Sporting activities will also be offered such as visiting a forest adventure centre, via-ferrata, swimming in the rivers etc…
You will be participating in this heritage site’s development project, which aims to open the silver mine to the public. Since 2011, volunteer workcamps have been reviving the accessibility to this site, both above and underground. Archaeological digs have also been taking place since 2009. The Vallauria mine was exploited between the middle ages and 1930. Today the site represents an example of remarkably well conserved historical and geological heritage, and is one of the most important mines in the Alps.
You will be working in an underground environment. Not recommended for claustrophobics! Some rocks will be heavy and difficult to move.
