Domodossola, an entire event dedicated to kids’ entertainment?

Children are always guaranteed a fun time in the Ossola Valley.

There are many different activities for children: guided excursions, trips with mountain guides, summer camps, canyoning adventures and climbing walls. These experiences, which are all specially designed for children, will make a holiday in Ossola Valley truly special.

Adrenaline is child-friendly in the adventure parks in Alpe Lusentino di Domodossola, San Domenico di Varzo, in Divedro Valley and Santa Maria Maggiore, in Vigezzo Valley.

Activities for children who love nature and animals? Ossola Valley is full of horse riding routes supervised by active, qualified instructors. For an educational experience, children can visit the Road Safety Education Park and La Baitina ski resort in Druogno, Vigezzo Valley, which combine education and entertainment.

After exploring the outdoor world, children can amuse themselves with diving in the Domodossola pools, water games (a time when adults can relax) at the Premia thermal baths and minigolf courses in the beautiful Santa Maria Maggiore pine forest, not far from Domodossola’s old town.

In the winter, many resorts in the Ossola Valley ski area are the perfect destination for children thanks to the well-organized Kinder Park, skating rinks and tubing.

In Ossola Valley, children can also have fun travelling by train: throughout the year, a trip along the scenic Vigezzina-Centovalli railway will thrill both children and adults.
