Unspoilt nature and breath-taking views: the ultimate destination for an active holiday in the outdoors
Media Valtellina is a veritable paradise for adventurous outdoor enthusiasts who are looking for a fantastic holiday featuring nature and sport in abundance, with options for hiking, biking, skiing, climbing, alpinism, snowshoeing, or snowboarding.
A top pick for adrenaline-seekers, the landscape is flush with opportunities to push your limits – from high mountain peaks to stoke-inducing downhills on your mountain bike or skis. But it isn’t all about adrenaline: the whole family can enjoy an active holiday, whether through sport and recreation, a simple picnic in the beautiful surroundings of the Pian di Gembro nature reserve, or by getting up-close with nature in the Osservatorio Eco-Fauntistico Alpino di Aprica.
For an escape from city life and the daily grind, there’s nowhere better to reset body and mind than heading out into the woods and onto the trails, where you can explore Media Valtellina’s spectacular landscape at your own pace.
However, if the mere thought of physical exercise is enough to break you out in a sweat, e-bikes have revolutionised accessibility to the outdoors: Ideal for families and those with mobility issues, these functional bikes with motors allow you to explore the local trails and gravel tracks to your heart’s content, completing climbs and distances that are out of reach for many.
