Bordo

Arrival

 

Dear guests

For a better orientation you find here a description of the way to Bordo.

 

By train


The connections are quite good. From Basel it takes two and a half hours to arrive to Domodossola with direct connection . From Milano it takes about two hours. In Domodossola you will find the bus station 20 m to the left of the train station when you leave it at the main entrance. Look for the bus with destination Antrona. It's possible you will have to take two buses: the first directed to Macugnaga (it leaves at 18:20) and the second bus in Villadossola (ask the bus driver). On sundays there are buses only in July and August!

With the bus you go up to Rivera. It stops in front of "Osteria Mezzavalle". Here you can relax and drink something before you start going up to Bordo.
Continue the main road by foot until the end of the village. You will have to take a sharp bend to the right where there are the garbage cans.
If you look ahead you will see the cable car with the writing Bordo. You can put your luggage on it under the blue awning.  Then turn to the right and head towards the houses in sight. After about 200 m you will get to the church of Rivera. On its right the hiking trail to Bordo starts. It takes you about 25 min and you will climb about 200 m high. Be sure to have a torch with you as well as good shoes!
 
Once you arrive in Bordo go straight ahead until you reach the main square where there are tables and chairs. There is the entrance to the dining room. Help yourself with something to drink and ask someone to pull up your luggage. It's easy to find  someone to help you in this part of the village .
