A LAND TO LIVE
The area where BUT will take place, Valle Formazza, it offers beautiful landscapes and mountains, rich of tracks from the 1.000 m to the lakes and the majestic mountains of High Valle Formazza. Also the relax and wellness is part of the territory thanks to the thermal water of Premia Terme, in the near Valle Antigorio.
A unique waterfall
The major attraction is surely the stunning Cascata del Toce, a waterfall with a jump of 143 m, the highest in Europe.
The same region of Antigorio and Formazza, with it´s crossing places to Switzerland has represented for years really important commercial ways. During the past years was the principal access to Europe and is rich of history and culture; the track really tells the adventure of people, the Walser, who were able to conquer the Alps and the daily fight of men and women to live among the mountains, which also offers high quality products as the Bettelmatt Cheese .
