Hiking in Italy Brich Paglie Piedmont Rain & Rainbow Fabulous Outdoors

A beautiful hike in the Alpi Biellesi, the alps surrounding the town of Biella in the Piedmont region of Italy.
This is a perfect area for easy to medium hiking tours, with mountain walks ranging from 1.5 hours to 4/5 hours depending on your fitness level, age and skills. There isn’t any danger or cliffs but you can eventually find some bits of via ferrata in the area if you wish to do so.

The closest airport is Turin Caselle which is about 35km away, otherwise Milan Malpensa, which is at about 150Km east.
Accomodation can be found either in the town of Biella, Ivrea, oer even by the beautiful Lake Viverone which is at about 15Km.

Cycling Tour Vlog: Rosazza Valle Cervo to Oropa Sanctuary Biella Piedmont Italy @fabulousport

The Biellese region is a fabulous land for cycling, offering several quiet roads to ride. Cycling is a great way to explore and discover these beautiful landscapes of the northern Piedmont region of Italy.
In this video I’m showing you a great climb, with quite a challenging gradient, reaching about 15%, but very rewarding and panoramic.

The climb begins once passed Biella, a lovely ride up through the Valle Cervo which is a valley that feels like time has stood still. The ride is very pleasant surrounded by very beautiful characteristic houses and picturesque villages along the river. Just before you get to the town of Rosazza, there’s a left turn on a bridge, then left again towards San Giovanni and Galleria di Rosazza, the tunnel that leads to Oropa on the other side of the mountain. However, whilst you are there, I recommend you cycle all the way to the end of the Cervo Valley, to visit Rosazza and Piedicavallo, both really interesting little villages.

It’s always more exciting to cycle up a hill from one side and descend the other side, as it really feels like travelling further.

The Sanctuary of Oropa has hosted a few Giro d’Italia stage finishes. It’s a great road to climb from the town of Biella, winding it’s way up to the Sanctuary.

Autumn is here ..it’s mountain bike season!

The good and warm summer weather’s lasted until mid September and then, within a couple of rainy nights and cloudy days, Autumn’s appeared. Temperature dropped by 10/15 degrees, and even more over the Alps, so that means one thing: It’s Mountain biking and Cyclocross season.

This is a beautiful landscape and terrain for mountain biking, it’s in the Piemonte region of Italy, only a few Km north of Turín. As you travel towards the town of Ivrea, you can see the Serra Morenica hill with the Mombarone mountain peak dominating it with it’s 2250m of altitude.

Mountain biking back down from Mombarone, the ride into the woodlands and trails of the Serra Morenica hill it’s very enjoyable.

In Autumn the fallen chestnut leaves and the wet pebbles can make the riding and bike handling experience quite challenging.

It’s definitely a region worth visiting for Mountain bike and Outdoor activity lovers, and I am a big fan and promoter of it.

Our dog Kikka is an Australian Shepherd who was abandoned in the woodlands of northern Italy, it took a while to gain her trust, but now as you can see in the video below, she follows me happily everywhere.

 

Filmed with Canon dslr and a combination of lenses, the Canon 50mm f/1.4 the Tokina 11-16mm and the Canon 70-200 F/4 using wide aperture to brighten the low light situation in the woods, and to keep the enphasis on the subjects filmed. I also used my favorite Manfrotto tripod to keep the images nice and steady. I hope you enjoyed the video and found it useful.
