Description

One of the best experiences you can have during the winter in Emilia are the excursions in the snow in the Apennines of Piacenza wearing snowshoes, around Prato Grande.

Located at 1450 mt, on the left of the Nure river, in the municipality of Ferriere, from Prato Grande you can enjoy the view of the Apennines of Piacenza and Liguria. It is also the junction of several C.A.I. pathways, among which is the one going to the waterfalls of the Lardana stream, also known as Eagle Waterfall.

Pro Loco in Ferriere has organised from January to April 2019, trekking excursions on the Appenines using snow rackets, during the day but also at night, as well as wonderful parties at  Baita Monte Ragola of Prato Grande.
Monte Ragola Lodge offers food every Sunday and during holidays.

Dates for all excursions may vary according to weather conditions. Time and meeting spot will be communicated upon booking. Check our calendar for new events that may be added according to requests.
