The jewel in the Stelvio National Park: the iconic Stelvio Pass
After a dip in the warm thermal waters and a
stroll around Bormio’s lively old town, you’ll know that magic is rarely more
than a few steps away. When it comes to hiking and walking, the options are
bountiful. You’ll spot the car-free pedestrian and cycling path that starts in
the town – it’s completely flat and includes a stretch along the river with a
number of playgrounds and suitable picnic spots.
The Pedemontana della Reit is a path that starts about a kilometre before reaching the QC Terme Bagni Vecchi. A real escape into nature, follow the loop and just wait for the glimpses you’ll get of Bormio from its privileged position. On the same trail you can go as far as Valfurva, or take the hairpin turns in the forest up the Croce della Reit, a cross overlooking the town.
Up on the Stelvio Pass, the rewards are plentiful: views in every direction, and designated paths to explore relics from the First World War, including the Filon del Mott – a former military fortification at 2,800 metres above sea level.
