On horseback on the tracks of King Arthur in Vergante

A summer day on horseback on the paths of the Vergante, green area between Lake

Maggiore and Lake Orta. Keep the Camelot riding school in Massino Visconti as starting

point: to reach it, leave Lesa continue towards Massino

Visconti and once you have passed the village climb towards San Salvatore. And finally


Matteo will follow you step by step helping you prepare your day in the best possible

way… on horseback! He will assign you the most suitable horse. Moreover, before leaving,

you will visit the saddle room to find the right size hat: it is always best to ride in


Leaving the stables, head towards the woods. A few minutes of asphalt immediately

follow by the path to San Salvatore.

It will take around a quarter of an hour to reach Cascina Pianzaghi, welcomed by an

immense green stretch…

The ride continues: amongst green stretches and wonderful views the path leads to an

exceptional panoramic terrace, from which the view spans over lakes and mountains…

a breathtaking spectacle, even more emotional as combined with the joy of sharing it

with our horse friends!

It is time to return to the riding school, following a path that loops back to the starting point.

There are many other routes in this area: from the most demanding of 2 or more hours

(for example to Monte della Croce di Tapigliano or Sasso del Pizzo) to the possibility of

organising whole day treks: whilst novices, using well-trained horses, can follow simple

paths of an hour, for example, those on the hills overlooking Massino Visconti offering,

on one side, a striking view of the three lakes and, on the other, infinite landscapes up

to Monte Rosa. Rides, whose main aim is that of relaxing surrounded by nature and

experiencing unsatiable emotions. (For more information or to book a ride call Matteo
