Where you can go starting from Chalet le Marmotte:
- Alta Via del Sale, one of the most beautiful white roads in Europe. Info and reservations: https://www.altaviadelsale.com/ita/#inline-auto911
- The 50 hairpin bends road is CLOSED. The fastest way to reach France and Liguria is Via Casterino: the road is not paved. It is a dirt road, passable with a fairly high car (no mini or golf, ok Panda) not necessarily 4×4, by bike it is very panoramic, beautiful even on a muscular MTB. It is a high mountain road, and for this reason we strongly advise you to drive on it only if you are very confident with mountain roads. You can look for it by entering ‘Casterino’ on Google Maps. To go to Casterino from Le Marmotte, turn right. Once on Colle di Tenda, from the Madonnina turn right following the signs for the Baisse di Peiyrafique. Continue on this dirt road for 14km. Once you arrive in Casterino, a 16 km paved road reconnects you to the Valle Roya state road (the one beyond the tunnel) and to Tenda. This is the only possible alternative to the Tenda tunnel. However, the safest and fastest alternative to reach Liguria is the Turin-Savona motorway (the closest toll booth is Cuneo).
Summer: from the spring opening of the road to the end of October
Winter: from December to April
