/Val Viola: a corner of paradise

Discover the fascination of  the winter and the numerous snow activities in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Alta Valtellina

Val Viola: a pearl of Valdidentro

In the Arnoga hamlet of Valdidentro (about 15 km from Bormio direction Livigno), here’s one of the destinations not to be missed for hiking lovers, and ideal for everyone: the Val Viola, an alpine valley coming alive from the waters of the Viola river. A long mountain chain, with peaks over 3000 meters, is the natural scenery showing up before the eyes of the visitors: among the most important peaks you can recognize the Cima Piazzi (3439 meters), the Cima Viola (3374 meters) and the Cima Dosdè (3280 meters).

Full immersion in the snow of the Val Viola

All dressed in white, the Val Viola is even more fascinating and, to best enjoy its beauty, we suggest some outdoor activities:

  • snowshoeing: a well signed, easy route of 11 km which is accessible  even at night time with a frontal torch (click here for further details);
  • fat bikes: feel like riding your bike along snow covered trails? The Val Viola is the perfect place to try these bikes, both day and night time (click here for further details);
  • ski mountaineering: thanks to the high peaks surrounding the valley, there are many different excursions, also accompanied by the local Alpine Guides, who can organize individual or group outings (click here for further details);
  • hiking: last but not least, here’s another great way to enjoy the peace of the Val Viola even in Winter!

While doing these outdoor activities, and to get your energy back, it is also possible to taste the local culinary specialties in a mountain restaurant in the heart of the Val Viola or in one of the restaurants located in Arnoga. Sciatt, pizzoccheri and other delicious dishes are waiting for you!
