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.

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.

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.

Around Viverone in Piemonte, a landscape of vineyards, lakes and more.

A view of lake Viverone looking through the vineyards of Piverone. These two towns situated at the foot of the Serra Morenica hill, have the advantage of a fantastic climate due to the all day long exposure towards the sun, and the protection from the Serra hill behind of the chilly northern winds. They therefore have optimal conditions for agriculture, specializing in wines and kiwi groves.

Lake Viverone Piemonte Serra Morenica e dintorni
Lake Viverone Piemonte Serra Morenica e dintorni
The Lago di Viverone is a lake in northern Italy. Named after the town of Viverone, lies at 230 m AMSL between the districts of Biella, Vercelli and Ivrea in the area of morainic hills known as Serra. It has an area of about 6 km2 and a maximum depth of 70 m, and a perimeter of about 10.5 km. The lake is 3,500 m long and 2,600 m wide. The southern and western parts of the lake are rich in vegetation while the north part is built-up and includes hotels, camping sites and beaches.

Ducks, mallard, coots, grebes and gulls form the major part of the fauna; angling is a popular activity with catches including common whitefish, perch, tench, pike and catfish.

Viverone is a centre for day trips and the lakeside communities of Lido, Masseria, Comuna and Anzasco have recently been connected by a boat service.
Often at times the wind coming from the nearby Aosta Valley, clears up the mist and haze offering amazing views of the mountains in the distance and beautiful sunsets reflecting in the lake.

I love promoting this region as it is my hometown and I take pride in showing it to cyclists, walkers, horse riders and all other outdoor activities that can be easily locally practiced. It’s also very suitable for active family holidays and trips with the children. If you need any more information, dont hesitate to get in touch. Get out more, as it’s
