Family activities

The entire province of Vercelli offers various activities to share with children.

The museums of Varallo, Borgosesia, and Vercelli organize activities specifically dedicated to families, while rice mills and wineries can be visited to better understand the production chain of the typical local products. What better occasion to let young tourists discover how much the work of humanity can be linked to nature and to the respect of nature’s cycles?

Many trails in Valsesia are suitable for children, and the Monterosa Ski facilities of Alagna Valsesia and Alpe di Mera, both in winter and summer, offer activities and trails perfect for all. And for the most courageous children, thrilling fun is guaranteed thanks to summer bobsleighing in Alto Sermenza.

Even the river can be perfect for activities to enjoy in full safety with rafting under the supervision of experienced instructors at the river sports schools, or you can try fishing to enjoy a more direct experience with nature.

A day spent exploring Alagna, unveiling the secrets of Walser culture, or Varallo to immerse yourself in the nature park of the Sacred Mount. For those who love history, the medieval alleys of Vercelli represent a wonder not to be missed and the opportunity to discover the centuries-old history of the capital.

There are so many events to enjoy: from the EuroPuppetFestiValsesia dedicated to puppet theater to the Fattoria in Città (Farm in the City) in Vercelli where kids can learn about farm animals. Also, the Carnivals of Santhià, Borgosesia, Varallo and Vercelli and Alpàa are a wonder, as well as the Panissa, Rana, and Agnolotto festivals and the livestock fairs in Valsesia. Discover them all!
