Description

Would you like to combine amazing skiing with delicious food and wine tasting? Then you should definitely join me for this 9-day tour in Cuneo, Italy!

Also known as La Provincia Granda (Piedmontese for “The Big Province”), Cuneo is the fourth biggest province in Italy. It is located in southwestern Piedmont, an Italian region bordering France and Switzerland at the foot of the Alps. The area is famous for its sophisticated cuisine and wines, and also for its stunning skiing spots.

On this 9-day tour we’ll ski on some scenic slopes of the Maritime Alps: Riserva Bianca – Limone Piemonte (one of the oldest ski areas in Italy), Mount Pianard (2306m); the valleys of Saretto, Gesso and Stura; Vallone di Prefouns and Vallone del Salese.

In addition, we will enjoy incredible wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco, the best-known of the region, and delicious Italian food. We will also discover beautiful touristic attractions like Langa (Langhe), included in the UNESCO World Heritage list for its unique landscapes and long winemaking tradition. You can check the complete itinerary below.

So, if you want to experience all these sensations and more, please contact me. I am sure that this 9-day ski, food and wine tour in Cuneo will amaze you!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
