The first thing you see when you arrive in Cicogna is our visitor center: we are at the beginning of the village, on the only access road. We welcome you inside a multipurpose room on the ground floor, but on the many sunny days we also expand outside, because we really like talking to visitors, who come from all over Europe, and who often tell us about the their experience in Val Grande.
Here you can get information on the most suitable excursions for you, on the weather, on accommodation facilities, on scheduled events, on the entertainment activities that we organize during the summer season, with many free materials. If you are interested in learning more about the topics or in taking home a souvenir of the Val Grande you can visit our small but well-stocked shop.
To organize an excursion with a guide, the National Park recommends the Official Guides. With them you can organize a day trip or a multi-day crossing, using our hostel as a base of departure and arrival, not only to stay overnight, but also during the day. All our work is inspired by the principles of Sustainable Tourism, which we put into practice by following the actions planned under the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism.
At the visitor center there is a free wi-fi service available to all visitors, very useful considering that the mobile phone signal does not reach Cicogna.
