Summer in the mountains is the pleasure of discovery: of the wide spaces, of the climbs that lead to new horizons, to unexpected encounters with the local fauna, is
move freely. That's why we thought to propose you 5 wonders of our territory, to reach quickly but savor slowly!
The 5 best places to visit this summer in Bormio are reachable in a few minutes by car, by bus, with our mountain-bikes or even with the
our new electric scooters.
1° - Cancan lakes - Discovering the "Decauville"
Reachable in about 15 minutes by car from our hotel. Located in the heart of the Fraele Valley in the municipality of Valdidentro, they are framed by a very suggestive mountain panorama. They are artificial lakes, created in the last century for the production of electricity and which have led to the creation of a unique setting, which today has become a starting point for simple walks or adventurous paths that allow you to reach Monte Scale. Or, take the famous "Decauville", an entirely flat walk that offers a wide view of the valleys below, ideal for a relaxing walk or a quiet mountain bike ride.
2° - Val Viola - Between huts and marmots
It is possible to reach Val Viola by taking the path that you will find along the main road n. 301 that connects Bormio to Livigno in Località Arnoga (20 minutes by car from Bormio). There are many paths that allow you to reach other places such as Val Viola Poschiavina (Val di Campo), the Vallaccia Pass, the Foscagno Valley, the Dosdé Pass, Val D'Avedo, the Verva Pass and Val Grosina. The route through the Val Viola allows you to admire the typical mountain huts, made of wood and stone, that the farmers use during the summer to graze their cattle. You can observe the local wheat and rye crops, the beautiful alpine flowers such as gentians, rhododendrons, anemones and, if you are lucky, have an unusual encounter with the nice marmots.
3° - Val Zebrù - Listening to the deer
The route starts from the car park of Niblogo, which is about 15 minutes by car from Bormio, in the direction of Santa Caterina Valfurva.
The suggestive valley, of glacial origin, extends for about 12 km inside the Stelvio National Park, and offers magnificent views and typical alpine panoramas. The route is simple, suitable for all levels. During the summer period excursions are organized to observe the deer and listen to their roaring in their mating period.
4° - Bormio Baths Park - A walk in the footsteps of the ancient Romans
The starting point is a 5-minute drive from Bormio, near the car park that you will find along the Stelvio road, a few meters from the entrance to the Bagni Vecchi. You will discover the legendary and beautiful Spa Park that surrounds the 2 historical thermal structures. We recommend a walk along the historic paths practiced by the Romans, you will discover the public springs of thermal water, but also ancient springs such as the Pliniana spring with anti-inflammatory and curative properties.
5° - Pedemontana - A simple walk in the heart of the Stelvio river
The starting point is a 5-minute drive from Bormio, at the car park located along the Stelvio road, a few meters before the entrance to the Bagni Vecchi. The Pedemontana offers a flat dirt track, mainly suitable for families, but also for those who want a simple walk in the green without struggling too much. The route is connected to several other paths, in particular to the Reit cross which, once reached, allows you to enjoy a breathtaking view of Bormio.
