Cycle across the Upper Salt Road, a spectacular ex-military white road that connects Piedmont and French Alps to the Ligurian Sea. 

It winds between 1800 and 2100 meters above sea level along the main Alpine watershed, near the French-Italian border, crossing mountain passes, hairpin bends and daring passages. 


The route, entirely unpaved almost until Pigna, crosses enchanting places such as the suggestive area of Carsene, with its almost lunar landscapes and rich in geological phenomena, and the uncontaminated environments of the Mediterranean Alps. 

It crosses the Marguareis Park and the Park of the Ligurian Alps, characterized by a rich biodiversity, the wonderful Navette Wood and it touches some military fortifications of the late nineteenth century.

 

The arrival is at the sea, in the town of Bordighera.

Do not miss the opportunity for a nice refreshing swim after a great adventure!
