Duration: 4-5 hours


  • The Valsesia PCV 1 bicycle path which passes right behind the Alpin Rider Center will take you towards the bottom of the valley till Balmuccia.
  • Following the course of the Sesia river, you will pass through woods, villages and hamlets. The track is always well signposted.
  • Once in Scopello the cycle path passes through the Chioso hamlet, pay attention to the crossroads before the climb to Alpe di Mera, with a nice up and down itinerary up to the Piane di Scopa.
  • The stretch is flat up to the Gole dei Dinelli where it continues on the right of the river after passing a beautiful Roman bridge. Be careful of the arduous route with steep sections that runs along this wonderful stretch of river, the Sesia Gorges! An E-bike is recommended.

  • The arrival is in Balmuccia where there are more options: return along the same route, follow a ring on asphalt with the possibility of deviating onto secondary roads with little traffic or by Bus/Shuttle.
