The mountain pass Colle di Nava shares its name with the local town. They are both close to the “Via del Sale” (Salt Road) in Liguria, and form the perfect starting point for our high-level experience. The Via del Sale was built in the Middle Ages for transporting salt from Ventimiglia to Limone Piemonte, and was later used as a military road to link the forts along the border between Italy and France. Today it forms a wonderful offroad route stretching the length of the Maritime Alps and taking you through exquisitely beautiful, wild landscapes of mountain and sea. Offroad riders attracted by breathtaking views rather than by particular challenges presented by the trail will enjoy this tour at its best. Accompanied by our tour guides you will discover the hidden routes leading off the more well-worn trails. Amongst other places these hidden trails will take you up to Pizzo
d’Ormea at an altitude of 2500 m above sea level.
