Once in San Maurizio, you start to glimpse the lake on the right hand side. Past the town continue until Alzo, from here you can take the detour of about 5 km (all uphill) to reach the "Madonna del Sasso" where is the seat of the homonymous church that looks over the lake with a lovely view. Going downhill, get back to the detour point and  continue to Pella, a charming village on the lake with a nice small harbor.
As you go along, you will get to Omegna passing through other small villages.
After visiting Omegna, take the SS 229 that runs along the lake towards Gozzano and stop in Pettenasco and Orta for a drink on the lake shore, with a splendid view of the island of St. Julius.
Back on the bike, you keep going on SS 229 until you get back to Gozzano.

From the hotel, take the road that leads to Maggiora and after the first 5-6 km you will see the first vineyards. Arrived in Boca, they travel on a series of dirt roads, through vineyards until you reach the village of Boca. Continuing along the same road you will arrive at Cantina Conti in Maggiora for a wine tasting and a light lunch.

Day 4

E-bike excursion through the rice fields (30 km)

Panoramic tour in the Novarese flat land, among wine hills and plains where farmers grow rice. These country roads are easy and very quiet, and will lead you through rice and corn cultivations, crossing villages with beautiful courtyards, and where agriculture is still deeply rooted.
