28 March 2021 to 31 December 2023
Meeting with our expert hiking guide to start an easy and fascinating trekking route through the countryside to discover traditions that are still so deeply alive as to create a strait link between countryside and city.
The first town we will meet will be Caravate, a small urban center protected by the sloping hills towards Maggiore Lake, surrounded by greenery from which unexpected landscape ideas can be seen and where you can grasp the charm of simple things.
Walking along the suggestive countryside where the placid river Viganella flows, we will cross an uncontaminated countryside that at the beginning of the 1900s already boasted of important presence of artisanal and agricultural activities, as evidenced by some mills still functioning today, an oil press, a hydraulic sawmill, a continuous fire furnace and brick factories. There are many mills in this portion of the Province of Varese (such as the Mulino dei Frati) that in 1700 began to be built next to the farmhouses for grinding rye, wheat and other cereals.
Lunch in a restaurant to enjoy simple cuisine with genuine flavors: not only healthy food, but also the rediscovery of cultural traditions and sociability, important components of the well-being of a community where agriculture is everything.
We will visit some farms where you will have the opportunity to buy cold cuts, cheeses, yogurt, fruit and vegetables directly.
