Nature, history and art. The Stelvio National Park covers 65% of the Bormio region. In summer and winter, come and discover the extraordinary historical and artistic heritage contained in these valleys.
The Stelvio National Park is the largest of the original Italian national parks. It was founded in 1935 and occupies an area of 530 km², the same size as the Isle of Man! The centre of the park is the Ortles-Cevedale range of mountains and it extends outwards across parts of Lombardy, South Tyrol and Trentino.
The part in Lombardy, which includes Bormio, is the largest of the three sectors of the park, covering around 60,000 ha.

In both summer and winter, the Stelvio National Park organises a wide range of activities. These initiatives range from conferences run by experts to guided walks, from educational workshops for families at the park’s visitor centres to screenings of documentaries about protected landscapes around the world.
These are a good way to enjoy the beauty of the park, guided by experts, and to get a deeper understanding of the environments in which the plants and animals of the Stelvio National Park live.
