The Valsessera can be climbed up by car from Borgosesia, where its creek flows into the Sesia river which will carry its clear waters up to the Po river.
You soon reach Crevacuore, Pray and Coggiola, small towns where the most important wool factories in the Biella area had their headquarters until the 1980s.
Here the road climbs and leads to Valdilana where, in Trivero, the Panoramica Zegna road begins: 26 km of nature, history and panoramas.
This road was built in the years between the two wars by Ermenegildo Zegna and is still at the center of the valorisation of the territory and environmental protection which is at the origin of the Oasi Zegna protected area.
The best way to know Valsessera is travel along the Panoramica Zegna by car, motorbike or bicycle.
Recommended stops along the way are:
Casa Zegna in Trivero (cultural and exhibition center, Ermenegildo Zegna historical archive)
Conca dei Rododendri (a garden in the mountains, where rhododendrons of different colors bloom in May)
the Sanctuary of San Bernardo (a very short walk to enjoy a magnificent panorama at 1400 meters above sea level)
Bocchetta di Margosio (to effortlessly enjoy the spectacular view of Monte Rosa)
Bielmonte (an ideal ski resort for families and active in all seasons)
Bocchetto Sessera (to access the Alta Valsessera on foot or by mountain bike up to the sources of the Sessera)
Bosco del Sorriso at Bocchetto Sessera (a path to discover the effects that trees have on us)
Alpe Artignaga (reachable in a short time from Bocchetto Sessera)
For hikers and bikers, the main access points to the Valsessera are instead the Bocchetto Sessera, the Bocchetta di Luvera, the Bocchetta di Margosio, the Bocchetta di Stavello, and Castagnea, starting points of numerous paths and dirt roads, including the Frà Dolcino itinerary and the Bielmonte - Alpe di Mera dirt road.
