Formazza

The Formazza Valley occupies the northern tip of Piedmont, which is wedged between the Swiss borders, in the heart of the Alps, and is the cradle of culture for the Walser population, a German-speaking people characterised by their ability to colonise inaccessible but undisturbed areas with their typical wooden houses and stone roofs.
The imposing Toce Waterfall, widely considered to be the Queen of the Alps, with its impetuous cascade of 143 metres, dominates the Valley.

Surrounded by nature, the Valley is a tourist resort that can be enjoyed all year round and which focuses on achieving sustainable tourism.

In winter, the two cross-country skiing trails at Riale and San Michele, each with a distance of 10 km, are the scene of spectacular national and international races and are used by Olympic training teams. The alpine ski-runs in the Valdo school camps and the Sagersboden championship track, the snowshoe trails and the numerous ski mountaineering routes (some of them cross-border) offer an excellent combination of snow, sport and nature.

In summer the dense network of high-altitude alpine shelters are base camps for the most experienced mountaineers and the alpine pasture manufactures of the prized Bettelmatt cheese, while the alpine lakes are hiking destinations for walkers who will discover a nature rich in flora and fauna.
The flavour of the land can also be sought through the kitchen, the production of renowned cheeses in which the scents of nature are transferred, and the tradition of ancient knowledge linked to the processing, cultivation and care that is required in pasture management.

The Formazza Valley, an immense mountainous area offers a remarkable natural beauty linked to a history and culture that is well worth discovering.
