Tours and Itineraries in the Park

The diversified morphology of the territory gives the opportunity to carry out a number of tours along trails adequate to all tastes, requirements, and training, from the almost flat trail to mountain climbing.
The recommended period is summer, even if in Alpe Devero it is possible to practice both downhill and cross-country skiing. On the contrary, during the winter Alpe Veglia is only accessible with a pair of skis at your feet; however, the constant danger of avalanches makes the territory accessible only to well-trained and expert skiers, preferably led by a tour guide.
When the weather is good, there are more than sixty itineraries to explore the Park without retracing one's steps, even if the charm of the places and the natural landscape transform each time your visit into a completely new experience.
It is also possible to have brief and easy walks giving the opportunity to enjoy the enchanted atmosphere of the Park without having a special physical training. For further itineraries, you can have a look at the recommended bibliography. As far as mountaineering activities are concerned, it is advisable to contact the person in charge of the mountain tour guides.

Alpine Lakes

Alpe Veglia Devero Park is an area rich in torrents and alpine lakes, some of which are naturalistic jewels which are worth a visit. Without talking too much about Devero or Codelago Lake, which is a classical destination of the tours in the Park, it is without a doubt necessary to mention Lago D'Avino and Lago del Bianco in Alpe Veglia and Lago di Pojala, outside the borders of Alpe Devero but not too far.
