Livigno Holidays

Lose yourself in mountains, meadows and miles of glacial lakes

Are you looking for an adventure or do you just want to relax on the mountain side? In Livigno, you don't have to choose! Located in a valley close to the Swiss boarder it's the perfect place to head if you want to spend your holiday reconnecting with nature - you'll be surrounded by mountains, lakes, forests and panoramic views.

What to see on a Livigno holiday

In the Summer there's plenty of opportunity for hiking and adrenaline filled mountain biking. The Forcola pass links Italy to Switzerland - which means you can cross the boarder and explore trails over there too. You can go paddle boarding on Livigno Lake or even test your agility at one of Livigno's adventure parks. What we love to do is morning yoga on the mountain, surrounded by stunning views of the valley. It's the best way to find your inner zen! If wildlife is your thing, then look out for the Ibex and Wild Eagles.

The food here isn't typically Italian, instead it's based on the flavours and cooking styles found in the valley. You'll get to try delicious local mountain dishes which are usually made from rich meats, and local cheeses - these dishes are bound to set you up for an action packed day exploring the mountains.

Things To Do

Lace up those boots

Livigno and the surrounding Stelvio National Park provide the most stunning backdrop for long walks and hikes. Whether you're a hard-core hiker or just want to stroll around and take in the view, you'll find trails for all levels.

 

Connect with nature

The Stelvio National park is a nature lovers paradise. It's actually the largest protected area in Europe, created to preserve the natural environment for generations to come. Made up of mountain ranges, glacial lakes, waterfalls, woodland, meadows and historical villages, it's a fantastic place to explore. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like deer, ibex, foxes and marmoys and don't forget to look up... you may be lucky enough to spot a bearded vulture or golden eagle. We love looking out for tracks and footprints to see which animals have been around. If it's plants that you're interested in, you'll want to look out for the glacial buttercups which grow high up on the mountain. 

 

Fun for the family

Livigno is full of adventure parks, which make a great family day out. You should visit Larix Park, a high ropes and adventure centre in the middle of the Larch Forest. It has nine different adventure routes, with something to suit all ages. You could also try Aquagrandia activity centre which has a swimming pool, slides, children's entertainment, a spa and a gym. The whole family will be happy! 

 

Mottolino Bike Park

If you love downhill and free ride mountain biking, or you want to give it a go, then you have to go to Mottolino Bike Park. It was specially built for riders looking to improve technique, learn new tricks and try out different jumps. If you're looking for more of a challenge you can practise your jump technique with the inflatable landing or try the downhill biking tracks.

 

Food and Drink

Try Bitto, a cheese typical of the Valtellina region. It is a semi-hard cheese which can be aged for between 40 days and three years. Enjoy the cheese with a few slices of Bresaola della Valtellina (dried Italian salt-beef) and some local Valtellina wine.

If you want something heartier to eat, Manfrigole is a filling dish made with buckweat pancakes stuffed with Bresaola and Casera cheese.

Good to know

  • Livigno's great for shopping - it's a duty-free area, so you might even bag a bargain while you're there
  • It's easy to cross the border into Switzerland, so if you're walking or cycling you can explore the Swiss trails too
  • Try Pizzoccheri, a traditional buckwheat pasta dish with savoy cabbage and Valtellina Cheese
