Maira valley trekking

Maira Valley (in Italian Val Maira or Valle Macra) is a valley in south-west of Piedmont region.

It is quiet and for many still unknown and offers totally unspoilt Alpine tourism. It is crossed by the Maira river: the first part of the valley is rather narrow with a series of narrow gorges and sections, the upper part is wider, opening out into vast basins. From there one can enjoy wonderful views over the highest peaks of the Cottian Alps.  In Maira valley you will discover local traditions, the provençal language, craft woodworking workshops, dairies and Merens horse breeding farms.
