Hiking in the Biella Alps


This two-centre holiday is based in Biella at the foot of the Alps and Oropa higher up in the Alps and takes in rolling countryside, mountain peaks, lakes, valleys and historical villages. This stunning and as yet undiscovered location offers dramatic breathtaking scenery and panoramic views. The walks are all guided by an expert park ranger who, knowing the area like the back of his hand, will be able to choose routes well off the normal tourist trails and point out the local flora and fauna.

This programme has been tailor-made for small size groups thereby allowing you to get off the beaten track and be treated as an individual rather than one of the crowd. This philosophy, which all of Paul and Laura’s “Italian Experience” tours follow, means that your holiday will have a personal touch that is difficult to find anywhere else.

Previous clients who have been with Paul and Laura have said :

“Very well put together,a truly Italian Experience”

“It was like being on holiday with a group of friends”

“well done to you both and many thanks”
