Hiking in #Valtellina means discovering new and ever-changing amazing views. Old towns and protected natural reserves, easy footpaths that follow streams and steep trails leading to high peaks. You have a wide choice. For expert hikers, the Alta Via della Valmalenco (8 stages) beckons. It is a 130-km journey dominated by the mountain peaks Pizzo Scalino and Pizzo Bernina. The Sentiero Roma takes you through the mountains in Val Masino. In Valchiavenna, the hiking trails "Via Spluga" and "Via Bregaglia" are wonderful. The "Sentiero Rusca" goes from Sondrio to Thusis (Switzerland). Other interesting hiking trails are the "Gran via Delle Orobie", the "Sentiero della Pace" in upper Valtellina, which crosses the battlefields of the First World War and the "Via Alpina in Valtellina", a long itinerary in 342 stages that crosses eight countries of the Alpine Chain: the Valtellina is part of this fascinating journey with 14 stages from the Stelvio Pass to the Valchiavenna. And, finally the "Via del Vino e del Sale" (from Bormio to Switzerland) and the "Via dei Terrazzamenti", from Tirano to Morbegno, through terraced vineyards and old towns: #wonderful!

Vai a Nature and Landscape



Livigno (1816 m a.s.l.) lies in the centre of the Rhaetian Alps, between the Stelvio and the Bernina passes. Livigno was a property of the Count of Bormio and achieved its administrative autonomy in 1816. The customs benefits, which had already been ratified by Napoleon and Austria, were confirmed in 1948, as the duty-free area was declared. Livigno is Italy’s second highest town council and is called for this reason the “Piccolo Tibet” (Little Tibet). Today this village is a best-known destination for branded shopping: clothes, electronics and so on. It is laid on a 15-km long valley crossed by the Spöl (Aqua Granda), tributary of the river Inn, which – in turn – is tributary of the Danube. The winter season goes from November to May. Livigno is considered as one of the top-destination in Europe thanks to its modern ski lifts and state-of-the-heart ski runs and trails and is able to offer many opportunities for the summer season too: it is a paradise for all mountain lovers and keen bikers looking for breathtaking panoramas. Indoor fitness and sport at Aquagranda too, a cutting-edge facility provided with the best-equipped gyms and a wide swimming pool. Art and culture find their full expression in the parish church of the Natività di Maria Vergine (Nativity of the Virgin Mary) (1477), the church of S. Antonio (1589) and the church of San Rocco (1591), as well as in the "tee", the typical abodes of inestimable value.
