Hiking near Turin and in Piedmont

Piedmont hiking trails

Hiking in Piedmont is a fantastic way to see the region and to find out more about the local way of life.


There are so many fantastic trails that you can follow if you do want to hike in Piedmont, but there are also some extremely steep and rocky paths that are perhaps best left alone unless you are a very experienced hiker. Some of the best hikes to do in the region are outlined below.

The Monte Rosa Animal Reserve offers visitors a walk that will occupy a leisurely few hours of an afternoon in the region.

The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife such as eagles, deer, and beavers, and you may well be surprised how brave the animals are, a fact that will allow you to glimpse far more views of them than you may otherwise expect. Make sure you remember your camerasbecause the animals will make great additions to your photo frame back home!

The lakes are, of course, always a popular option, and there are treks that can take a whole day solely focusing upon these lakes. Even if you only have a short amount of time in the region, it's worth dedicating a day or so to the lakes because they are truly stunning.

It's best to start out at Chialamberto and end up in Arona, with maps from local tourist centres showing you the best route in between. There are some decent accommodation options in Arona to choose from that will also provide you with a solid meal.

The woodland in the Sesia Valley is another popular option, although one that many choose to tackle by bike rather than by foot.
