Chalet le marmotte is an excellent starting point for any type of excursion. For the less athletic, the Central Fort is a 20 minute walk away. For the more athletic we recommend the Rocca dell’Abisso trail. Trekking can be enjoyed in all seasons.
From June to early July you can appreciate the flowering of the rhododendrons. From July to September you will be accompanied in your trekking by cows in the mountain pastures. Finally, in September and October, our mountains are tinged with the colors of autumn and you can admire breathtaking foliage!
The Via del Sale is a popular destination for motorcyclists from all over the world.

To admire our mountains from a privileged point of view!
You will find us on the ski slopes of Limone Riserva Bianca, at the arrival of the Colle di Tenda chairlift. The departure of the chairlift is located in Limone Quota 1400.
There are many excursions for ski mountaineers: Fort Pernante, above the arrival point of the chairlift of the same name; Rocca dell’Abisso or Becco Rosso peak. After a snowfall, untouched slopes await you, crowned by the view of the Colle di Tenda forts. For your safety, we strongly advise the use of a local mountain guide.
In winter 2021, snowshoes are the protagonists. The track that starts from Limonetto is groomed by the snow groomer making access easier.
The ice climbing waterfall realized by Global Mountains above Napoleon’s Grotto will be ready in winter 2022!
…and remember…do not underestimate mountains! Take all necessary equipment!
