Along this road, which leads up to the village Spruga, there are some fantastic villages, built on sunny terraces with an interesting traditional architectural style.
Numerous internationally renowned writers and artists of the past and present found and still find the Valle Onsernone the ideal place for inspiration, thanks to the extraordinary and up to this day intact natural and human surroundings. The natural evocative beauty of this valley is the perfect setting for a hike through its magnificent woods or to the highest mountain peaks.
From Vergeletto a ride in the small Zott-Alpe Salei cable car takes you to the enchanting Alpe Salei at over 1700 metres. A hike through green larch woods then leads to the idyllic Laghetto dei Salei lake - or up to Monte Zucchero from where you enjoy stunning panoramic views of the surrounding mountain ridges and valleys. Not to miss out on in this alpine region is a visit to the Capanna Salei - where seated on the sunny terrace of the establishment run by Illenia and Gianluca you can indulge in delicious local specialities. And whoever wishes to spend even longer in such a peaceful setting surrounded by nature, simply stays a night in the alpine hut to make their home a day later!
