The Valsesia in Piedmont is a paradise for those who seek unspoilt nature, both in summer and winter. In summer it invites you to go hiking, in winter its high mountains attract ski tourers. And in spring, when the snow melts, it becomes a Mecca for kayakers and fly-fishers.
The Rassa is famous among kayakers because the Teva Mountain Games used to take place here. Unfortunately, the hunger for energy is calling for new river constructions even in this unspoilt area, but resistance is stirring.
