Mappa Val Chiusella
The Valchiusella valley is approximately 25 km long and is located on the boundary of the province of Turin and the Aosta Valley, just a few kilometers from the provinces of Biella and Vercelli.

The Chiusella river, from which the valley takes it’s name, flows through the entire area to then flow into the Dora Baltea river about 10 km south of Ivrea.

Despite it’s area of just 143 square kilometers, the Valchiusella valley offers an extraordinary variety of natural landscapes as well as villages, farms and pastures.

 

SPORT IN VALCHIUSELLA

 

CLIMBING

Climbing

Climbing on Traversella’s rock (gneiss) is possible all year round. Most of
the climbing walls are south and south-east facing, at a height between
1000 and 1300 meters.
Spring and Autumn are, as always, the best times for climbing. In summer it
can be hot but with the hundreds of routes among all the sectors to choose
from, it’s possible to climb in “cool” spots, thanks to the presence of large chestnut
trees giving large spots of shade between one route and another. In winter,
thanks to the favourable exposure, climbing is always possible, and often ideal
conditions can be found in January and February.
