In the valleys or on the peaks of the Western Alps, an holiday in Piemonte is never just skiing, trekking and nature, but a real total experience. With peaks over 4,000 meters high, such as Monte Rosa, Monviso and the Gran Paradiso massif, Piemonte offers a natural colorful mosaic of 95 protected areas, ideal place for great outdoor sports and activities. Discover animals and landscape of surprising beauty at the Grand Paradiso National Park, founded in 1922 as first national park in Italy, and Valle Grande National Park, with its steep deep valleys, crystal-clear waters in gorges protected by overhanging walls, and charming views, from Mt. Rosa to Lago Maggiore. Then up to 4,559 meters, to the highest protected area in Europe, the Alta Valsesia Natural Park or at the Regina Margherita refuge, Europe's highest mountain hut, at 4,554 m. for a well deserved rest with breathtaking panorama. Piemonte awaits you.
