Two days to discover the Maira Valley, a true pearl of the Cuneo area which contains uncontaminated nature, ancient history and Dolomite landscapes uncommon in this part of the Alps. We will immerse ourselves in the special atmosphere of these places with a stay dedicated to hiking, good food and sharing.

During the weekend we will stay at the welcoming Lou Lindal Refuge in the Preit di Canosio village in the upper Maira Valley in a very suggestive context. The refuge is easily reachable by car and during our stay we will make two excursions that will take us to explore some of the most beautiful places in the area.
