In spring and summer this land of snow transforms into a verdant landscape, where nature is an authentic outdoor gym for any sport: cycling and mountain biking along the nearby Valtellina Path, rafting and canoeing in the waters of the Adda river, mountaineering and climbing for those in search of a challenge in the mountains, and riding through the woods or a natural horse-man ship.

Couples or parents who visit Valtellina can choose a different activity in the mountains every day, suitable for all ages and always a short distance from our facility. Simply venture a short distance down to the valley to the Valtellina Path, a cycle-pedestrian path which runs along the entire Sondrio province, from Lake Como to Bormio, immersed in nature, with numerous playgrounds along the entire route: ideal for a walk or leisurely cycle.

Or, choose one of hundreds of mountain excursions of various levels of difficulty (also in the winter with a pair of snow shoes), admire the animals or enjoy a relaxing day at the Thermal Baths of Bormio or at Aquagranda in Livigno.
