Lost in Edelweiss

It’s not easy to find a natural expanse of edelweiss growing wild, but miraculously there are plenty to be found in the Mont Aviv Nature Park. Maybe it is due to the beneficial influence of the Madonna delle Nevi sanctuary on the shores of Lake Miserin which, together with the ancient pastures and the Savoy family hunting lodges, has to be seen by those who chose this two-day hike. A chance to also see firsthand some of the main Alpine herbs like yarrow, mugwort, génépi and arnica. And if you become lost among the park’s Alpine lakes, don’t worry: you can ask the marmots or chamois, quite widespread in these parts.
