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.
If you need any more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Happy hiking to all!

It’s always a great emotion when a wildife photographer, animal and nature lover bumps into a wild animal in the woods.. occasionally it happens. However if you want to really get into wildlife photography and capture great shots, just wandering around through the woods is not enough.
Hunting is still quite a big thing over here in Europe unfortunately and therefore the animals have become really clever to increase their chances to survive.
Hiding is one of their best characteristics, so you have to be really patient and to train your eyes to spot them through the vegetation.
Another thing to consider is the direction of the wind, even when it’s just a little breeze, you want to make sure you are downwind to the animals if you want to have any chance in capturing them. Their ability of detecting a human being with their smell is way more powerful than ours. If you really want to increase your chances to see animals quite closely, you need to sit still and camouflage yourself through branches and leaves or, even better, to buy appropriate camouflage clothing.
Thank you for passing by and for reading this post, try these few first tips and.. good luck!

People often ask why we ride ..what is it about cycling that at a first look, it seems just a painful long term agony on a bicycle to get nowhere..or something like that. The fact is, it’s hard to explain. At first, it can feel quite daunting, but with patience, it becomes easier and you feel satisfied and proud of what you’ve achieved so far. After your ride, a refreshing shower, a cool drink and a bite to eat and you suddenly feel invigorated and alive, as long as you haven’t done too much of course.
Little by little, your body will do all the adjustments needed to make you perform better, stay out for longer rides and be willing to do more of it. In this short clip, I wanted to pass on some of the feelings, the sounds and the landscapes of a cyclist’s journey. It’s a short clip, part of a bigger documentary project, coming out in future episodes.

Located between Albertville and Bourg Saint Maurice, the Roselend Valley is a paradise for the lovers of the outdoors. The roads are nice and winding and they’re surrounded by fields of natural flowers, waterfalls and flowing streams of water.
In the middle of the valley sits the water dam with the stunning mountain peak overlooking at it. Whether you love mountain walking, hiking, road cycling or mountain biking or just lover of traveling through breathtaking landscapes, this is one place not to be missed.
The professional cycling Tour de France and the Criterium du Dauphiné have chosen this route for a few stages this year 2018.
Here below, a short video clip of a lovely Marmot spotted at the stunning mountain landscape of the Cormet Roselend in the French Alps.
A LOVELY MARMOT A short video clip from one of my wildlife photography documentaries.
This was captured in the Alps of France at the stunning Cormet de Roselend, with it’s water dam, waterfalls and breathtaking landscape.
Marmots are popular in the Alps and at this time of the year they are really nice and fluffy after the winter season.
There aren’t many places to stay up in the valley, but just below getting to the top, there are a few villages that have accommodation available, one of which is Areches Beaufort. Once at the top however, overlooking the dam, is the Chalet de Roselend , a warm and welcoming family run hotel, situated with the most breathtaking views.The Chalet de Roselend provides a very comfortable stay with breathtaking window and balcony views that make you really feel part of the stunning natural environment. The family owners and staff are very friendly and you feel like you’re at home immediately. The food is very tasty, with a set menu of local specialities and products from the region.
(Wikipedia: “The Roselend Dam is an arch-buttress dam located 5 km (3 mi) east of Beaufort in the Savoie department of the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It is located just west and below the Cormet de Roselend mountain pass. The dam was designed by Coyne et Bellier and construction began in 1955. The reservoir began to fill in 1960, the power station was operational in 1961 and the dam complete in 1962. It was constructed for the primary purpose of hydroelectric power generation and supports the 546 MW La Bâthie Power Station.“)

It’s been a very temperamental winter over the European Alps, lots of snow has fallen, followed by rapid temperature change. Suddenly Spring arrives with it’s beautiful clear skies, white clouds blown by the wind over the mountains, stunning sunrises and sunsets to be photographed.
It’s definitely my favourite season to shoot landscapes, but I also love Spring for the awakening of nature. Birds happily singing and busy flying to feed their little ones calling for food from their nest and other animals running around with their new borns. Sunrises and sunsets are pretty good to be captured all year round indeed, but in the Alps or in their proximity, you can still get the snow on the peaks in contrast with the green landscape at a lower altitude. At the same time, you don’t have to freeze yourself as you do in wintertime going up before the sunrise to set your gear for the shoot.
For this particular shoot, we were out for one of my photo-walks around the lakes as the sun was about to set creating these beautiful reflections in the water.

It’s a great little camera, to take it with you everywhere, and it produce good quality images. Get one on Amazon, see the latest deals here: https://goo.gl/8ZvLlH
Hello viewers. I’ve got this little camera, the Canon Powershot SX720HS, which is a pocket camera that I love, because I can take it with me on on all my outdoors activities however, I have never particularly liked this lens cover curtain that most pocket cameras have as I thought I was going to break it..
and in fact I did break it, and so I came up with a D.I.Y., solution.
I measured the outside of the lens, which is 55mm and I went to find a jar lid, and I found this one, pretty much of the same size, and I micro-adjusted with a tin-can opener to make it a snug fit.
You can make it as snug as you want, easy to take it on and off when you want to take a photo, and this way the camera lens is much more protected. I can put it in my pocket, without worrying, it can get hit without breaking anything anymore. So, just a quick tip for today’s video, I hope you like it and find it useful, because maybe this has happened to you as well.

A 1 minute time lapse with the wind blowing clouds and snow over the mountains Fresh snow on the mountain peaks by Fabulous Outdoors @fabulousport
Music Credits: “Fresh Fallen Snow” by Chris Haugen
Film recorded with Canon 6D Canon 70-200mm f/4 lens Manfrotto Tripod
Filmed in 1080p HD at 25fps then speeded up in post production, which is the simpler way to film and to record a time lapse video.
Time lapse is amongst the coolest filmmaking techniques, speeding up things that we are used to see going slow, giving a visually interesting and pleasant viewing experience. Adding a nice relaxing music and atmospheric sounds implements the power of the video footage.
Another way to create a time lapse video, for better quality and definition, is to capture multiple images a few seconds apart, then upload them all to the computer and adjust all the exposures and settings. After all that’s done, upload the images in windows movie maker, adobe premiere pro or other filmaking programs, and play them at the desired speed.
More time lapse tutorials and tips will be uploaded on this channel soon.
