A Mountain Bikers’ Paradise

In the summer, the more than 80 km of cross-country trails in Cogne turn into extended biking trails, where bikers experience fantastic thrill-filled rides through rugged terrain inhabited by ibex and chamois, with eagles gliding overhead. If you’d rather not break a sweat, why not rent an e-bike and go for a leisurely ride?

Horseback Riding for Old and Young

What better way to be close to nature than on the back of a horse, riding through forests, along a brook at sunset or sun rise? Or better still, go for a trekking tour that takes several days and stops for the night in Alpine huts in the National Park. Maybe you’d like to race across the mountains like in Wild West movies or you prefer a leisurely trot over hill and dale. No matter! A guide is there to help.

Angling in the Midst of a Glorious Landscape

Experienced anglers and beginners discover a variety of angling playgrounds in Cogne: free fishing zones such as Grand Eyvia, Torrent de Grauson and Torrent Urtier; also no-kill zones in Epinel and the trout ponds in Lillaz and Aymavilles.
