Overview

The Mottarone situated between Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta, is considered one of the most beautiful natural balconies in the whole Piedmont, and not only. Its orographical formation allows the tourist's gaze to sweep over 360° from the Po Valley to the summits of the Alps. The visitor's eye is struck by the summit of Monte Rosa and by the seven lakes (Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta, Lake Mergozzo, Lake Varese, Lake Camabbio, Lake Monate, Lake Biandronno) lying in a natural basin, which give the impression you can take them with the hand of fantasy. The Mottarone is not only breathtaking view, but also land amusement and diversion in every season: it's possible to practice winter sports, go trekking, hand-gliding, make exciting descents from the top by mountain bike on properly marked paths, also renting a bycicle right on the spot, relax at the table with typical menus of the region in the characteristic restaurants. For nature lovers moreover, 300 metres from the intermediate stop of the cableway in the hamlet Alpino, we suggest to visit the Botanical Garden Alpinia with over 500 essences, unique of its kind for the typology of its plants, solely of alpine origin.
