Bardonecchia

Overview

The pearl of the Piedmontese Alps

Located in the heart of Alta Val di Susa, Bardonecchia is a typical mountain resort that combines the charm of nature with the comforts of the city. Just 55 miles and an hour and a half’s drive from Turin, it’s the first town you come across after driving through the Frejus tunnel from France. Thanks to the international railway line Turin-Bardonecchia-Modane, it can also be reached by train.

If you’re a fan of cross-country skiing and snowboarding, you’ll adore this resort. Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you can find the right piste for you. For beginners, there’s Campo Smith: three loops totalling 18 miles. For intermediate and advanced skiers, Pian del Colle will keep you entertained. Finally, the most experienced and fittest winter sports fans can choose the very demanding 14-mile route connecting Sauze d’Oulx to the Valle Stretta di Bardonecchia.

There’s also no shortage of things to do for those who prefer to hike or mountain-bike along paths, mule tracks and military roads from the valley floors to the mountain peaks, from 1300 to 3500 metres above sea level. One of the most impressive hikes is the one to Lago Verde, 6 miles from Bardonecchia: drive just over 5 miles to Grange di Valle Stretta, then continue on foot. You can then enjoy a walk of about 45 minutes, with 100 metres of ascent, before you reach the crystal-clear waters of the lake, surrounded by rocks and fir trees.
