The trip on Google Maps.
Horse riding in high Susa Valley. For fans it is a real show especially if done in the autumn period with the colors of the woods tinged of yellow, orange and red that combined with blue sky and green meadows create an unforgettable palette of colors. A six-hour trip with medium-difficulty starting at 1089 m of Signols and arriving at the Vazon village at 1650 m. The first part of the route takes place on the ski track connecting Oulx to Bardonecchia. At Beaulard you go up to the village of Château Beaulard and after a short stroll to visit the Alpine village, continue up to the village of Vazon, a small village of stone houses where you can eat at the Chardouse refuge typical dishes of the place. After lunch it goes down to the valley through thick forests to reach the Alvorada Horses Center in the late afternoon. An horse trekking for nature tourism in the mountains of the Susa Valley.
