A tourist and cultural pole, Oulx is also one of the main centres of the Alta Val Susa.
It is the presence of an important international railway station that makes the town a reference point for both Italian and French territory.
Its territory is rich in biodiversity, from the protected area of Lake Borello to the beauty of the surrounding slopes.
Connected by shuttle services to the Vialattea and Bardonecchia Ski resorts, Oulx maintains its tourist vocation by offering both winter opportunities, with some snowshoeing trails, and summer opportunities with numerous trekking routes.
Oulx is located on the route of the Via Francigena.
