The Lanzo Valleys

Overview

Sport, nature and the history of Italian mountaineering

The Valli di Lanzo, in local dialect Valade ‘d Lans, is the beating heart of the Graian Alps. It is located in Piedmont, surrounded by some of the region’s highest peaks, on the border between Italy and France. The historic cradle of Italian mountaineering, this valley actually comprises three other basins: Valle di Viù, Val d’Ala and Val Grande.

Here, mountaineering, rock climbing and hiking are the order of the day, and you will certainly never get bored. From fishing and foraging for edible herbs to trekking in summer and winter, from hiking the great trails to major winter sports, including curling. Visitors who are looking for an adrenaline rush can climb the routes that are part of the history of mountaineering in Turin. Other activities include paragliding or kayaking down streams.

The Lanzo Valleys are equipped to offer sports, activities and entertainment that are accessible and affordable to all guests, offering a fantastic opportunity to experience great thrills and discover a rich territory.
