Mountain hiking in Bormio. Trekking on the Mount Vallecetta


Mountain hiking is good for your health. And it's not only the exercise which is so simple and natural but it's also the direct contact with the nature, the relaxed environment, clean and silent, which will do great benefits to your mind.

In this website we recommend six trekking itineraries of different difficulties. None of them is to be considered for extreme mountaineers. They are all trails suitable for everyone and, anyhow, we are only recommending itineraries which include a ride with one of our lifts, on the cableway or cablecar.
