Sports enthusiasts will not miss out either, because the village has many mountain-bike trails, in addition to the numerous hiking paths and walkways.

The area around Borghetto d’Arroscia was affected by the Barbarian invasions after the fall of the West-Roman Empire (476), and after that it was ruled by the Lombards and Franconians. During the Carolingian era, the village came under the jurisdiction of the Count of Albenga.

The formation of the first permanent human settlements took place in the early Middle Ages.The favourable location along the river led to the development of mills, workshops, foundries as well as agricultural plantations and orchards. In 1233 Borghetto d’Arroscia together with other villages were merged to form Pieve di Teco. The Republic of Genoa assumed the responsibility of governing the locality in 1522. With the advent of French rule, the village reverted back to the administration of the Ligurian Province and joined the First French Empire in 1805. In 1815 the region became part of the Sardinian Empire to begin with, and a little later the Italian Empire.

During the Second World War some sections of the brigade were stationed in Borghetto d’Arroscia and parts of the village were destroyed as a result of the war.  

From 1973 to 2008 the village was part of the mountain community of „Alta Valle Arroscia“, but it became independent in 2009 within the framework of the new regional law.
