Alpe Cavanna Hut is located at 1,470 mt on the slopes of Mombarone (2,312 mt) in Viona stream’s valley, at the border between Biella and Turin’s provinces. The view is so amazing going up to the hut, covering the plain and the hills of Ivrea morainic amphiteater, that you will feel like flying. The path switches between birch and larch woods, and grassy pastures. Gentian blooming during spring is outstanding.
