The Biella area in autumn offers some highly fascinating and interesting opportunities for tourism, with easy to reach destinations appealing to people with differing needs. A list of top attractions in the Biella Alps would certainly include Oropa, Candelo and the entire area within Oasi Zegna, in Trivero – Valdilana. Oasi Zegna is rich in paths to explore and panoramas to admire while relaxing in peaceful nature, not to mention the seductions of the local gastronomic offering: abundant, variegated and genuine.
Synergy between various players in the territory committed to green tourism (not only fun but also sustainable) is also enabling us to save energy by getting driven around: tour operator
