Do you think that hiking trails in Ossola Valley are most magnificent during spring and summer? Then you have not yet tried to immerse yourself in the poetic autumn colours of these Piedmontese valleys on the border with Switzerland.

From September to November, when the first snow has settled on the peaks and the landscape is enlivened with the golden colours of larches and the reddish shades of beech woods, the autumn trekking routes are a magical discovery: a pleasant temperature, uncrowded trails, clear skies and crisp air for unforgettable outdoor experiences!
Thanks to a collaboration with the EST Monte Rosa divisions of the Club Alpino Italiano, we have collected some of the most beautiful routes for experiencing autumn hiking in Ossola Valley.

These routes will allow you to get in touch with this wonderful land, discovering little-known corners of extraordinary beauty.

Each route, on the basis of the different points of interest along the way, has been assigned a predominant value and, to distinguish between them, they are combined with easily recognisable graphic symbols:

  • Route with predominant historic, artistic and cultural value
  • Route with a predominant value of traditional and peasant life (ovens, presses, mills and mallets)
  • Route with predominant natural value

Each route has:

  • An identification code (e.g. IA05) that gives you further information on the CAI – Club Alpino Italiano website in the routes section.
  • Information on options for using public transport.
  • The option to download the kmz track to see the route on Google Earth
  • The option to download the gpx file indicating the points of interest for a safe excursion.
  • A map to consult the route and the height profile.

The choice of individual route can be made on the basis of time of travel and ascent/descent.
