Valle Maira has managed to protect itself from concrete and practices that hurt the mountain, such as ski lifts. Free, green and unspoiled, it attracts slow tourism, at a slow pace, and outdoor lovers who wish to discover hidden paradises.

Often those who choose Valle Maira do so also because they are looking for a low impact holiday.
