Trip Info

Have a unique experience as you enjoy this nature tour. Walk in the Valentino Park in the beautiful setting of the Grigna, a true open-air geological museum to discover the wildlife and fauna of the alpine flora. It is an exploration of a small but valuable museum, visiting and tasting in a farm to sample the handcrafted natural products.

Upon our arrival at Resinelli Plans, you will be greeted with magnificent plateau located above the village of Ballabio. We will have a guided tour of the mines of lead and galena on this impressive journey into the bowels of the earth. Learn about the life of the miners of past centuries. To reach the entrance of the mines, you will have to go on a downhill path.

After lunch, we will have an easy walk, slightly uphill, to Valentino Park. Here, you will see deer, badgers, foxes and squirrels. Learn about the biology and ethology of these animals, discover how to distinguish the different tree species, explore the impressive rocks of dolomite and limestone that dominate the territory. During the walk, we will have a guided tour of the Museum of Natural Science.

We will visit a farm specializing in the cultivation of berries and honey, with production of natural food products such as jams and syrups and royal jelly. There are also natural products for the beauty of the skin.

Your adventure awaits!
