| YOUR HOLIDAY STARTS FROM HERE
We suggest you some easy walks in Bormio and its Valleys to discover the pleasure of experiencing the nature in winter.
Paradiso path, in Valfurva
From Santa Caterina Valfurva walk along the road to the Gavia pass. Go into the woods and climb gently for 4 km, then reach the junction to Paradiso shelter and Sci 2000 shelter. Possibility to enjoy your stay at the shelters and come back to the town along the same road or with the chairlift. You can cover the entire journey by chairlift, too.
San Gallo bike trail, from Bormio to Valdidentro
The path starts from the Bormio Tourist Office. Before to cross the Eden bridge, turn right and follow the bike trail to Santa Lucia. From here continue along the Adda river, a very quiet area. You arrive at the San Gallo church, from where you can return following the sidewalk along the road. Once past the golf course you are back in the centre of Bormio. It is a completely level route of about 7 km and suggested for everyone. From Santa Lucia, for those who want, it is possible to follow the Alute path, a round trip of about 3 km which leads to the departure of the ski lifts, for a total of 5 kilometers.
Forni path, in Valfurva
Leave the Santa Caterina square behind you and walk along the road to the Forni mountain hut. After a moderate climb reach the Stella Alpina shelter from where you can see the Forni shelter in the distance. Walk for 800 m slightly uphill and reach the shelter; opposite is the “Forni” glacier, one of the biggest in Italy. From mid-March enjoy the view from the bar and restaurant of the shelter (you can also stay overnight). The area is well known for the presence of deers and chamoises.
Val Viola, in Valdidentro
From Arnoga (about 15 km from Bormio, towards Livigno) it is possible to follow this very easy itinerary which in the middle offers two alternative routes, taking you through woods of spruce, larch and stone pine to the glade of Malga Caricc, in an enchanting position below the peaks of the Dosdè-Viola group and their glaciers. The hut, from which it is possible to reach an impressive gorge, is usually open during the winter season.
The itinerary can be done also with snowshoes.
Pedemontana della Reit, in Bormio
Leave your car in Pravasivo along the main Stelvio road, one kilometer before the Bagni Vecchi of Bormio and take path S533. The path is characterized by short ups and downs and all along the way there are numerous other paths leading off back to the village or continuing towards other destinations. The trail traverses the Reit mount and following before the path S511 and then S531 you reach the village of Teregua, in Valfurva: the suggested trail is long more than 6,5 km with a difference in altitude of 213 meters.
