The mountain between Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta
LAKE MAGGIORE AND MOUNT MOTTARONE: A COMBINATION OF UNIQUE PANORAMAS!
The mountain a few steps from the lake
Mottarone is located between Lake Maggiore and Lake Orta and it is considered one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the region of Piedmont and beyond.
Its orographic formation allows the eye to span from the Po Valley to the peaks of the Alps. What catches the visitor’s attention is certainly the peak of Monte Rosa and seven lakes (Lake Maggiore, Lake Orta, Lake Mergozzo, Lake Varese, Lake Comabbio, Lake Monate and Lake Biandronno). Mottarone is the perfect place to enjoy in every season: winter sports, but also trekking and mountain biking in the summer. Try Alpyland, a thrilling sledge-lift ride at full speed down its slopes! You may also try the many typical local dishes in charming restaurants.
