The biathlon in Lombardy

The biathlon center in Valdidentro opened in the winter season 2007/2008, and is the only facility in Lombardy where it is possible to practice this spectacular Olympic sport which combines cross country skiing with small-caliber rifle shooting. The biathlon center is composed of two quite distinct firing ranges. At Le Motte, located in a pine forest along a 3.72 mile (6 km) Nordic track (roller ski in the summer), there are 8 targets of different shapes. Instead, the range at the cross-country skiing center of Valdidentro, located along the Nordic ski track of Viola, is composed of 30 sophisticated electronic targets placed at 50 meters from the shooting stands, and is regularly certified for competition. The biathlon center is available by reservation, and is open to individuals, groups, and ski clubs.

Dog Sleds – in contact with nature

The Italian Center Dog Sled Husky Village offers you the chance to experience the thrill of driving your own dog sled, with your team of Alaskan Huskies (from 2 to 4); you will issue orders that you will be taught in advance, you will decide how to get around in groups of maximum 8 persons. Of course, an instructor and well trained dogs will help you to live this exciting adventure.

In the magical scenery of the Stelvio National Park, along the Decauville or Val Viola, you will slide on the snow, immersed in the silence of the woods, broken only by the advancing of your sled and your dogs and you will find a sense of great freedom and peace.

Suitable for everyone (children, the elderly, and the disabled can sit in the warm bag on the sled driven by the instructor), the Center organizes basic excursions of 5 km of 40 to 60 minutes, longer excursions of about 2 hours, and team competitions for larger groups and Company retreats.

In the summer it is possible to organize excursions of Husky Trekking. Each participant wears a harness connected by a tow line to a Husky, which, following the commands you give it, will tow you along walk on the paths in the woods.
