Winter in Bormio
Bormio is a true paradise in winter, when the town is covered in white and the soft snow makes the environment muffled and incredibly peaceful. There are many options for those who choose it as their holiday destination. First of all, he says Bormio, says skiing: the descent will give you a lot of fun and a completely incomparable feeling of freedom. You can reach the ski lifts in just 5/10 minutes by car. Agriturismo San Gallo is in a very convenient location.
Two excellent alternatives to downhill skiing are cross-country skiing and mountaineering. Cross-country skiing is perfect also for those who have never put skis on, and the Alute area at the entrance to Bormio offers a 5 km loop trail. Mountaineering, on the other hand, is a sport that will allow you to reach marvellous places, where you will be astounded by the splendid views, but familiarity with the descent is necessary.
But don't worry: if you are a fan of walking in the mountains, with snowshoes you will be able to cover numerous itineraries. Speaking about Bormio, then, we cannot fail to mention ice skating at the Palaghiaccio, which has hosted numerous competitions over the years. Here you can rent skates to enjoy an afternoon or an evening different from the usual. An alternative that has become especially popular in recent years is the fat bike, which allows two-wheel enthusiasts to reach their favourite destinations even in winter, still on a mountain bike, but with wider wheels: try it!

There are numerous routes and levels of difficulty. If you choose to undertake challenging routes you can also contact the Alpine Guides, who will be happy to accompany you: safety first in the mountains.
Mountain bike and e-bike tours are also a very good option in summer and here too the range of trails is vast. There are many places worthy of note during a holiday in Valtellina. We will therefore limit ourselves to mentioning the Stelvio National Park, which encompasses most of them and is home to many animal and botanical species: it cannot be ruled out that you might spot some wild animals during one of your excursions. True ski lovers, who just can't give it up and want to try a completely unique experience, can also ski in the summer: the Stelvio Pass, in fact, offers the possibility of this super experience.
