Arrival - By Car


By car

The best way from the north to Bordo is via Basel, direction Bern.  At Kandersteg you can put your car onto the train. (20 min through the tunnel, it costs 15 Euro). Then pass the Simplon pass direction Milano, until the exit "Villadossola".

From the north-east you may take the Gotthard road tunnel and then drive along the Lake Maggiore (only very skilled and brave drivers take the Cento Valli, another possible road). After Verbania you go direction Sempione and take the exit "Villadossola".

After the exit turn immediatly to the right, at the first roundabout straight ahead, at the second one to the left and at the third roundabout straight ahead.  From here you can see the church of Villadossola and you are very near the centre of the village. You don't have to go into the village and when you see a stone bridge on your left go straight ahead between the houses. Here the Valle Antrona starts. You pass through many small and beautiful villages. After Seppiana look at the mountain in front of you and you can see Bordo. Pass Viganella and then it's 1 km to Rivera. Pass the village and right after the last houses take a sharp bend to the right at the garbage cans. Put your luggage onto the cable car (see also description above).
Turn your car and take the little road towards the houses in sight (higher part of Rivera).  You can put your car on the left side of the road before entering the village (it's also possible to leave your car on the left side of the road when entering Rivera from Viganella.). Follow the road  up to the church and then take the hiking trail to Bordo. (See above)

Have a good journey!
