Back to the list


Hi. I'm Fides, I'm from a small village in Incarojo Valley. I adore my land; culture, history and tales, landscapes, hidden and well-known treasures. I also like to get by dishes and recipes, first of all cjalsons, sweet filled dumplings. It's a pleasure to hand on people what my land handed on me.

Breathtaking landscapes

Rivalpo – Cabia (Arta Terme) easy two hours trip, an old  side trail of Via Julia Augusta, that led to high pasture lands and to Austria. Wonderful wiews at Mount Sernio and Mount Palasecje.

Starting from Rivalpo village you walk along a narrow road and you meet woods, brooks, ravins,  a ruined mill. At last you arrive in Cabia village, renown for its spirits distillery.

Trip: 2 ours
