  • Enchanted Valley, beautiful pond, managed retreat to good but such a long way to go. Polenta and stew with meat not excellent, homemade good but in microscopic doses. Correct account.

  • I had the opportunity several times to go at this lovely location ... and I find every time that it is always beautiful. Fairy ... is a beautiful circuit in which to be able to walk safely ... without being expert hikers ... to do

  • Snowshoe group snow a lot and during the night had put I think other 10/20 cm of fresh snow. The show all around was fabulous, even though the sky cloudy left no plan to have a sunny day, but the light was fantastic. We climbed, after booking at ristorante Alpino, we continued along the val Quarazza. Very nice, but going up towards the bottom of the Valley, we found some avalanches that have made life difficult and in fact security was lacking. Security vanished completely when we heard the noise of other avalanches in the mountains, then return ahead of time to the restaurant. Along the way, passing from "dead city," miners ' settlement in the working area, Crosses the nearby gold mines. The only draw back reading the signs site heavily polluted due to toxic and harmful waste in those days, even if stored in warehouses of reinforced concrete, and always on the signs "Please don't touch the walls". I would like to see the site in summer if what is written is true, land with blue colours!. Thank goodness there was snow and lots of it.

  • Artificial pond by the amazing colours in about an hour and a half of convenient walk from Macugnaga, a veritable road (dirt road) built a century ago by the Alps. Situated in a sunny Valley is an ideal place for picnics and walks, also for families. Close two restaurants offer the opportunity to enjoy delicious dishes of traditional cuisine. Just a pity that the water level is fairly low.

  • Small artificial lake near Macugnaga. There is a beautiful walk that branches into several paths. From the easier ones to the more challenging. Possibility to park the car right next to the Lake.

  • If you want to walk around in a fabulous place on Lake of the fairies is the place to be. You can walk through an easy path (about half an hour if you walk I decided). Once you reach you will find refreshment at bars and restaurants or take a picnic along the trails of the Lake. For those who love hiking can continue along the paths and discover truly lovely places.

  • Beautiful Lake, nice views, walks and for experts. There are two dining options for lunch and dinner and bar service. Initially this body of water was built by man for the dam of the river that runs through the Valley before being used for the production of electricity by mining companies. Today, however, the practical function combines tourists attracting families from all over Italy and beyond. Source "cercaofficina.it"

  • Really really great ... Pity we chose not one of the best times x go because the water was scarce, and so the show could be much better (avoid October). However it was worth it! Info: there are 2 restaurants at your destination, perhaps during the high season it's best to book; x Lake we parked for about 20 min and then walk Ove on a dirt road slightly uphill (to 1300mt somehow we have to figure out:).) Entirely feasible nor tiring ... don't expect Trek experts! ;)
