The Mountain Between Two Lakes: Mottarone

With its 1,491 meters of altitude, Mottarone separates Lake Orta from Lake Maggiore, which is why it is known as “the mountain of the two lakes".

From the peak, on particularly clear days, it is possible to see seven lakes split between Piedmont and Lombardy.

A mountain that, till the beginning of the last century, was a place of summer grazing for cattle, scattered with shelters for shepherds, for hay and spontaneous tourists who ventured there.

Over the years, thanks to its proximity to Milan, Mottarine has become a favorite spot for naturalist painters from Lombardy who "loose" their way as they retrieve rural motifs in person.

It is now a place perfect all year round. In winter, skiers and snowshoers can take advantage of the ski lifts for a run or two. While in summer, green pastures and breathtaking scenery are ideal for relaxing with one's family or hiking-lovers.


The perfect place for taking a walk, staying in contact with nature and getting some fresh air.


Alpyland Mottarone - Just like a rollercoaster

Alpyland is the amusement park at the top of Mottarone, a place where the eye is lost among the peaks of the Alps, the beautiful lakes and the Lombard lands.

On the summit you can experience the sparkling experience of the Alpine Coaster, a bobsled roller coaster opened in both winter and summer. Fun for everyone and for all ages (from 4 years old and up).

The Alpine Coaster is like a roller coaster where each rider gets to decide how fast  the ride goes! Two-seater bobs have a braking system, the passenger in the rear seat can control the speed. The track is 1200m long and runs over a height difference of 100m.


open year-round

From Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm

Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 6pm

In winter (from December to March), the bobsled roller coaster is opened only on weekends and during the Christmas holidays. During the summer (April to October) the track is opened daily.

In November, the structure is closed.

If wanting to visit during the week, it is recommended to send an email to check the opening and closing hours.
