Presentation

Besides the charming tracts of coast, the Liguria Region comprises in its small territory a mountain area all to discover, where nature, history, culture and traditions are interlaced, telling the visitor of when paths and muletracks was covered for the transport down to the plain of the hay and for the commerce from the sea to the hinterland, from the hinterland to the sea.

The territory in which the Municipalities of the Comunità Montana Argentea are inserted - Arenzano, Cogoleto and Mele - is unique; the closeness of the mounts to the coast offers an extraordinary variety of atmospheres, landscapes, experiences.

The Alta Via - excursion route that connects the two extremities of the Liguria Region, following the tyrrhenian- Po watershed of the Ligurian Appennino and the Maritime Alps - is strength point of this territory, a spectacular balcony formed from mountains that stand at the sea. Unforgettable are the emotions to catch along the way: an exceptional panorama, than in the clear days of north wind sweeps from the coast to the alpine arc, the bloomed meadowlands in spring, the ice embroideries that the winter gives to cliffs and trees.

The two sides present different environments: on the one hand the narrow and evocative valleys that come down the sea, crossed in depth from fresh torrents and punctuated from black pines, clung to the cliff, on the other hand the sweetness of the wooded slopes that from the Beigua plateaux decline towards the Po plain. The way of the Alta Via acts as border to two different worlds, not only from the morphologic and naturalistic point of view, but also from that climatic one: on the one hand the Mediterranean climate of the coast, on the other hand that continental of the Po sides. On the long ridge there is always the wind and often brings the gaigu, a thick and humid fog that wraps the mountains, following the profile like a wave.

This web site will allow you to walk along the paths and to discover the secret beauties of the nature and the tracks left by the man, will offer you views of charming panoramas, emotions captured from the lens of a camera or contained in a film: if the images that will slide, changing to every season, make you feel the desire to know better this territory, you can choose between different tourist and excursion opportunities.
