I Sapori della Balconata - Balconata's Flavors - is  a “delicious” hike not to miss on Sunday, August 27th, a wonderful food-and-wine hike among Upper Tanaro Valley's boroughs discovering nature and a land filled with history and beauty.

The walk is divided into five stops and is organized in guided groups departing at different times with just one goal in mind: enjoying this extraordinary area of the Valley while tasting local dishes from Ormea paired with prestigious Piedmontese and Ligurian wines.

Departure in groups from 9am to 10.45am. Booking is required.

Balconata di Ormea is a 40km-long trail at an average altitude of 1200 m, located in the municipality of Ormea, in the Upper Tanaro Valley.

Not too demanding, the trail is suitable for everyone
