The Hotel Dragon's a cosy hotel with a great atmosphere and breath-taking views. The hotel rooms have been renovated to a fantastic standard with modern features and alpine charm. The hotel's just 100 metres from the centre, putting you in the perfect location for exploring the local area.

A buzzing atmosphere and fantastic wine bar

The hotel has a fantastic bar, making it a popular spot in town. There's a small sun terrace where you can sit and relax with an aperitivo, it's great for catching some summer sun and admiring the dramatic mountains surrounding the hotel. For something a bit more unique you can arrange a wine tasting (payable locally) in the hotel bar. The bar stocks over 200 wine labels and it's been decorated in a cosy and intimate alpine-style.

Great access to local walking trails

You're just 150 metres from the Cretaz lift which which makes getting to know the mountains on foot or by bike really easy. With Cervinia's high altitude there are lots of hiking trails to discover in the area. Grab your walking boots and head out to explore wonderful scenery.

Perching on the Italian slopes of the mighty Matterhorn - or Monte Cervino as the locals call it - is the little town of Cervinia. This is where Italy meets Switzerland, very easily visited during the day thanks to the lift network linking Cervinia to Zermatt. From its high glaciers - where you can ski, even in summer - down to its main street lined with bars and restaurants, Cervinia has been on the map for hiking, climbing, biking (and skiing) for over a century. And for good reason…

Alpine Crossing and the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise

The brand new Cervinia-Zermatt Alpine Crossing - the highest cross country gondola in Europe, links Testa Grigia in Italy to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise in Zermatt. This is big news for the area and a long time coming as the idea for the Alpine Crossing was conceived 80 years ago! At the top, there’s a 360° viewing platform, a ‘glacier palace’, fine dining, ski slopes, plus hiking and biking trails. With wheelchair access, it’s accessible for everyone.

No better place for a family trip

It being Italy, and Italians loving children as they do, Cervinia is perfetto for a family holiday. On top of the outdoor space and activities - easy walking routes, fun biking trails, rafting and the kids’ snow park (even in summer!) - there are also fairy-tale castles to explore. And let’s not forget this is the land of pizza, pasta and gelato - every childs’ favourite food.

The ‘blue lake’ - or Lago Blu, should we say

Half an hour’s walk from Cervinia is Lago Blu with its deep turquoise colour. Walk around the small lake to catch it from the right angle and see the Matterhorn mirrored in its clear waters. Not far away are the Layet Lakes, three pozze (or ‘puddles’) of spring water, all different hues of blue-green, that overlook the valley.

Through the Aosta Valley: Cammino Balteo

Here’s one for the hard-core hikers: hiking the Cammino Balteo (or perhaps just a section or two…). This is a circular itinerary of around 220 miles which can be split into 23 stages (4-6 hours each) through the entire Aosta Valley, with its lakes, nature reserves, waterfalls, pastures, vineyards, ancient fortresses and castles. Most of the walking is gentle, and not too high-altitude, so dipping in and out of the full circuit and official route is a good option, even with kids in tow.
