Welcome to





Val Grande is a wonderful valley in northern Italy which still is a marvelous paradise of nature and wilderness, far away from civilization.

The national park Val Grande even calls itself the biggest wilderness-area in the alps. In Val Grande you can do easy hiking or trekking tours of two or three days. The most exciting tours are documented in the german version

Val Grande is situated between Verbania, Domodossola and Malesco. One can reach it from Switzerland by passing the Simplon tunnel or from Locarno following the valley Centovalli. From Milan the are direct trains to Verbania.
