Alpe di Mera is an enchanted place. A small car-free village, at an altitude of 1,500 metres, with the most beautiful view of Monte Rosa in all of Valsesia. Here children can run and play safely, and parents or grandparents can accompany them to spend pleasant days thanks to the splendid exposure to the sun and the accessible altitude.
Come to Alpe di Mera to experience new adventures and discoveries with Meraviglio the squirrel explorer, who has brought to light two new wooden villages, in the Boschetto and Campo area! What is hidden along the paths, in the parks and in the woods?
Who is Meraviglio and what does his story tell?
"Like many places in the world, Alpe di Mera also takes its name from the explorer who discovered it, Marvel the squirrel. In distant times, when nature was so wild as to make the territory impenetrable, a little being small enough to be able to enter it without difficulty, sifted through this land, certain that it was hiding something interesting from it. But the small size was not the only advantage of Meraviglio: he could climb the tallest trees, up to twenty meters, and jump almost flying from one top to another. This made him a perfect explorer, only he could do it!
And so it was that after years of research, his suspicion was confirmed: the remains of an ancient civilization had been completely hidden by vegetation, but he had found them. Of course, how strange this civilization must have been.. a large ship next to a small lake, a raft, strange communication systems, tribal masks, underground tunnels and rope bridges.. certainly they were very skilled builders, but also navigators, and above all they loved have fun.
But what did they want to do with their original secret passages, forts and boats? This Marvel was never able to discover it, but perhaps you can do it, together with its great-grandchildren of course, who still roam these woods in an attempt to complete the search. If, looking up, you see one of them sneaking up the trunk of a tree, call him: “Wonderful?”, and you will surely become great exploration friends!”
