The Veglia-Devero Natural Park, a complex of high valleys enclosed by the Antigorio, Divedro and Formazza Valleys, is one of the loveliest places in this area and in the whole of the Alps. It has a wealth of fascination and is perfect for hikers who want to experience Alpine nature at its most splendid.
The park features high mountain scenery, with woods of larch, mountain pine and Norway spruce growing to an altitude of over 2,000 m.
Invariably present in the landscape are the extensive cattle pastures of the ancient rural civilization. The whole area is rich in streams, rivers and Alpine tarns. Bird and animal life abounds too.
There is a vast network of marked trails, including straightforward hiking trails and others aimed at expert climbers.
The park is covered with snow for as long as 7 months a year. You can go downhill skiing in Alpe Devero, but the park is especially popular for ski mountaineering, with a large variety of itineraries.
