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.

A Cyclist’s Journey – Fabulous Outdoors @fabulousport

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.

White Water Canoe Slalom Italian Championship U23 Ivrea 2018

Whitewater canoeing is the sport of paddling a canoe on a moving body of water, typically a whitewater river. Whitewater canoeing can range from simple, carefree gently moving water, to demanding, dangerous whitewater. River rapids are graded like ski runs according to the difficulty, danger or severity of the rapid. Whitewater grades (or classes) range from I or 1 (the easiest) to VI or 6 (the most difficult/dangerous). Grade/Class I can be described as slightly moving water with ripples. Grade/Class VI can be described as severe or almost unrunnable whitewater, such as Niagara Falls.

IVREA U23 ITALIAN WHITE WATER CANOE SLALOM CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

At the request of the Ivrea Canoe and Kayak Club, Hydrostadium accepted an expertise mission in the beginning of 2007. The aim of this expertise was the optimization of the last third of the course with a view to the organization of the World Cup Sprinting in June 2007.

The re-modeling of the end of the course makes it much more attractive. Moreover, the water level is higher and the final threshold with drop safer. ( Source: www.hydrostadium.com

It’s Spring your favourite season to shoot landscapes? Fabulous Outdoors

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.

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.

Visiting Borghetto sul Mincio Verona Veneto Italy Guide Travel Blog #FabulousOutdoors

A travel guide to this beautiful location situated at the foot of Lake Garda in Italy.
Valeggio sul Mincio is a village in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, located about 120 kilometres (75 miles) west of Venice and about 25 kilometres (16 miles) southwest of Verona. It is crossed by the Mincio river.
The economy is mostly based on agriculture, with some craftwork and industrial production.

————————————————
History:
Archaeological excavations in the Mincio valley include a Bronze Age settlements, some tombs dating to the Iron Age and some findings associated with the Etruscan civilization. A large Celtic necropolis, found in 1984 still partly buried under the current town, would prove the presence of that people from the 4th century AC and the 1st century DC.

The creation of the villages of Valeggio and Borghetto dates to the Lombard rule in northern Italy. The monastery of Santa Maria was founded here, on the Mincio shore, was founded here in the 12th century; later it was a priory of the Knights Templar. The large medieval fortifications which characterize Valeggio (Scaliger castle, the Visconti Bridge and the Serraglio difensive line) were built between the 13th and the 14th centuries. In 1405 Valeggio became part of the Republic of Venice, and subsequently lost its strategic role, becoming an agricultural center and a silkworms trading market.

After the fall of the Republic of Venice in 1797, Valeggio was included in the Cisalpine Republic. Later it was part of the Italian Republic (1802-1805) and, after some decades under the Austrian rule, of the newly unified Kingdom of Italy.

Some of the best skies are in Autumn – Fabulous Outdoors

Autumn is the season known for it’s fog and mist. However, quite often the thermal wind blows up and down the valleys, clearing up the sky and leaving as to beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

I’ll add to this post some more images, as now as I’m writing is just the beginning of that period of the year, by the alps of Italy.
