Val Sesia Alpin Rider Center

Nature and Sport at 1° place: the Valsesia Outdoor project

Alpin Rider Center and its rich outdoor offer attracts both trekking, cycling and climbing enthusiasts and river sports such as kayaking, rafting and canyoners.

A new outdoor center in Valsesia, a new adventure to experience together!

The project was born from a deep love for the mountains, the territory and river sports. Alpin Rider Center would like to be your BASE, that is, the meeting point and reference for all Riders who wish to explore Valsesia by kayak, on foot, on a raft or on a bike. 

Today, our Outdoor center offers:

  • A small shop selling sporting goods related to the outdoor world, with particular attention to whitewater sports.
  • A nice Foodtruck where you can refresh yourself, eat excellent burgers and delicious sandwiches, or cool off with beer, cocktails and much more.
  • A Solarium space with swimming pool dedicated to our activities, such as eskimo rolls or kayaking lessons for younger children.
  • A large green space with the possibility of resting on comfortable deckchairs and hammocks, and a free barbecue area.

  • Valsesia: a wide range of open air activities.
  • The green heart of Piedmont between tradition and outdoor sports. Valsesia is a true natural oasis for outdoor sport activities.
  • In the summer season, Alagna, 8 km from our centre, is without a doubt the queen of mountaineering, thanks to its dense network of tracks and routes that reach the entire upper valley and the Monte Rosa glaciers.
  • In winter, the Monterosa Ski area connects Alagna Valsesia with 2 other valleys, the Gressoney and Champoluc valleys, offering one of the largest ski resorts in the Alps with 180 km of slopes around the Monterosa plateau.
  • River activities such as kayaking, rafting, canyoning and hydrospeed have a cutting-edge field of action on the Sesia. The Sesia and its tributaries are among the last free waterways in Italy, still intact, immersed in nature and waiting to be discovered! The upper stretch of the Sesia, the Alpin Sprint, is the most famous and funniest for kayakers, and our center is located right at the take out of this pearl!
  • Furthermore, a fantastic bicycle road crosses the entire Valley, passing right behind our centre, and will allow you to discover charming Alpine villages and uncontaminated woods.

Accommodation and sleeping in Valsesia: outdoor holidays

ARC is currently working on a small and ecological building that will allow us to host you just in front of our base. This project includes 5 rooms and a restaurant that could be available all year long.

As we work with great commitment and passion to build this dream project, our objectives are clear and defined, but large projects also require longer times. For this reason, while waiting to build our new ecological structure, we invite you to book in the following structures.

Bar and food truck with large sun terrace

To celebrate the end of a day surrounded by rapids and unspoiled landscapes, Alpin Rider Centre invites its visitors to take a seat on the sun terrace and order something to eat or drink with friends.

Come and visit our fantastic Food-Truck!
Sandwiches, hamburgers, platters of cold cuts, sweet crêpes and other delicacies – the perfect partner to your outdoor day. Don’t miss the chance to taste Z'am Steg beers, a real local beer produced right in Mollia and poured on tap at the ARC bar.
Aperitivo is our speciality - tasting local meats and cheeses, you can refresh yourself with some pre-dinner drinks in a super location next to the river.
