Weekend Beigua GeoPark


Day 1 – Welcome to Beigua Geopark!!

Arrival at Prariondo (inside the Beigua Park) on your own.

Dinner and overnight at the Rifugio di Prariondo.

Day 2 –“ALTA VIA DEI MONTI LIGURI” Stage num20

Spectacular hike along the stage 20 of the “Alta Via dei Monti Liguri”, perhaps the only “alpine” trekking by the sea. This stage of the Alta Via is a beautiful journey, various and not difficult, on a wide nearly straight ridge. On clear days the view is really breath-taking: from the sea, lying almost beneath our feet, to encompass a large part of the Alps. There are many connections with the paths leading to some of the most scenic peaks of this stretch of the Alta Via. Dinner and overnight at the refuge.

Day 3 – Nature Trail of the “Torbiera del Laione”

Straight from the refuge, for those who prefer not to move the car, the Nature Trail departs to discover the precious and fragile habitats of the “torbiera del Laione”, the most important wetland of the Beigua Geopark. Ideal itinerary to see the many flowers and geomorphological structures of the Beigua plateau, in particular the spectacular “Rivers of stones” and “Fields of Stone”.

Day 3 ALTERNATIVE – Sassello and Deiva Forest

Transfer by car on your own from Prariondo to the village of Sassello. From here there is a loop path running through extensive forests of spruce and Douglas firs, black and Scots pines, as well as mixed forests of oak and other broad-leaved trees. Do not miss the many typical products of Sassello to be bought in the town shops!
